• Key People In WWE Were Burying Stephanie McMahon On Her Way Out

As we noted yesterday, Business Insider reported that it was Vince McMahon who pushed Stephanie McMahon out of WWE because she was not achieving revenue goals related to sponsorships/brand deals.

WWE is looking to do what UFC has done – bring in over $100 million in sponsorship revenue, but Stephanie couldn’t get that done.

This led to WWE’s Investors questioning Stephanie’s abilities as an Executive in the company.

The Wrestling Observer later reported the opposite of what Business Insider reported – that Vince DID NOT push Stephanie out of the company.

However, the Observer did note that key people in WWE were burying Stephanie on her way out:

“Her leaving was 100% her choice. She had been talking about to close friends from when [Triple H] had his heart issues. That said, key people in the company once she was gone did want to bury her on the way out. That shocked a lot of people including me and those close to her.

When I noted to someone very high in the food chain about the burial starting, they told me that if they did that publicly it would be career suicide, only to find out they had already started and the burial was going to come from the top.

Here is a much bigger story here. The company outright wanted to bury her here. Something happened after she left clearly. The company did a total 180 on her about two weeks after she left. They never even did that for (former WWE Co-Presidents) [George] Barrios & [Michelle] Wilson.”
