What is being said about Stephanie McMahon’s relationships with Shane McMahon and Paul Heyman
As previously noted, Vince McMahon has announced his retirement from WWE and Stephanie McMahon has been named co-CEO along with Nick Khan.
During his podcast on PWTorchVIP.com, Wade Keller discussed Stephanie McMahon’s relationship with her brother Shane…
“I’m told Stephanie definitely has ideas. This is a job she has coveted since she was barely a teenager, maybe a preteen. I’ve told the story quite a bit over the years [about] Stephanie, and Jerry Jarrett told me the story on record that he was having dinner with the McMahon’s and either he or someone at the table said, ‘Shane, you know, someday you’re going to be running the company like your dad.’ And Stephanie was years younger than Shane, established her Alpha attitude. She jumped in and said, ‘Uh uh, daddy’s little girl is going to be the one running the show someday not Shane.’ That rivalry has been there. The divide between those two, I’m told, is still there. And there is no reconciliation or power sibling team expected.”
“It’s like, you know, the siblings hang out, they yell, they battle and they double cross each other, but they hang out. And they talk. And the impression I’m getting is that’s not happening with Shane and Stephanie. So, by the way, don’t expect Shane to enter the picture here unless he just, you know, goes rogue and just shows up at a show…”
Keller also commented on Stephanie’s relationship with Paul Heyman…
“He ran ECW, he revolutionized the wrestling industry. Without him there is no Attitude Era, I don’t think. And then he has worked with WWE and he butted heads with Stephanie McMahon. As I’ve talked about in recent months, it seems like to people that have seen them that Heyman and Stephanie get along. You know like, genuinely, there’s a chemistry and a dynamic between them that’s very positive. And that’s very different than you know, 15-20 years ago. So, Heyman is someone to watch. He’s really, really smart. And he is a wrestling guy.” (quotes courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
