Video: Stephanie McMahon Discusses WWE And Her Character On Good Morning America

Stephanie McMahon appeared on Tuesday’s edition of ABC’s “Good Morning America” to talk about WWE and more. 



“Women play an integral role in WWE, both in the corporate side as well as, you know, on television …,” McMahon told “Good Morning America”’s Amy Robach. “There’s a lot of girl power at WWE. And we’re proud of it.”

On what women contributed in the male-dominated world of wrestling:

“I think what women bring to the table is perspective,” McMahon replied. “I think that it’s so important for women to have a voice at the table and in the room. And oftentimes, women feel insecure, like they don’t belong at the table with men. And why? Is your opinion any less valuable than anybody else’s? No. It’s actually more valuable because you’re the only woman … And I think that the best way to really come to the best decision is to have that diversity in the room.”

On whether she had to fight particularly hard for anything because of her gender:

“I think not only because I’m a woman, but because I’m the boss’s daughter, there is a perspective that everything’s been handed to me. So that makes me have to work and fight that much harder to prove why I belong,” she said.

On her character:

“I think that there’s nothing more fun than what I get to do. WWE’s mission is to put smiles on people’s faces. Now, those smiles are usually at my expense in my character role, because I play a villain. I’m mean. I am really hateful,” she said, chuckling. “So it’s good if you don’t like me when you’re watching the show, it means I’m doing my job.”
