Who is Stephanie McMahon and what is her net worth? | The Sun

WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon announced on May 20, 2022, that she was stepping back from her position to focus on her family.

On June 17, however, it was announced that WWE appointed Vince McMahon's daughter to serve as interim CEO and interim chairwoman amid an investigation into alleged misconduct by the Chairman/CEO.

Who is Stephanie McMahon?

Stephanie McMahon is an executive and professional wrestling personality.

She was born on September 24, 1976, in Hartford, Connecticut, and is a fourth-generation wrestling promoter who followed her father, grandfather, and great-grandfather into the family business.

The 45-year-old is one of two children, alongside older brother Shane McMahon, 52, who also works in WWE as a producer and minority owner.

Prior to becoming a fixture on WWE television starting in the infamous Attitude Era, McMahon worked a series of odd jobs in the global wrestling company such as modeling T-shirts and answering phones.


The reason Stephanie McMahon is stepping away from WWE revealed

After graduating from Greenwich High School in 1994 and earning a degree in Communications at Boston University in 1998, McMahon became a fixture in her family's company.

Over the last two decades, she has played an onscreen villainous authority figure and wrestled sporadically, including a Wrestlemania match where she tagged with husband Triple H against Ronda Rousey and WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle in 2018.

Who is Stephanie McMahon's husband and when did they get married?

McMahon began appearing on WWE flagship Raw as 'Daddy's Little Girl' in 1999 and quickly became a star in her own right.

After turning against her father Vince McMahon in a storyline, Stephanie joined forces with Triple H whom she married on-screen and in real life to establish The McMahon Helmsley Faction.

McMahon and Paul 'Triple H' Levesque got engaged on Valentine's Day in 2003 and were married in October of that year.

In an interview on The Howard Stern Show in 2002, McMahon said, “(Paul) was very flirtatious [and] he would drop hints.

“It was a very touchy situation, he was coming on to me and I know that it’s forbidden in our business for me to date any of the wrestlers.”

But it was her dad who gave them permission to date but forced them to be apart.

 “[My dad] gave us the OK [to date] and then took it away because if we were really going to be together it would have to be a big deal and it would have to be the right thing to do," McMahon said.

"So, he let us come together and then he made us be apart — and we came back together again, and if it was meant to be, it was meant to be.”

As of 2022, McMahon is reportedly worth $150million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, up from $76million in 2020.

However, the site clarifies this is the combined net worth of McMahon and her husband.

The couple has three daughters, Aurora Rose, 15, Murphy Claire, 13, and Vaughn Evelyn, 11.

Why did Stephanie McMahon step back from her WWE position?

McMahon announced she was stepping back from her role as WWE Chief Brand Officer so she could better focus on her family.

She said the change isn't permanent and in a Twitter post, she wrote, "As of tomorrow, I am taking a leave of absence from the majority of my responsibilities at WWE.

"WWE is a lifelong legacy for me and I look forward to returning to the company that I love after taking this time to focus on my family."

Her decision comes shortly after Levesque said he is leaving wrestling for good in March 2022.

Speaking on ESPN's Stephen A.'s World, Levesque said he had good reasons for retiring from the ring.

"First of all, I have a defibrillator in my chest," he said, adding, "Probably not a good idea for me to get zapped on live TV."

He said in March he had begun to get sick and doctors told him to pack a bag and go to the hospital immediately, but when he arrived, he was already experiencing heart failure.

“There’s moments in there when they’re putting you out for stuff and you think, ‘This is it. Do you wake up from this?’ That’s tough to swallow,” Levesque said.

“It makes you think differently about life. It doesn’t make you any less driven about the things that you do, but it certainly makes you appreciate the things that you have more.

"Your friends and your family.”
