The Undertaker Breaks Silence On Stephanie McMahon’s New Role

the undertaker arms out

With Stephanie McMahon recently taking over as interim CEO of WWE, The Undertaker has now given his take on the appointment.

On the 15th of June, The Wall Street Journal reported that Vince McMahon’s own company board is investigating a $3 million payment said to have been made by him to a former employee of the company in return for them signing a non-disclosure agreement.

The employee was hired by the company as a paralegal in 2019 with the report saying an anonymous email was sent to WWE’s board on March 30th, 2022 by a friend of the employee in question which alleged that the employee’s salary was doubled from $100,000 to $200,000 after beginning an intimate relationship with the WWE Chairman.

This has led to McMahon stepping down as WWE Chairman and CEO for the time being, with Stephanie McMahon replacing her father in those positions on an interim basis.

Speaking to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, WWE Hall Of Famer The Undertaker has stated how he thinks the appointment of Stephanie McMahon is exactly what the company needs at this time.

Stephanie is incredible, and she’s going to show that in this new role. She is level-headed, she sees the whole picture. Her steady, calm hand is exactly what is needed. There’s not a selfish bone in her body, but she’s all about business. She’s the right person for the job. I have 100% confidence about what Stephanie McMahon will do for the company.

It has also been reported recently that Triple H has also returned to his backstage role at the company, taking the helm once again of NXT 2.0.
