The daughter of the most powerful man in professional wrestling, you would think Stephanie would have been aware of her father's stature both in the industry and the world of popular culture. She wasn't, though. In fact, to her, seeing her father on television interviewing some of the biggest professional wrestlers in the world was just daddy doing his job, as she told RXMuscle.com.
It's hard to say what life was like growing up as "Vince McMahon's daughter". I would watch my dad on Saturday mornings do interviews and I'd watch him commentate with Jesse Ventura on Saturday Night's Main Events. It was just what my dad did. It wasn't until I was a little older and the other kids tried to make fun of me that I realized my situation was a little different (I actually kicked a kid in the shins for saying wrestling was fake!).
Considering the fact that Stephanie has a temper very much like her father, as Triple H revealed in his 2013 DVD release "Thy Kingdom Come," I would not have wanted to be on the receiving end of that kick to the shins.
Erik Beaston is a freelance pro wrestling writer who likes long walks in the park, dandelions and has not quite figured out that this introduction is not for Match.com. He resides in Parts Unknown, where he hosts weekly cookouts with Kane, The Ultimate Warrior, Papa Shango and The Boogeyman. Be jealous.
