Getting In the Ring With Triple H & Stephanie McMahon for #MilkWins! (One on One Interview!)

In our house we are Milk Experts.

We literally go through 3-4 gallons of milk per week. The baby still has milk before he goes to bed, my 4 year old loves his cereal and his chocolate milk. I personally love a tall glass randomly and my hubby loves his cereal and occasional chocolate milk as well. We even know the best places to buy the best kind of milk (BJs milk lasts for what seems like forever) and the worst place (we no longer buy milk from the corner bodega).

The wonderful folks at Got Milk kicked off their new #MilkWins campaign at the legendary Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn Heights. I have always known that there are wonderful benefits to milk, but there were some new ones that I learned as well!

#milkwins Protein Fight Club

When I entered the gym there was a wonderful spread of protein filled breakfast, and I was provided (quite appropriately) with a tall glass of milk. Which was simply delicious considering that I had just left my workout.

There were some awesome boxers practicing in the ring too! I had never actually seen a boxing ring in person before so that was really cool. These guys and girls were so GOOD and fit!

We got awesome introductions from the Got Milk team and we got to view some awesome cute short and funny videos about why Milk is the better choice over most alternative breakfast choices.

Triple H & Stephanie McMahon for #MilkWins

Got Milk has teamed up with the amazing Triple H and Stephanie McMahon (and other WWE superstars) to show how much of a great protein source that Milk is. I personally sat in awe because when I first met my husband 15 years again in high school, I was a WWE Superfan, right around the time The Rock was HUGE. So seeing them in person was so cool, and let me tell ya, my hubby was pretty darn jealous of me!!

It was a understandably a bit of a media circus because of the amount of celebrity in the room:

I was SO lucky to get a one on one interview with them! Getting into the ring was a bit of a challenge, one person held one rope up while another held one down and I barely slithered in the ring with my narrow skirt. (Who knew it was so hard to get in and out of the boxing ring?!!)

I was super nervous, but when Triple H looked at me and said “Hey, Nellie!” I knew I was going to be fine. Triple H and his wife Stephanie are extremely cool, down to earth and quite the funny pair. See my interview with them here:

Once I was finished, I was assisted out of the ring (again) and I made my way back to the real world, back to work. It truly was a fantastic event and I was honored to attend the #MilkWins event.

If you are a milk drinker, did you know all of the awesome benefits to milk? Are you a wrestling fan? Have you ever been in a boxing ring?

WOW!!! What a cool event…and all for milk, which is kind of funny. It’s something most people drink everyday but not something you really think about. I loved all your pics and what a great interview!! Thanks for sharing…

I am not a milk drinker. Just recently I will indulge. My children are on a strawberry milk binge and can’t get enough. I try not to complain but at $7 a gallon for organic they are starting to hurt my pockets!

I don’t drink milk unless its with my cereal normally the kids will have one glass a day but we are not big milk drinkers around here for a time my son was lactose intolerant he is just now starting to drink regular milk but we don’t give him too much. Looks like lots of fun not a wrestling fan but milk does do their bodies good *side eye*

I never drink milk – I don’t even put it on my cereal anymore (quit around high school after a bad experience with curdled milk!!).
Very cool experience for you!!! Thanks for sharing all the pictures!!

Big milk drinkers here! And I get what you mean about the corner bodega NOT being the best choice. We go for the expensive stuff in this house, unfortunately. (for our wallets)
Des was a late bloomer with milk. Scarlet drank it happily from 12 months on, but Des went from nursing to..nothing but water and food for awhile. Now he sucks it down!
Anyway, great interview!!!

Thank you Tamara! The expensive stuff is simply just worth it!

I don’t like milk so I don’t drink it and fancy all the lactose intolerant discovery and all really nixed it out of the equation. I love this post though. Super cool experience for you especially since you’ve been a fan since high school. Get your Oprah on boo 🙂

Nellie August 29, 2013 - 10:09 pm

Yes, I remember your lactose intolerance! LOL Oprah, nah lol but it was fun!

WHAT! You didn’t get to wrestle with Triple H? This is preposterous. I demand they re-do the entire event.

LOL maybe if he wasn’t so dressed up!

Andrea August 26, 2013 - 1:32 pm

I can’t believe ya’ll drink all that milk. We keep it light on the milk at my house. I’m too afraid to offer my baby chocolate milk. She may never drink the regular stuff ever again!!! Cute event though.

Ok, I’m gonna start playing Six Degrees of Seperation with my friends. I’m always going to mention you and I will probably always win. You are getting to rub elbows with celebrities. HOW COOL!!!
I don’t normally watch WWE but I caught their spin off show about the girls of WWE and I saw Stephanie McMahon.

I’m so impressed with your interviewing! I would have been so nervous! I used to drink milk every night with dinner growing up. Now I have it less frequently but I still like it!

Nellie August 29, 2013 - 10:01 pm

Ha, thanks Britt, I really had to suck it all up and act like I did this everyday!

I love boxing but not WWE. When I was a kid my grandpa watched WWE every week so I haven’t really seen anything since Andre the Giant was in the ring. I love reading about your fun adventures. I think milk is anexcellent choice after a workout. Next time wear a looser skirt. 😉

I know Carli, you are SO right. I had NO idea I was going to be climbing and such. I just thought I’d take a few pics!!

I’m not a huge fan of milk. I’ll drink it with certain foods like chocolate pound cake and red velvet cake! I always have to put ice in it. I put on cereal, but never drink the leftover milk in the bowl. RJ is taking after me, though he has been drinking more lately. Hubby loves milk, but I’ve had us drinking 2% so long that he hates the taste of whole milk now! You’re also right about finding the right stores to buy milk. We buy organic from Publix it lasts a very long time. I’ve tried to milk from other places, but didn’t get as much shelf life.
I know enough about WWE to know Triple H and Stephanie are big deals!! So cool!!
