Stephanie McMahon is the CBO of WWE and has a lot of influence. While speaking to SPORTNET’s Top Of Her Game show, Stephanie McMahon revealed what her father Vince McMahon’s reaction was when she told him she wanted to work in WWE. McMahon was shocked as he always assumed his son Shane would be the one to want to get into the business.
It was funny,” McMahon recalled. “When I was about 16, he pulled me aside and we were taking a walk. And he said, ‘So, what do you think you want to study? What do you want to do?’ And I was like, ‘Dad, I want to be in the business [of pro wrestling]!’ And he looked at me so shocked because I think he assumed that about my brother, but he didn’t think that about me. And I was like, ‘Dad, why do you think I sat in all of your creative meetings?
It is no secret that the McMahon family has had a good relationship with the Flairs for a long time. Stephanie McMahon knew of Charlotte Flair long before she became a WWE Superstar. She then mentioned how she has a lot of respect for Flair.
She also added that Charlotte Flair is very confident and has a big heart. Here is what she said:
“I’ve known Charlotte for a very, very, very long time and long before she ever got into WWE. And I think what I admire most about her is that she is truly herself. She is so strong, not just physically, but emotionally. She is, even though I know she’s thinking right now, ‘Oh my God – I have no confidence! I can’t believe she’s saying these things,’ but she does. I think Charlotte, when she comes into a room, you can’t help but notice her.”
“She just is who she is, and I couldn’t be more proud of the woman that she [has] become since I’ve known her since she was a lot younger. She’s just so proud and true, and an incredibly gifted athlete with this huge heart. And she just loves unconditionally, and I have so much respect for her and who she is, and everything she [has] been through. She is a remarkable human being, and I’m proud to know her.”
