Internal story as to why Stephanie McMahon really left WWE

As previously noted, Stephanie McMahon announced her resignation from WWE following the return of her father Vince. Dave Meltzer of noted the following regarding Stephanie’s departure…

“The story internally as to why Stephanie McMahon really left is that, and this comes from those unhappy that she left, is that she had done a great job thrown into the co-CEO role, and with Vince back, was about to be demoted and basically she doesn’t need the money or the job and had already decided last year to take a leave anyway. Of course the difference between a leave and staying on the Board, and a full break and leaving the Board, indicates this was a lot stronger move.”

Multiple WWE stars have publicly praised Stephanie while discussing her departure including Kevin Owens and Kurt Angle.
