Real Reason WWE Chose Stephanie McMahon As Vince McMahon’s Interim Replacement? WWE

A possible reason for Stephanie McMahon being chosen to be Vince McMahon’s interim replacement has reportedly been revealed.

Following recent allegations made against Vince McMahon, WWE and its Board of Directors shared a statement announcing that Stephanie McMahon has been named the interim CEO and Chairwoman of WWE, with Vince McMahon voluntarily stepping down.

CNBC’s Alex Sherman now reports that a source told him that Stephanie receiving Vince’s responsibilities indicates that Vince has no intention of stepping down.

Sherman tweeted:

“I’m also told that elevating Stephanie to CEO, after she just left to focus on family, is an optics play to signal Vince McMahon has no intention of stepping down.”

Sherman elaborated further on, noting:

“The CEO role is staying in the family. McMahon’s daughter, Stephanie McMahon, will take over as interim chairwoman and CEO. Stephanie McMahon said in May that she was pulling back from the bulk of her duties as a WWE executive to spend more time with her family. The appointment is a signal that the power structure wouldn’t change even as Vince McMahon steps back, according to the person familiar with the matter.”

WWE has announced that Vince McMahon will appear on tonight’s episode of SmackDown. Read more on this right here.
