    Though they always say that you should never cross the boss, this is especially true in World Wrestling Entertainment when the COO is a 13-time World Heavyweight Champion. But when Triple H isn’t busy with the day-to-day operations of the WWE, appearing onscreen as The Authority with his wife (and fellow company executive) Stephanie McMahon, […]
