The daughter of Vince McMahon continues to speak out.

Stephanie McMahon currently serves the commissioner for Monday Night Raw.

If you recall, when WWE started the Draft last July, McMahon picked WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley to be the General Manager of Raw while SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon chose former WWE Champion Daniel Bryan to be the General Manager of SmackDown.

Foley was later replaced as the GM of the Raw brand earlier this year by WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle.

By looking back at the history books, various promoters who have been in the professional wrestling business has always known a key thing, which is to make fans pay to see the matches that they desperately want to see.

You give away angles and build up matches for free in order to set up a big match that will force the fans to pay to see. Whether that be in person at an event or pay via PPV (pay-per-view).

It’s a smart thing to do. However, as of late WWE has been giving away big matches or dream matches on free television on Monday Night Raw or SmackDown Live. Matches like John Cena vs. Braun Strowman, Roman Reigns vs. Sheamus or the planned Samoa Joe vs. Cena matches.

Saving huge matches for WrestleMania is not the norm for the sports entertainment company like it has been in the past. Thus, giving away big matches keeps the fans tuned into their television shows.

In April, McMahon was written out of the storyline after being pushed accidentally through a table at WrestleMania 33 by Triple H. She did not appear on WWE TV for many months.

However, after Kevin Owens assaulted her father on the 12 September edition of SmackDown Live, she returned to help her dad.

Since then, she had been a main character on the sports entertainment company’s flagship show, Monday Night Raw.

During a recent interview with Bloomberg, McMahon commented on the potential sale of the WWE. Here is what she had to say:

“We’ve certainly thought about it. It would be foolish not to.”

McMahon also spoke about the Women’s Evolution in the sports entertainment company and on their television programs.

“I never felt great about the way we portrayed our women. It was something that I spoke up against for quite some time. But it took me a while to have a stronger voice in the room. Ultimately, the voice that needed to be heard was our fan base.”
