Latest news on Stephanie McMahon's status

As we all know by now Stephanie McMahon took a momentary hiatus from WWE to devote herself to her family, according to the woman's words on her Twitter account: "From tomorrow, I will abstain from most of my responsibilities with WWE.

WWE is a lifelong legacy for me and I plan to return to the company I love after focusing on my family." But obviously, the reporters wanted to investigate the matter, not believing the family's excuse. Recently, in fact, several very important sources of US web wrestling, such as the Wrestling Observer or Andrew Zarian, the well-known US journalist, said that Stephanie's decision to temporarily leave the family company could be caused by her father's attitude towards her.

In particular, Vince McMahon's intention is to still bring millions and millions of dollars into the company, through sponsorship campaigns, like the UFC. But Stephanie wasn't agreeable to the idea.

Backstage news on Stephanie McMahon

Stephanie McMahon's leave of absence is possibly linked to WWE's ongoing lawsuit against MLW.

In the latest update on the matter, Dave Meltzer reported that more and more sources have told him that this could all have to do with the ongoing lawsuit between MLW and WWE. Indeed, on January 11, 2022, Major League Wrestling filed a lawsuit against World Wrestling Entertainment based on alleged ongoing attempts to undermine competition and monopolize the professional wrestling market by interfering with MLW's contracts and business prospects, particularly way WWE was accused of forcing FOX to tear up a streaming contract between Tubi TV and MLW.

It is right to ask: what does Stephanie McMahon have to do with the cause? Apparently, according to the various reports, it was Vince McMahon himself who contacted FOX to try to terminate the agreement between MLW and Tubi TV, which probably created disagreements within the family and consequently in the business, with Stephanie not finding herself again in agreement with her father's gestures and ideals.

It was alleged that the company called FOX and demanded to halt their partnership with MLW, or else they will lose all the related content and end their partnership. Days before the agreement was about to be finalized, the deal between Major League Wrestling and FOX fell through, which resulted in huge losses for Major League Wrestling.
