|Sat Jun 25 2022
Stephanie McMahon has become the new interim CEO of WWE. Reportedly all is not well between Stephanie McMahon and the top WWE executive.
Stephanie McMahon, the daughter of former CEO of WWE, Vince McMahon is the new interim of WWE. The development is the result of Vince McMahon voluntarily stepping down from the position of Chairperson and CEO of WWE.
Vince is facing the allegation of a whopping $3 million secret settlement with a former women employee of WWE. The settlement prevents a former employee from talking about her relationship with McMahon. The company of WWE is conducting a probe about the matter.
In the previous month, the former CBO of WWE had made an announcement stating that she would be taking a break from her duties. She previously served as the Chief Brand Officer of WWE. However, seems like the break did not last long as she was brought back after the misconduct allegations against her father.
Stephanie, herself made an announcement about her being appointed as the interim CEO. She took to the social media site Twitter to deliver the message. She said in her tweet that until the conclusion of the investigation into recent allegations, she is honoured to assume the role of interim Chairwoman & CEO.
Until the conclusion of the investigation into recent allegations, I am honored to assume the role of interim Chairwoman & CEO. I love @WWE and all it continues to do to entertain billions around the world. https://t.co/E2MushpoSG
