Stephanie McMahon had a lot of responsibilities in WWE as she is the daughter of Vince McMahon. For a long time, she was the Chief Brand Officer of WWE and did her role dutifully. Her hiatus could also be blamed on a certain mentality.
It came as a shock for many people when Stephanie McMahon announced that she will be stepping away from her position as the Chief Brand Officer of WWE. It was previously reported that the company plans to bring in a new full-time hire to fill some of her duties.
In fact, many in WWE were utterly surprised by the announcement as well. While speaking on The Ariel Helwani Show, former WWE Superstar Lance Storm talked about Stephanie’s hiatus from WWE. He blamed it on an ”all or nothing” mentality, which ultimately became too much for her.
“I wouldn’t be surprised with Steph and Hunter [Triple H], that they’re falling victims to the all or nothing mentality.
And when you’re in WWE, man, you’re in WWE. It’s a 24/7 lifestyle and I can see where Hunter led that 24/7 lifestyle, and he’s got a family he’s got to try to, you know, be a part of as well that he rode that until he almost physically broke. He had the heart issue, and had to go, ‘I gotta stop.’
And maybe stopping and getting away, maybe Steph and him realized that maybe 24/7 at work isn’t the best thing for us. And I believe Hunter is coming back and doing more, and maybe Steph decided, you know, Hunter had however long he had off. I don’t know what it was. Maybe she’s like, ‘I need that too.’”
