Stephanie McMahon has received yet another honor for her work with WWE. The chief brand officer has previously received awards from the March of Dimes as well as an honorary Doctorate. McMahon has now been named to Variety’s 2022 Women’s Impact list.
The list honors women who have made great impacts on the media landscape over the past year. Other notable names include Emily Ratajkowski and Maggie Gyllenhaal. Stephanie McMahon has focused her professional efforts on building the WWE brand through new media ventures and community outreach.
“As CBO, McMahon leads the company’s global brand strength and growth, overseeing marketing, creative services and global sales and partnerships. While she sometimes still plays a character in front of the camera, her focus is behind the scenes — and shining the light on the female performers as the driving force behind WWE’s Women’s Evolution.
This year, she over saw WrestleMania 38, which took place live across two nights and became WWE’s highest-grossing and most-attended event in company history with more than 150,000 fans.”
Stephanie McMahon’s profile notes that she was the driving force behind the WWE Women’s Evolution. Former WWE superstar AJ Lee may have something to say about that. In 2015, she responded to a tweet touting McMahon’s commitment to equality by noting that female WWE superstars were pulling in record profits.
The profile goes on to describe Stephanie McMahon’s biggest upcoming challenges. Steph said the transition from web 2.0 to web 3.0 as well as the blockchain and the advancement of AI were on her radar. McMahon has previously said she hoped to see WWE step into the metaverse. Time will tell how all of that goes, but for now, Stephanie is once again getting major publicity for her work.
