Realistically, how do you see HHH's career going if he hadn't married Stephanie? He was obviously talented in the ring and his mega push started happening prior to him hooking up with Stephanie, but do you see him sustaining his spot as a top guy for the 10+ years he did without marrying the boss's daughter?
Yeah, he's a smart guy who already had Vince's ear before the banging of the boss's daughter started, I honestly don't think things would have progressed much differently. Had he, say, married Chyna, then that probably would have fucked things up for him from a political standpoint, but it's not like Stephanie accelerated his push or anything. That was happening no matter what. It's more that being Vince-in-law helped him go up the corporate side of the ladder, which he probably wouldn't have accomplished as one of the mere pieces of talent, no matter how many titles he accumulated in that role.
