Stephanie McMahon’s team was released
Fightful Select reported an interested note on the matter. During one of the recent rounds of layoffs, several of Stephanie McMahon’s close coworkers were let go. A large portion of the team she worked directly with was let go at that time.
“Last year, much of Stephanie McMahon’s team that she worked with directly was dismantled during rounds of office layoffs. Those that we spoke to who worked directly with Stephanie McMahon spoke highly of her and said they enjoyed their time there. One said that they weren’t surprised by her decision, but didn’t have any reason behind it.”
Stephanie McMahon also revealed she recently suffered an injury but that she is making great progress in training to get back to full strength. She recently made a WWE appearance at WrestleMania 38 when he introduced the Olympic Gold Medalist Gable Steveson to the fans in attendance. There is currently no timetable for Stephanie McMahon to return to the WWE. We will have to wait and see when Stephanie decides to make her return to the company.
