Stephanie McMahon has been a significant and influential figure in WWE for many years, contributing to the company’s success in various roles. Her recent departure from the co-CEO position marked a significant shift in her involvement with WWE. Although she made a return at WrestleMania 40, a former WWE writer has expressed criticism of her previous role in WWE Creative, calling it Vince McMahon’s “biggest mistake.”

WrestleMania 40 commenced with Stephanie McMahon at the forefront, delivering a poignant promo that reminisced about her past experiences with the event while acknowledging the transformative impact of Paul Levesque’s leadership.

Fans were excited to see Stephanie McMahon and speculated about her potential future involvement in the company. During the early 2000s, she was in charge of WWE creative for some shows, contributing to the storylines and direction of the company’s programming.

Throughout her time with WWE, Stephanie has served as Chief Brand Officer, overseeing the company’s brand strategy and marketing efforts. She has also made a name for herself as an on-screen heel authority figure, often clashing with wrestlers and playing the role of a villain in storylines.


However, WWE veteran Vince Russo expressed disappointment in her previous tenure as the head of creative, stating that it was the “biggest mistake” Vince McMahon made while he was leading the company while speaking on Legion of RAW.

“Stephanie took over creative when I left and I knew that was the biggest mistake Vince McMahon could possibly make because, first of all, I spent a lot of time with Stephanie and I never saw a creative side to her. I saw her business side, brilliant. I never saw her creative side.”

Stephanie McMahon’s appearance at WrestleMania 40 was also kept a secret. Nevertheless, we will have to wait and see if McMahon will ever return to WWE television again.
