• Backstage Reaction To Stephanie McMahon Stepping Away From WWE
As we noted earlier, WWE’s Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon announced the following today:
“As of tomorrow, I am taking a leave of absence from the majority of my responsibilities at WWE.
WWE is a lifelong legacy for me and I look forward to returning to the company that I love after taking this time to focus on my family.”
According to PWInsider, only the top WWE Officials knew about this and everyone else in the company was shocked to hear about Stephanie’s status.
No word yet on what exactly led to Stephanie making this decision, but we’ll keep you updated.
A couple of months ago, during an interview with D Magazine, Stephanie was asked about her in-ring status.
Below is what the former WWF Women’s Champion said:
“Well, no one’s boots are ever officially hung up. But that being said, Ronda put me in my place about 4 years ago, so I highly doubt I would make a return to the ring unless it were exactly the perfect right thing that everyone needed me to do.”
Stephanie’s last match took place at WrestleMania 34 in 2018, where she teamed up with Triple H to take on the team of Ronda Rousey & Kurt Angle.
This was Rousey’s WWE debut match and she made Stephanie tap out to the Armbar to pick up the win for her team.
