"WWE is in such a strong position that I have decided to return to my leave and take it one step further with my official resignation. I look forward to cheering on WWE from the other side of the business, where I started when I was a little kid, as a pure fan."

"I'd like to express my full support for Stephanie's personal decision. I'll forever be grateful that she offered to step in during my absence and I'm truly proud of the job she did co-leading WWE," said Vince McMahon

"Stephanie has always been the ultimate ambassador for our company, and her decades of contributions have left an immeasurable impact on our brand."
