Stephanie McMahon, Chief Brand Officer of WWE, recently Bill Simmons Podcast We’ll hype the pay-per-view of WrestleMania 37 this weekend and the name she believes to be the company’s current top star. McMahon also revealed that former female champion Becky Lynch told a story in the maternity ward while she was about to give birth. The highlights are as follows.
Who are the top stars of the company now?
I think the Romans are certainly one of them, but our women cannot be underestimated. You have Sasha Banks. Drew McIntyre is also on his way. Bobby Lashley is actually starting to appear. It’s not just one person. This is part of all the diversification of platforms, content, and different ways in which you can interact and engage with different influencers and talents. One thing about WWE is that there is someone for everyone. In storytelling, relevance is very important so that you can see yourself in the story or you can put yourself in the story.
Becky Lynch says he proposed the idea of being attacked in an obstetrics ward.
Well, I think it’s a kind of simultaneous. That is the reality. This is a physical business. She was pregnant and couldn’t keep up the competition, but of course she is very happy. Funny, I kept talking to Becky throughout her pregnancy, and then she was actually throwing someone jumping her in the maternity ward. [Maternity Ward match], It’s coming. Part 2 of the evolution of women (McMahon laughs).
About the rebound of the women’s sector after Becky Lynch’s absence:
It’s the same with any star. If you suddenly lose it while making a star, it will take some time to get it back, but the women’s department is back and it’s really going up.
How Sasha and Bailey Promoted WWE’s Women’s Division Throughout the Pandemic Era:
I always knew that Sasha could be at the top. She just has that IT factor. It’s just shining, but it’s not my decision in the end. Indeed, Sasha is very excited to reach this moment. During the pandemic, you’ve actually heard fans believe that they actually brought the story of Bailey and Sasha during the pandemic. I am very grateful to each of them for doing so.
How they keep their eyes on the spiritual sacrifices their talents take:
It’s something we’re always watching. Vince has this analogy, a hard worker, and when you have a poorhouse, you have to be the one who pulls them back because you are left to their own equipment, they put themselves on the ground I will hit you. But again, these talents don’t want to lose their position in the story, so once they finally get there and become part of this big story, they never want to lose their position. So there’s always a balance between what’s right for the performers, trying to do what they want, and trying to continue storytelling and everything else. So whether you’re covering a lot of live events between TVs or writing someone from the story, Sasha Banks took about four to six months off. She was in a really bad place mentally, not just a physical sacrifice. It is also a spiritual sacrifice. When you are on the road, and you are always working very hard. It’s really hard.
