At WrestleMania 40, Stephanie McMahon returned to the spotlight, delivering a poignant address that not only celebrated her storied history with the event but also acknowledged the evolving landscape under the leadership of Paul Levesque, better known as WWF Legend Triple H.

Fans, eager to see what the future holds for Stephanie within the company, have been abuzz with speculation.

Her previous stints in the early 2000s as a key figure in WWE Creative, where she had a hand in shaping storylines and programming direction, have added to the intrigue surrounding her potential future roles.

Throughout her tenure with WWE, Stephanie McMahon has worn many hats, including that of Chief Brand Officer, where she has played a pivotal role in shaping the company’s brand strategy and marketing efforts, but on-screen, she has portrayed the role of a heel authority figure.

However, Stephanie’s legacy within the WWF/WWE has not been without its controversies.

Former WWF writer Vince Russo recently expressed criticism of her previous tenure as head of creative, going so far as to label it as Vince McMahon’s ‘biggest mistake’.

Russo’s comments, made on Legion of RAW podcast, have reignited discussions about Stephanie McMahon’s influence on WWE’s creative direction and the dynamics of power within the company.

Here’s what the former WCW World Heavyweight Champion had to say:

“Stephanie took over creative when I left and I knew that was the biggest mistake Vince McMahon could possibly make because, first of all, I spent a lot of time with Stephanie and I never saw a creative side to her. I saw her business side, brilliant. I never saw her creative side.”
