Stephanie McMahon has long been a prominent figure in the world of WWE, but her recent departure from the co-CEO position signaled a notable change in her role within the company. Despite her hiatus, anticipation for her return has been building, especially after her unexpected appearance at WrestleMania 40. In fact, new footage has emerged showing John Cena welcoming her back, fueling speculation about her future involvement with WWE.

In case you weren’t aware, Stephanie McMahon had been on a leave of absence to spend time with family when she returned to work amid the investigation into her father Vince McMahon back in 2022. Vince McMahon’s return to WWE as Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors last year led to Stephanie McMahon’s resignation.

However, in an interesting turn of events, Vince McMahon stepped down from his role as the Executive Chairman of TKO Group Holdings. This would ultimately lead to Stephanie McMahon returning at WrestleMania 40, where she opened WrestleMania 40 Sunday.

As seen by footage making rounds online, John Cena embraces Stephanie McMahon after the main event at WrestleMania 40 Sunday, as he says ‘Welcome home’ to McMahon.


Triple H has also addressed Stephanie McMahon’s return already. It remains to be seen how WWE will evolve now that Stephanie McMahon has returned to the fold after an extended absence. Her presence could potentially bring about changes and improvements within the company, but only time will tell the extent of her impact on WWE’s direction and operations.
