Stephanie McMahon has provided an update on the WWE future’s of Ronda Rousey and Olympic gold medallist Gable Steveson.
During an appearance at the March of Dimes event, Stephanie McMahon provided some updates on a number of WWE related topics. These included the WWE future’s of former Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey and Olympic gold medal winner Gable Steveson, as well as the upcoming Netflix documentary on her father Vince McMahon.
In October 2020 it was announced that a new docuseries examining the life and career of Vince McMahon would be heading to Netflix. It was also confirmed that the series would be produced by Bill Simmons and directed by Chris Smith who worked on ‘Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened.’
Speaking to Adam Glyn of the Adam’s Apple YouTube channel, McMahon said that documentary would be released in 2022, although an exact date is still unknown.
“It’s scheduled to release next year in 2022. The timing is still TBD,” she said. “I am equal parts excited and really nervous. I don’t know what it’s going to say, but it’s going to capture his life and his story, which so richly deserves to be told.”
With regard to the potential return of Ronda Rousey, McMahon confirmed that there are no current plans in place. However, she is “always welcome back.” Stephanie’s comments come after Rousey recently suggested that she was no longer under contract with the company.
“There is no official update on her return, but she is always welcome to come back, as long as she stays away from me.”
Finally, Stephanie McMahon addressed the impending arrival of Gable Steveson. The Olympic gold medallist was drafted to Monday Night Raw in October, but has yet to make his in-ring debut. Stephanie confirmed that Steveson remains in school, but will hopefully join the main roster full-time when his studies are complete.
“He’s still in school. When he’s done with school, hopefully he’s going to be part of the full-time roster. We have more announcements on the NIL program that will be talked about soon.”
Steveson signed an “exclusive agreement” and the company’s first-ever NIL (Name, Image, Likeness) deal to join their roster in September.
