Breast implants: Amidst speculation concerning her noticeably enlarged chest, Stephanie McMahon
admitted on August 14, 2001 during an appearance on The Opie and Anthony Show that she underwent breast augmentation
surgery the previous month--shortly before she became the fictional owner of Extreme Championship Wrestling. Her decision was provoked by seeing a sign in the audience suggesting that her breasts sagged.
Stephanie also noted her brassiere size as a D cup and that she had been advised by her doctor to regularly massage them.
Linda McMahon addressed her daughter's breast endowment months later during an interview with WWF.com, stating, "My first concerns are always with
health issues. Stephanie had thoroughly investigated the procedure, and she had answers to all the questions that I asked, and so I felt comfortable that if that was something that she wanted to do, then she
should proceed, and she had my full support."
Stephanie's augmentation was acknowledged on the August 13, 2001 episode of Raw is War as Chris Jericho mocked
her chest's sudden growth. On the TitanTron, Jericho had a video still of a less-endowed Stephanie from the prior year shown
alongside a more buxom shot taken the previous week to compare and contrast. Adding insult to injury, Jericho snarked, "It
seems like our little billionaire princess sure has grown over the last year! Well, in two specific places at least! Talk
about foreign objects--you wanna say let the bodies hit the floor? I would say let the boobies hit the floor!" Stephanie, now
concealing her chest with her arms, shrieked, "I don't know what you're talking about Jericho! You must have some kind of
When the subject was acknowledged in a semi-joking manner during a creative meeting, Stephanie said she would be happy to
go along with the angle if the other writers believed it would elevate Jericho. "She's a great sport," said one of her co-workers to the
Pro Wrestling Torch.
Stephanie stated on October 17, 2002 during an appearance on The Howard Stern Show that she underwent the procedure due to
her belief that her boobs looked like "two melted packets of butter." She also contemplated a second augmentation due
to recent weight loss making her breasts smaller.
Marriage: Stephanie began dating Triple H in 2000 during their scripted romance and the couple
became engaged on Valentine's Day in 2003. Triple H claimed during The Opie and Anthony Show in 2004 that he began
dating Stephanie after having been broken up from Chyna for some time. The couple wed on October 25, 2003 in Sleepy Hollow, New York at St. Teresa of Avila Catholic Church.
After their marriage, Stephanie assumed her husband's surname and legally changed her middle name to McMahon.
Daddy's Little Girl - Stephanie made her WWE debut as a warm youngster in 1999
Following the horrifying incident with The Undertaker, Stephanie discovered love in the form of WWE Superstar, Test. The
relationship helped put a smile back on her face, but also managed to infuriate her protective brother, Shane. Looking out for
what he believed were his sister's best interests, Shane attempted to put an end to the fiery love affair when he battled Test
in a Love Her or Leave Her Match at SummerSlam 1999. In the end, Test won the match and the right to continue his romance
The strong bond between Stephanie and Test eventually led to an engagement. The young lovers planned to wed on November 29, 1999,
but just before they could exchange vows, one Superstar made a very revealing objection. Armed with video evidence, Triple H
exposed the shocking truth that Stephanie was already a married woman.
In an attempt salvage his daughter's good name, an irate Mr. McMahon battled Triple H at Armageddon on December 11, 1999.
Unfortunately for the WWE Chairman, however, "The Game" wasn't his only opponent that night, as his daughter shocked the
sports-entertainment world when she helped Triple H defeat her father. After the match, Stephanie jumped in the arms of her
husband, proving the two had been in cahoots all along.
Stephanie and Triple H reigned supreme over WWE while daddy was away
Together, Stephanie and Triple H went on to become one of the most power-hungry couples ever. The husband-and-wife team
began a ruthless dictatorship that controlled all of WWE. Abusing their power as much as possible, they both were conviently
placed in situations that would benefit them most. As a result, it wasn't long before Triple H regained the WWE Championship,
and Stephanie claimed the Women's Championship.
On July 9, 2001, Stephanie elevated the rivalry with her father to new heights. After already breaking his heart two years
earlier, Stephanie revealed herself as the new owner of ECW, which she merged with her brother's WCW promotion to form The Alliance.
Stephanie and Shane's goal was simple: Put their father and WWE out of business forever.
The Alliance began as a very serious threat to Mr. McMahon's empire, as many of his major Superstars jumped ship to Stephanie's
camp, including "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and William Regal.
In the end, however, The Alliance was forced to disband by Team WWE at Survivor Series 2001.
With the loss, Stephanie was finally forced out of sports-entertainment, or so it seemed. In January 2002, she used a faux
pregnancy to weasel her way back into WWE, alongside her husband, Triple H. Her plan ultimately backfired, however, when
"The Game" learned of the hoax. Following the emotional rollercoaster, Triple H demanded a divorce from his conniving wife.
Stephanie reigned as SmackDown General Manager in 2002 and 2003
On July 18, 2002, Stephanie returned to prominence when she took over the reigns of SmackDown. In contrast to her
McMahon-Helmsley era villain character, Stephanie became a fan favorite who favored babyface talent. She feuded with Raw
General Manager Eric Bischoff throughout 2002, though the dueling enemies inexplicably shared a kiss at a Halloween party where
McMahon was dressed as a witch and Bischoff was disguised as her father underneath a mask. As the brand's General Manager,
she acquired some of sports-entertainment's biggest names, including Hulk Hogan, Brock Lesnar and Undertaker.
She is also credited with creating the WWE Tag Team Championship and resurrecting the prestigious United States Championship.
Meanwhile, Vince resented her daughter's attempts to stop him from pursuing an affair with Sable. Her time in office came to a painful end when she lost an "I Quit" Match to her father at No Mercy 2003.
While she refused to submit to her father, the match ultimately ended when Stephanie's mother, Linda,
couldn't bare to watch the brutality any longer. As a result, she threw in the towel, signifying the end of Stephanie's time
on the blue brand. Following the loss, Stephanie limited her public appearances in favor of assuming several executive roles
behind the scenes. On occasion, however, she reappears when the situation calls for a strong leader. One
of her more memorable returns to WWE programming took place during Triple H's
war with Randy Orton and Legacy.
Today Stephanie is responsible for all the creative development of WWE as it pertains to television and pay-per-view programming,
print, digital and social media content. In 2009, 2011 and 2012, she was recognized as one of the "Most Powerful Women in Cable"
by CableFAX magazine. She is also a proud member of the Board of Directors for both the USO Metropolitan Washington
and the social media company, Tout, Inc.
