Senator pokes fun at Triple H during Linda McMahon Senate confirmation hearing

BY Nate Scott • January 25, 2017

Triple H showed up at Congress on Tuesday to lend his support to former WWE CEO Linda McMahon, who was undergoing a confirmation hearing as she has been tabbed by President Donald Trump to head the Small Business Administration.

Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) couldn't resist the opportunity to get in some friendly jabs at the wrestler during his introductory remarks.

After thanking McMahon for volunteering to serve her country, Booker said: "I want to also just say when your daughter and son-in-law stood up, just want to say for the record, that your daughter is far more fierce and intimidating than your son-in-law.”

When someone at the event said "that's sexist," Triple H chimed in from the crowd "but true!"

Booker went on: “[Triple H] and I are about the same age, almost exactly the same age, and Paul’s letting himself slip a little bit so after this maybe we should go to the Senate gym so I can give Triple H some triple help in getting back in shape.”

Triple H, who was born Paul Michael Levesque, is married to WWE's Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon.
