Triple H interview highlights

The New York Post's Page Six features an interesting interview with Triple H this week. Here are a few highlights:

Wrestling and home life:

"Vince McMahon runs the WWE. I'm married to his daughter seven years. We live in Connecticut with three girls -- 4½, 2½ and 6 months. I'm 41. Still wrestling. It's very physical. I've had injuries, like torn quads off my biceps and thighs. People believe the sport's fake and nothing hurts. Listen, doesn't hurt any the less when a 350-pound guy jumps on you. Ten years from now I want to be able to pick up my kids. I'm also a WWE executive. I'm a wrestling fan. As a boy I watched it on TV with my father. At 20, I met a guy and the rest is history. Right away you get a flashy trick name so you're a superhero come to life. Nobody pays $20 to see his next-door neighbor. Wrestling's made me rich. Very. But everyone's surprised that a wrestler can be not only talented but also articulate. Listen, we're theater actors. Bad guy versus good guy. It's a show. We're onstage telling a story through our actions."

The McMahons:

"The WWE financed this movie. Both McMahons love the grandchildren. Come around all the time. Take them to school. Their house even has sleepovers. I did appearances and campaign rallies for my mother-in-law. She's great and staying politically involved. Lieberman's not running again so she can try once more in 2012."
