Stephanie McMahon had been part of WWE for several years and was always a constant source of inspiration for fans and pro wrestlers alike. After becoming a highlight during the Attitude Era thanks to her storyline, McMahon managed many backstage roles in WWE as well. McMahon resigned from her duties as co-CEO back in January, shocking many people. Now it seems WWE’s potential buyers want to hire back Stephanie McMahon.

Vince McMahon’s return to WWE as Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors, and the resulting resignation of co-CEO Stephanie McMahon, ended up shocking the pro wrestling world to its core.

In fact, quite a few fans had started to believe that Stephanie McMahon’s exit may have something to do with the potential sale of the company to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. That being said, there was absolutely no truth to this belief.

As previously reported, WWE’s current sale process is getting hot and heavy. According to Sean Ross Sapp behind Fightful’s paywall, WWE’s potential buyers want to hire back Stephanie McMahon.


There were actually numerous sources related to rumored buyers who said that Stephanie McMahon could be a desired return. One source at Disney said “these companies are doing their due diligence, they’re following the news cycles, regardless of their public levels of interest. They’re aware of the things that would make audiences and staff happy. She seemed to bring a lot of positive to the company. The company’s progression under Nick Khan was also played up.

Ric Flair was also disappointed with Stephanie McMahon’s exit. Her WWE exit also raised flags within the company. She was also thought to be sick of pro wrestling before her resignation. We’ll have to see if Stephanie McMahon will return to WWE eventually.
