• Backstage Sympathy For Interim WWE CEO Stephanie McMahon (Details)
Due to the ongoing investigation of alleged misconduct by Vince McMahon and John Laurinaitis, Vince voluntarily stepped down from his position as CEO and Chairman of the Board until the conclusion of the investigation.
However, Vince is still going to handle the WWE creative and book storylines as usual.
Stephanie McMahon has been named the Interim CEO and the Interim Chairwoman.
According to PWInsider, there’s a lot of sympathy for Stephanie backstage in WWE right now because she wanted to take a break, but was forced back:
“Yes, the primary thing we’ve heard is a lot of sympathy for Stephanie McMahon since she has been all but forced back to work despite wanting to distance herself from the company and take a deep breath for herself.
Quite a few have noted to me that they have marveled about how strong Stephanie has been despite what was described as her mother being ‘disrespected’ publicly by the situation, especially since there’s obviously been multiple NDAs involving multiple people beyond the relationship being investigated by the WWE Board of Directors.”
