Update regarding Stephanie McMahon taking a leave of absence from WWE

As previously noted, WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon announced that she will be taking a leave of absence from the “majority” of her WWE responsibilities.

Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com wrote the following regarding Stephanie’s decision…

“All kinds of speculation has transpired, but the only thing we were told directly is that this was 100 percent her choice, and this has been coming for some time, not something that just happened out of nowhere even though it would appear because virtually nobody knew anything except a few who had kept it totally quiet until just before she released the info but she was not forced or pressured and it was her choice.”

Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics.com noted that WWE President Nick Khan will be taking over most of Stephanie’s duties during her time away.
