Stephanie McMahon surprised a lot of fans when she announced a leave of absence from the company. Now she is stepping away from WWE, a place she worked for practically her entire life. It seems she has become less involved in recent memory.

According to a report from Sean Sapp, Stephanie McMahon hasn’t been as involved in WWE in recent memory. That being said, there were some rumblings that she might step away, and it is very clear that she was not pushed out of the spot.

Stephanie had been less involved in WWE of late. Those that we spoke to around the situation quickly shut down any potential rumors that she was pushed out of the position. 

In case you missed it, McMahon tweeted out to say, “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.”


Since her tweet, McMahon received a ton of support from people in WWE. We will have to see how long it takes for her to return, because that was also a promise she made in her message.

One rep that we contacted said that Stephanie remains a part of the WWE family. We’ll work to add more information as we learn it.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
