The WWE will have to make do without Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon for now with the 45-year-old announcing that she will be temporarily stepping down to attend to her family.

The daughter of WWE CEO Vince McMahon announced on Twitter, stating that she will take a leave of absence from the majority of her responsibilities in the WWE.

"As of tomorrow, I am taking a leave of absence from the majority of my responsibilities at WWE," she announced on Twitter on May 20. "WWE is a lifelong legacy for me and I look forward to returning to the company that I love after taking this time to focus on my family."

The announcement came as a surprise to her fans but continued to rally and support McMahon.

Also, it remains unclear if the decision was tied to the health of her husband, fellow WWE executive Triple H. “The Game” recently announced that he nearly died due to a health scare and announced that his wrestling career was over.

Stephanie McMahon has become a familiar figure in the WWE since 2000. She was an in-ring performer for 18 years.

In 2007, she was made EVP of Creative Writing and eventually became the Chief Brand Officer in 2013.

She married Triple H in 2003 and both have three kids – Aurora, Murphy and Vaughn.

Just recently, WWE superstar Kevin Owens gave an update on Triple H in an interview with TalkSport. He saw the former WWE champion recently, Owens said that the Cerebral Assassin looked great and thanked Triple H for his success.

“Seeing him around after a few months of not seeing when he used to be everywhere all the time, and he looked amazing, sounded amazing, it was great,” Owens stated.

“I wasn’t surprised when I met him that he was a guy who was all about growing the industry and giving people a chance. He proved my assumptions right many times over the past few years and a lot of us, a lot of us, wouldn’t be here without him,” he added.
