Who Is Stephanie McMahon ? Read More About Her

Stephanie McMahon Levesque or Stephanie Marie McMahon was born September 24, 1976, is an American businesswoman and retired professional wrestler. She is the chief brand officer (CBO) of WWE and appears as an authority figure on the Raw, NXT and SmackDown brands.

She is a fourth-generation wrestling promoter as a member of the McMahon family, she has worked for WWE since she was a young girl (modeling T-shirts and other merchandise for various WWE catalogs) working her way up to receptionist, then in various front office jobs up to and including her current CBO position. She is the great-granddaughter of Roderick “Jess” McMahon, granddaughter of Vincent J. McMahon, daughter of WWE Chairman and CEO Vincent K. McMahon and retired WWE CEO and former Administrator of the Small Business Administration Linda McMahon, the younger sister of WWE part-owner/wrestler Shane McMahon, and wife of WWE executive/wrestler Paul “Triple H” Levesque.

McMahon began appearing regularly on-air for WWE (then WWF as the World Wrestling Federation) in 1999 as a part of a storyline with The Undertaker. After a brief on-screen relationship with Test, she was engaged to Triple H — whom she married both on-screen and later in real life — which resulted in The McMahon-Helmsley Faction storyline. She has held the WWF Women’s Championship once. In 2001, she was the on-screen owner of Extreme Championship Wrestling during The Invasion. The following year, she was the SmackDown General Manager, but stopped appearing regularly on television after an “I Quit” match with her father Vince McMahon.

After making only sporadic appearances for several years, McMahon began appearing regularly on Raw in 2008 as the Raw brand general manager before disappearing once again. By mid-2013, McMahon returned to regular on-air appearances in the WWE, this time under the gimmick of an unctuous, judgmental, bullying owner along with on-screen chief operating officer, her husband, Triple H. From 2013 to 2016, they acted as a power couple known as The Authority, making what were often shady decrees while claiming only to be concerned for “what’s best for business,” all the while romanticizing each other in the process with public displays of affection. The Authority later expanded into a stable, co-led by Triple H and herself.

Stephanie Marie McMahon was born on September 24, 1976, in Hartford, Connecticut to Linda and Vince McMahon. She has one brother, Shane McMahon. Soon after her birth, the family moved to Greenwich, Connecticut. There, she attended the selective Greenwich Country Day School, throughout her elementary school years. At the age of 13, McMahon appeared in World Wrestling Federation (WWF) merchandise catalogs, modeling T-shirts and hats. After graduating from Greenwich High School in 1994, she attended Boston University and in 1998 earned a degree in Communications. After graduating in 1998, she began working for the WWF full-time.

McMahon began dating Paul Levesque, better known as Triple H, in 2000 during their scripted romance. The couple were engaged on Valentine’s Day in 2003 and were married on October 25, 2003, in a Roman Catholic ceremony at St. Teresa of Avila Church in Sleepy Hollow, New York. In a radio interview with Opie and Anthony in 2004, Levesque claimed he began dating McMahon after being apart from his previous girlfriend, Joanie “Chyna” Laurer, for some time, despite Laurer’s claims his relationship with McMahon began while they were still together. After their marriage, Stephanie took her husband’s surname and legally changed her middle name to McMahon.

She and Levesque have three daughters: Aurora Rose Levesque (born 2006), Murphy Claire Levesque (born 2008), and Vaughn Evelyn Levesque (born 2010). McMahon is a Republican, who alongside her husband donated $2,700 to the presidential campaign of Chris Christie.

Stephanie and her family are of Irish-American descent, and she has said she is proud of her Irish roots. At a WWE live event in Dublin, Republic of Ireland in 2004, McMahon spoke during a promo about how her family originally came from County Clare. Stephanie’s great-grandfather, Roderick James “Jess” McMahon, was born to Irish parents who had emigrated from Galway, Republic of Ireland to New York City during the 1870s.
