Stephanie McMahon and Paul Heyman worked together in WWE for several years. Heyman was formerly the lead writer for SmackDown while The Billion Dollar Princess held several positions in Creative. The two collaborated on numerous occasions onscreen. However, The Bloodline’s Wise Man and the former WWE Chairwoman did not always get along.
Rene Dupree, who is a former WWE superstar, recently alleged that Stephanie McMahon and Paul Heyman disliked each other. Dupree revealed it on an episode of his Cafe de Rene podcast adding that Roman Reigns’ special counsel was also vocal about it.
I know she didn’t like Paul Heyman. Paul Heymam didn’t like her, yeah. He was very vocal about the fact that they didn’t like each other. But if I were to pick one, I’d pick Stephanie over Paul.
Despite having a rocky relationship for several years, Paul Heyman and Stephanie McMahon appear to have buried the past. According to recent reports, the two have been getting along recently.
Paul Heyman lauded The Billion Dollar Princess in an interview with Ryan Satin on Out of Character, noting that she was his favorite person to do a promo section with. Heyman described her as ‘real,’ ‘authentic,’ and ‘invested’ in what she does.
Stephanie McMahon because she’s very real out there. She’s authentic. Whether she knows what you’re going to say or not know what you’re going to say, she’s three steps ahead at all times. If you’re not four steps ahead, you are playing catch up with her. She’s so invested in the character. Just the little nuances that she does. The way she can sit there and stare you down and hold back the smile, but the smile starts to break through. A very underrated performer and an interesting, intriguing, challenging person to stand across the ring with, with microphones in your hand. It can go different ways really quickly.
Following Vince McMahon’s return to the position of Executive Chairman, Stephanie McMahon resigned as WWE Chairwoman and co-CEO. Meanwhile, as WWE’s Chief Content Officer, Triple H still leads the creative team.
It has been theorized that Stephanie McMahon and Triple H could start promotion outside WWE. Let’s see what the two have in store for us in the future, as well as where WWE ends up. Keep an eye on Ringside News for the latest updates.
