Stephanie Mcmahon Net Worth: How Much Does Stephanie Own of WWE?
Stephanie McMahon is an American corporate executive and former World Wrestling Entertainment valet and wrestler. Stephanie has a net worth of $150 million as of this writing. That is her combined net worth with her husband since 2003, wrestler/WWE Executive Vice President Triple H, though Stephanie is primarily responsible for the couple’s riches due to her interests in WWE common stock.
Stephanie McMahon was born on September 24, 1976, in Hartford, Connecticut. She is a descendant of the illustrious McMahon wrestling dynasty. Vince McMahon, her father, is the WWE’s founder, chairman, and CEO. Stephanie McMahon began modeling for the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) catalogs when she was 13 years old. She attended Boston University and graduated in 1998 with a degree in communications.

She is married to Paul “Triple H” Levesque, a WWE wrestler and executive. They started dating in 2000, throughout their manufactured romance. They were engaged on Valentine’s Day 2003 and married in Sleepy Hollow, New York, in October 2003. Stephanie adopted her husband’s surname and formally changed her middle name to McMahon following their marriage. Aurora Rose Levesque (born 2006), Murphy Claire Levesque (born 2008), and Vaughn Evelyn Levesque (born 2010) are the couple’s offspring.
McMahon and her husband are Republicans who contributed $2,700 to Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie’s campaign.
Professional Wrestling Career
McMahon made her WWF debut in 1999 as Vince McMahon’s innocent and nice daughter during a storyline featuring Vince and The Undertaker. Their debut storyline saw The Undertaker chasing and abducting Stephanie after April Backlash until she was saved by Stone Cold Steve Austin.
She subsequently established an on-screen romance with wrestler Test, which resulted in a long-running on-screen conflict with her only sibling Shane McMahon. She and Test were engaged during an in-ring ceremony, but Triple H revealed during the ceremony that he had drugged McMahon and whisked her away to Vegas, where they wedded in a drive-through ceremony. McMahon successfully defended her WWF Women’s championship title for the first time in 2000.
She had a two-year hiatus from the WWF before returning in 2002 as general manager of Smackdown. Stephanie McMahon vanished from WWF television for two years after losing a match to her mother Linda McMahon.
Stephanie appeared in the WWF on a sporadic basis from 2005 to 2007, first as a villain in October 2005 at Raw Homecoming, where she faced Stone Cold Steve Austin. McMahon also returned to “Raw” in March 2006, clearly pregnant. In April 2007, she returned to a backstage segment at WrestleMania 23 to visit her father before his Battle of the Billionaires bout.
McMahon publicly announced her father had an illegitimate kid on the WWE roster after his father returned to “Raw” after faking his death. She returned to Raw regularly in 2008 before disappearing once more. By mid-2013, she had returned to regular on-air appearances in the WWE, this time portraying her husband Triple H as a bullying owner.

From 2013 until 2016, the two operated as The Authority, a power couple. Stephanie was appointed commissioner of the Raw brand by Vince McMahon in 2016. On the October 30, 2017, edition of Raw, she confronted Raw General Manager Kurt Angle. McMahon quickly began feuding with Ronda Rousey following her contract, culminating in the tag-team battle at WrestleMania 34 between Rousey and Kurt Angle and her husband Triple H.
McMahon competed in her first bout since SummerSlam 2014 and her first WrestleMania match. When she tapped out to Rousey, her squad was defeated. Following this setback, she resumed only intermittent television appearances.

Stephanie McMahon’s WWE nickname is “The Billionaire Princess,” and she was the Women’s Champion and SmackDown General Manager throughout her wrestling career. Linda McMahon, her mother, retired from the WWE to take a position as Administrator of the Small Business Administration.
