As previously noted, Vince McMahon has temporarily has stepped down as WWE Chairman & CEO and his daughter Stephanie has filled in with an interim position.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com reports that there was an “all hands on deck” company meeting that took place on Thursday and Stephanie addressed her father. Johnson wrote the following…
“PWInsider.com has been told McMahon directly addressed the obvious elephant in the room noting that everyone is aware the Board of Directors is investigating her father who has ‘stepped back.’ She noted that she loves her father and that she loves WWE and will be doing everything she can for the company in the days ahead.”
It’s also believed that Stephanie has been actively involved in other meetings that her father would usually be part of. Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted that Stephanie’s interim role “was said to be based on the decision of a Special committee, which would be the eight members of the Board of Directors that were not Nick Khan, Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon or Paul Levesque.”
