Vince McMahon’s shocking return to WWE more or less turned the pro wrestling world on its head. In fact, fans believed that Vince McMahon becoming a part of the Board Of Directors and subsequently the Executive Chairman of WWE spelled disaster for the company. This was done prior to Stephanie McMahon suddenly resigning from her post as co-CEO of WWE. In fact, Stephanie McMahon’s exit was called a bad sign for WWE.

According to a report from, WWE allegedly reached an agreement to sell the company to Saudi Arabia. This news infuriated, not only fans, but pro wrestlers as well, and for good reason.

That report of a Saudi Arabia sale was eventually reported to be untrue, but it is still speculated that Saudi Arabia is among the potential buyers. Some fans have also speculated that Stephanie McMahon’s departure may have something to do with the potential sale of the company to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

While speaking on The Bill Simmons Podcast, Ariel Helwani talked about Stephanie McMahon’s resignation and called it a “bad sign.”


Her resignation is a bad sign. She’s so likable and respected. She is the quintessential businesswoman. … If she decides to do something… imagine a media company run by [Stephanie]. I feel like she’d be successful in whatever she does.”

Stephanie McMahon was also visibly frustrated with Vince McMahon dismantling her team. Her WWE exit also raised flags within the company. She was also thought to be sick of pro wrestling before her resignation. It remains to be seen if Stephanie McMahon returns to her father’s company in the future.
