Stephanie McMahon tweeted that she would be taking a “leave of absence” from the majority of her roles in WWE.
This news has certainly taken the WWE Universe by storm. McMahon was the Chief Brand Officer of WWE. In her tweet, the 45-year-old mentioned that the temporary time-off that she opted to take is because she wants to focus on her family.
McMahon and Triple H have three daughters: Aurora Rose Levesque, Murphy Claire Levesque, and Vaughn Evelyn Levesque.
The former world champion also mentioned in the tweet that she will look forward to returning to the Stamford-based company that she loves. Fans are happy that McMahon’s leave is not a permanent one and she intends to get back to work in WWE in the future.
She wrote in her tweet:
“As of tomorrow, I am taking a leave of absence from the majority of my responsibilities at WWE. WWE is a lifelong legacy for me and I look forward to returning to the company that I love after taking this time to focus on my family.”
“Thank you for being someone to look up to….” – Sonya Deville
Sonya Deville has portrayed the role of an on-screen WWE official. A few weeks ago she revealed that she had incorporated a lot of her character traits from Stephanie McMahon.
While speaking to Ryan Satin on the Out of Character Podcast, Deville said: “I’ve gotten a lot of what I do from Stephanie, looking back on the old Stephanie stuff, I think that is Vince’s kind of vision for me, a Stephanie-esque character. When I do get in the ring, it’s like yeah I get in the ring but I get in the ring as an authority figure. I will use my power how I see fit and how I can to my advantage and I’ll enjoy doing it because that’s how Steph does and that’s how Vince did. I’ve taken a lot of notes from both of their past work for sure.”
Now the former Absolution member has reacted to McMahon’s revelation regarding taking a temporary break from WWE. Deville tweeted: “The absolute best. Thank you for being someone to look up to and learn from Steph.”
Interestingly, Sonya Deville and Stephanie McMahon also share their birthdays on September 24.
