Stephanie McMahon, a former WWE superstar, and the company’s chief brand officer have opted to step down from her position indefinitely. She has made it clear that she will be taking an indefinite leave of absence from her position at the company and will be absent from it for an extended period of time.
In order to spend meaningful time with her family and offer them her undivided attention, she is taking a personal leave of absence. Steph McMahon, the daughter of WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, is married to former WWE superstar and Chief Operating Officer (COO) Paul Levesque, alias Triple H, and the mother of his three daughters.

There was no more explanation given by McMahon for why he decided to resign from the sports media powerhouse. According to an earlier report from Variety, McMahon’s husband, Paul “Triple H” Levesque, underwent surgery in September 2021 after suffering a “cardiac episode.”
In an interview with Stephen A. Smith, Levesque claimed that he worried he would die before undergoing surgery. Daughters Vaughn Evelyn Levesque, Murphy Claire Levesque, and Aurora Rose Levesque were born to him and McMahon.
The majority of my obligations at WWE will cease as of tomorrow, as I have announced in an open letter to the company,” Stephanie McMahon said. My time away from WWE has allowed me to refocus on my family, and I can’t wait to return to the company I’ve loved for so long.
Know More About Stephanie McMahon
Raw, NXT, and SmackDown are just a few of Stephanie McMahon’s many wrestling brands that have been around for decades. The WWE’s pay-per-view events and television shows continue to draw big crowds, despite the competition from upstarts.
When McMahon graduated from college, she decided to join her family’s wrestling business full-time. There were several important storylines that she was part of during her time in the WWE (then known as the World Wrestling Federation). As a WWF Women’s Champion, she faced her father Vince McMahon and the “I Quit” match.
After the epidemic shut down live concerts, Variety spoke with McMahon in 2021 ahead of the company’s comeback to a regular tour schedule.
We “can’t wait to get back together and come back home where we belong,” she remarked at the time.
