Everyone seems to be walking out the WWE door. Either straight into AEW, Impact, Unemployment, or in Stephanie McMahon’s case, “to focus on family.”
“As of tomorrow, I am taking a leave of absence from the majority of my responsibilities at WWE,” McMahon wrote on Twitter. “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.”
McMahon currently serves as chief brand officer of WWE. The daughter of WWE CEO Vince McMahon, she has been with the company in various capacity for decades. That includes stints on camera as both a wrestler and authority figure.
Let’s face it, Stephanie has always been great when it came to the business side of the organization, but she isn’t a good booker or and one of the main people who believed hiring comedy writers who couldn’t even get hired by Seth Meyers was a great idea. Like her husband, Triple H, the both have been off television for quite some time.
What do you think? Is this being done so WWE can quietly sell the company? We all know it’s going to happen, we just don’t know when.
