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. However, her unexpected return at WrestleMania 40 and then during the WWE Draft has stirred curiosity about her current status.

For those unaware, Stephanie McMahon had been on a leave of absence to spend time with her 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.

In an interesting turn of events, Vince McMahon stepped down from his role as the Executive Chairman of TKO Group Holdings. This development ultimately led to Stephanie McMahon’s return at WrestleMania 40, where she opened WrestleMania 40 Sunday with a powerful promo.

Her return did not stop there, as she also made an appearance during the WWE Draft last month. During a recent Q&A session on Fightful Select, Sean Ross Sapp was asked about Stephanie McMahon’s return status. He noted that while WWE has no current plans for McMahon to return in a permanent capacity, she was warmly welcomed by people backstage during her appearances.


“There weren’t any plans of it but she was welcomed back from people backstage.”

Stephanie McMahon’s appearance at WrestleMania 40 was also kept a secret, adding to the surprise and excitement of her return. Despite this, it remains uncertain if McMahon will ever make a permanent return to WWE television again, as it seems unlikely at this point in time.
