The love triangle of Stephanie McMahon, Triple H, and Kurt Angle was a widespread storyline in the early 2000s. King Kurt was trying to steal away the Queen of Queens at that time. The only catch was that Triple H was already married to Stephanie at that time. So the love triangle ended in a match at the main event.

According to Kurt Angle, Stephanie McMahon was supposed to take three more accidental bumps, but Vince McMahon interfered with the original plan. “You know it’s crazy we’re gonna do three more spots where we actually landed on Stephanie again. But Vince was like this is too much so we had to take three of them out. … She was getting her a** beat.”

Maybe the intuition of Vince McMahon as a father stopped Kurt Angle from hitting his daughter. The company was the inheritance of Stephanie McMahon and maybe Mr. McMahon wanted to secure the future of the company as well as his daughter. The Olympic gold medalist explained the whole situation as a memorable event.
