During a recent episode of Grilling JR, Jim Ross spoke on how much he enjoyed the love triangle storyline involving Stephanie, Kurt Angle and Triple H, and how he thought the feud could have lasted longer than it did. Here’s what he had to say:
I’ve always enjoyed the chemistry between Triple H and Kurt, and Stephanie added to the presentation as well. I liked their chemistry. It’s easy to pick on Triple H because he’s married to the boss’ daughter and a lot of the more insider fans have that animosity against Paul Leveque, which isn’t really fair. But the bottom line is, those guys just worked their ass off and told a great story……those guys always had good chemistry. And another thing about this is, Angle is such a world-class athlete. And the reason I bring that up – that’s not a revelation – is Triple H always stayed step for step with a gold medalist in a pro wrestling ring. So, for guys that say Triple H isn’t that good of an athlete, I beg to differ. He had great chemistry with Kurt.
I did not think it had run its course. Kurt wasn’t the champion and Triple H had his sights set on being the champion, and I’m sure Kurt did as well. But whatever the reasons were, I would’ve loved to see more Angle and Triple H. Their matches told good, viable stories, and their stories were more often than not logical – as logical as you can get in pro wrestling. It’s still pro wrestling, folks. I thought there were some more legs on that horse.
