Stephanie McMahon is one of the most notable female figures in professional wrestling. There’s an argument to be made whether it’s deserving or not, but it’s hard to deny her impact on the landscape of pro wrestling. She has been involved in WWE in an on-screen capacity for more than 20 years and has contributed plenty in an administrative role, whether through her early years as an account executive or in her current role as chief brand officer.Although she was never talented in the ring, she has been part of some memorable matches, including the tag team match pitting her and Triple H against Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 34. She has also maintained incredible heel heat for the greater part of her career while concurrently being somewhat respected for her efforts behind the scenes as well as her philanthropy. What else is there to know about Stephanie McMahon?

Stephanie McMahon Hottest Top 16 Rare pictures and video online BIO

16Former Women’s Champion

Most fans, especially those younger than 20, might not even remember Stephanie as much of a wrestler let alone a Women’s Champion. Consider the champions of the last few years – Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Asuka, and Ronda Rousey – and compare their athletic abilities to Vince McMahon’s daughter. It’s a no contest. Nonetheless, Stephanie actually won the Women’s Championship from Jacqueline on SmackDown! in March 2000 and held the title for almost five months.

15Two-Time PWI Feud Of The Year

Despite her relative inabilities between the ropes, Stephanie’s character work has made her a valuable figure to WWE. In fact, she is a two-time recipient of the Pro Wrestling Insider (PWI) Feud of the Year Award. She first won the award in 2002 for her feud with Eric Bischoff in their respective roles as SmackDown! and Raw general managers. She won it again in 2013 as part of The Authority vs. Daniel Bryan.

14Two-Time PWI Most Hated Wrestler Of The Year

The accolades don’t stop there. Stephanie is also a two-time winner of PWI’s Most Hated Wrestler of the Year, which is actually quite the accomplishment even if it doesn’t sound like it. She won the award in back-to-back years with The Authority and Triple H in 2013 and 2014. The hate hasn’t gone away.

13Struggled With Junk Food

These days, Stephanie is known for intense workout schedule and commitment to fitness and healthy eating, but that wasn’t always the case. In the past, she admitted to having horrible eating habits during her youth and into her 20s, when she first began appearing on screen in WWE. Her parents were away a lot, so she often resorted to eating what was easiest.

12Attended Prestigious Day School

Given who her father is, it’s no surprise that Stephanie lived a privileged lifestyle growing up. When her family relocated from Hartford to Greenwich, Connecticut, Stephanie was enrolled in the Greenwich Country Day School. Other notable alumni of this prestigious school include author and sports personality Bill Simmons, actress Bryce Dallas Howard, and former US President George H.W. Bush.

11Close With Andre The Giant

Speaking to her privilege growing up, Stephanie was afforded with the opportunity to be close to a lot of professional wrestlers. While most kids could only dream of being best friends with Andre The Giant, Stephanie actually lived it. He would often carry her around on his shoulders and, not surprisingly, he was her favorite wrestler.

10WWE Merchandise Catalog Model

Stephanie didn’t immediately jump right into an on-screen role in WWE. She had to work her way up to where she is and that began with her first job as a merchandise model in WWE catalogs. She typically modeled hats and T-shirts. Interestingly enough, there was no mention that she was the boss’ daughter.

9Degree In Communications

As mentioned, Stephanie may have been privileged, but she was never handed anything without having to work hard. To that end, she attended Boston University after graduating from Greenwich High School and earned a bachelor’s degree in communications. She didn’t begin appearing on screen until she completed college. She has since earned an honorary doctorate in business administration from Robert Morris University.

8On-Screen Role Suggested By Vince Russo

Believe it or not, it wasn’t even Vince who suggested Stephanie be used in an on-screen role. We owe that to Vince Russo. The former writer and right-hand man of Vince McMahon for a period during the 1990s is credited with a lot of good and bad ideas – this one can be viewed either way depending on who you ask.

7Kissed Eric Bischoff And Kurt Angle

Stephanie kayfabe dated Test before kayfabe – and then real life – dating Triple H. She has been with The Game for the majority of her time with WWE and one might think that would keep her off-limits from others in on-screen romantic roles, but that hasn’t been the case. She had a romantic angle with Kurt Angle in 2003 and was even kissed by Eric Bischoff at the end of an episode of SmackDown! around that time.

6Stuart Scott ENSPIRE Award Winner

Stuart Scott is a former ESPN personality who passed away in 2015 following a lengthy battle with appendiceal cancer. Regarded for his philanthropy, ESPN created the ENSPIRE Award in his honor. It has been awarded to Robert Kraft, Billie Jean King, David Robinson, and Pete Carroll, among others. Stephanie was honored with the award in 2017.

5Created Connor’s Cure

Stephanie earned the Stuart Scott ENSPIRE Award primarily for her work with Connor’s Cure, which she actually launched alongside Triple H after a meeting with the now-deceased 8-year-old superfan Connor Michalek. The nonprofit has raised millions in support of cancer research and care. Stephanie is also involved in WWE philanthropy through Make-A-Wish, Special Olympics, and Susan G. Komen, among others.

4Appeared On The Weakest Link

The Weakest Link was a popular trivia show that followed the popularity of these types of show in the early 2000s. It’s host Anne Robinson famously told the losers, “You are the weakest link. Goodbye.” It lasted only a few years, but was quite popular. Stephanie was on an all-WWE episode of the show in 2001 and fell victim to a light roasting from Robinson.

3Has An Intense Daily Schedule

Stephanie has clearly gotten over any eating issues she had growing up and, even at 43 years old with three young girls, is in the best shape of her life. She achieves this by working out after putting the girls to bed. This usually means a 1 a.m. bedtime followed by a 5 a.m. wake-up to get her daughters ready for school. She’s then busy all day and only stops to eat. Like father, like daughter.

2Compared 9/11 To WWE Steroid Scandal

Stephanie is well-versed in public speaking now and, as WWE’s chief brand officer, knows not to say anything that might be viewed as controversial. Given her experience in this regard, she would obviously like a do-over in her comments comparing the tragic events of 9/11 to the WWE steroid scandal in the early 1990s. What’s worse and even more cringe-inducing is that these comments weren’t taken out of context – they were delivered in front of a camera as part of WWE programming.

1Turned Down Storyline With Dad

Fortunately, Stephanie had enough sense to turn down some things back in the early 2000s. Her father is known for his crazy storylines involving romance – look no further than Bobby Lashley and Lana – but his ill-conceived notion while Stephanie was pregnant with her first daughter was a bit much. According to Bruce Prichard, Vince suggested taking advantage of her pregnancy in a storyline capacity by having it revealed that he – or Shane – was the father. At the very least, that would have made the Katie Vick angle less memorable.
