BRIEF BREAK Why is Stephanie McMahon stepping away from WWE?

WWE star Stephanie McMahon is taking some time away from her duties at WWE.

On May 19, 2022, Stephanie McMahon took to Twitter to make the big announcement.

The chief brand officer of WWE wrote that she is stepping away to prioritize her family.

"As of tomorrow, I am taking a leave of absence from the majority of my responsibilities at WWE.

Stephanie, 45, is married to fellow retired wrestler Triple H, also known as Paul Levesque.

The couple has three children together including Vaughn Evelyn Levesque, Murphy Claire Levesque, and Aurora Rose Levesque.

This leave of absence arrives just months after Paul, 52, revealed that he has permanently retired from wrestling.

Back in March 2022, he shared with ESPN's Stephen A.'s World that he had experienced major health issues.

"First of all I have a defibrillator in my chest. Probably not a good idea for me to get zapped on live TV."

Many fans and fellow WWE wrestlers have responded to Stephanie’s news in support.

Leah Van Dale, also known as Carmella, sent Stephanie well wishes on the social media platform.
