Stephanie McMahon has revealed that her father was initially “shocked” when she revealed to him that she wanted to join the WWE.
“It was funny,” Stephanie said. “When I was about 16, he pulled me aside and we were taking a walk. And he said, ‘So, what do you think you want to study? What do you want to do?’
“And I was like, ‘Dad, I want to be in (WWE)’. And he looked at me so shocked because I think he assumed that about my brother (Shane McMahon) but he didn’t think that about me.”
Stephanie McMahon is the current Chief Brand Officer of the WWE. She has also appeared on-screen in both in-ring and authority roles. The 43-year-old had a run with the WWE Women’s Championship back in 2000 and has had notable feuds against the likes of Trish Stratus, Sable, Lita and Brie Bella.
