Former WWE Star Weighs In On Reason For Stephanie McMahon Leave Of Absence WWE

While the details remain private, many continue to wonder about the reason for Stephanie McMahon announcing her sudden departure from WWE.

One former WWE star, Lance Storm has some thoughts on a potential reason, sharing his experience working for WWE with The Ariel Helwani Show, Storm wonders if Stephanie and her real-life husband Triple H haven’t come to consider the 24/7 nature of the business as less enticing.

Speaking about their possible motives, Storm said:

“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.’”

While previously known for his in-ring work, particularly with WWE, Lance Storm has continued his wrestling career outside of the ring, currently working as a producer with IMPACT wrestling.

More details about Stephanie McMahon taking a leave of absence from her role within WWE are not known however reports suggest that Nick Khan has assumed responsibility for her team in the interim however WWE have posted a full-time job to fill in for some of Stephanie’s brand and marketing responsibilities.
