Stephanie McMahon (WWE) is getting Replaced

WWE's longstanding Chief Brand Officer, Stephanie McMahon, announced an indefinite leave of absence from the promotion last week - and the company isn't hanging around when it comes to filling her role.

Although WWE President and Chief Revenue Officer Nick Khan have been fulfilling several of McMahon's responsibilities in her absence, the promotion is now actively recruiting for a Director of Brand and Marketing.

While nothing has been stated publically, McMahon's leave of absence is believed to be a private, family-driven matter.

In this latest report, Johnson notes that those who have asked about McMahon's leave of absence have been told that she will be taking an extended period away from the promotion to focus on her family.

Stephanie's husband, Triple H, suffered severe heart failure last summer and has only recently returned to work with the promotion - albeit in an altered role.

Further details on this private matter between Stephanie and her family are understandably being kept close to the vest in WWE.
