Stephanie McMahon has another accolade to add to her list as she has been inducted into the International Sports Hall Of Fame.
The ISHOF was established in 2012 as a way to recognise excellence and achievement throughout the sporting world. In receiving her induction to the Class Of 2021, Stephanie McMahon becomes the first female executive to be inducted into the International Sports Hall Of Fame.
McMahon took to social media to comment on her induction, saying that she was both “humbled and honoured” by it:
“Humbled & honored to be the 1st female executive inducted into the International Sports Hall of Fame with such a prestigious class. The key messages from all were passion, love, hard work, intention, & believing in yourself – #wordstoliveby. #ISHOF”

Earlier in October Forbes listed Stephanie McMahon as the second most influential Chief Marketing Officer in the world in their ‘Top 50 World’s Most Influential CMOs’ list for the second year running.
McMahon beat out executives from the likes of Lego, Google, Microsoft, and more to come out second place on the list. She was beaten for the top position by Bozoma Saint John, the Chief Marketing Officer at streaming giant Netflix.
Forbes wrote of McMahon’s success:
“While she may be the only CMO with “professional wrestler” on her résumé, Stephanie McMahon is an influential marketer far beyond the WWE ring. Along with overseeing the creation of the bio-secure ThunderDome during the Covid-19 crisis, McMahon also helped drive fan engagement for live and streaming matches, navigated the return to in-person events in July and built one of the largest TikTok followings for a sports property.”
“McMahon has also led cross-company collaborations. To help Netflix promote its Army of the Dead show, WWE had zombies circle the ring and become part of the show. And earlier this month, the WWE partnered with Connor’s Cure and The V Foundation to raise money for fighting pediatric cancer. She’s also helped the Ad Council with its vaccine marketing including PSAs for people to learn more about their options for getting vaccinated.”
