The former WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon was recently named the interim CEO And Chairwoman after Vince McMahon stepped down from his duties. It comes after Vince got entailed in a controversial matter. The Wall Street Journal recently unveiled that WWE is investigating a secret $3 million settlement paid to a former employee of Mr. McMahon. The probe has also scooped several claims of misconduct from former employees toward The Chairman and top executive John Laurinaitis. Stephanie also sent a message after taking up the duties.
Stephanie McMahon could be the long-term boss
Wade Keller has revealed on the PWTorch audio show that based on what he’s heard from his backstage sources, there is a possibility of Stephanie McMahon becoming the long-term boss:
“Some of the things that I’m hearing, make me consider the possibility as worthy of conversation that this could result in Stephanie taking over as head of the company, and Triple H and I saw speculation of this on Twitter,” revealed Wade Keller.
Keller said that if Stephanie does take over WWE entirely from Vince McMahon, Paul Heyman could receive a more prominent role in the creative department.
Heyman was briefly RAW’s Executive Director in 2019. However, he was dismissed from the position and once again pushed as an on-screen figure. It was stated that Roman Reigns’ manager has a great relationship with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, which could enable his return to the creative team:
“I could totally see this happening, Paul Heyman taking on a bigger role in creative,” added the PWTorch journalist. “Paul Heyman gets along really well with Hunter and Stephanie. And so I wouldn’t rule that possibility out either.”
We will have to see what is next for Stephanie McMahon and Paul Heyman.
