Stephanie McMahon has a lot of responsibilities as the daughter of Vince McMahon. For a long time, she was the Chief Brand Officer of WWE but remained a controversial figure. She also left her WWE position for mysterious reasons.

Fans were somewhat shocked when Stephanie McMahon announced that she will be stepping away from her position as the Chief Brand Officer of WWE. It has since been reported that the company plans to bring in new full-time hire to fill some of her duties.

It was previously reported that the announcement came as big surprise to people within the WWE. Over the weekend, Wade Keller had this to say about Stephanie McMahon’s leave of absence on audio update.

“The indications that I’ve gotten is this is largely her just stepping away. She has worked for WWE for over 20 years, Shane McMahon has been in and out. She’s the child of Vince McMahon, who has been most embedded in this company. Most recently, the Chief Brand Officer.”


I have been told not to expect the reasons that Stephanie is stepping away, to come out. But the implication is, there are reasons. So this isn’t going to be a public scandal. But it’s something. That’s about as much as I think I can say right now, based on the indications I’ve gotten from talking to people who know or know Stephanie and Hunter or know people who know them. And yeah, [they] are giving me indications of things.”

Dave Meltzer addressed this report in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter and backed it up. He said that while the story about Stephanie McMahon wanting to spend time with her family is not wrong, there is more to the story than just that. In fact, she left her position for mysterious reasons that everyone involved has been tight-lipped about.

Stephanie McMahon is also not expected to return to WWE anytime soon. It is not known what other reasons were behind her absence. Regardless, we hope she will come back as soon as possible.
