Stephanie McMahon discusses taking over for her father, WrestleMania in Chicago, & more

Stephanie McMahon spoke with ChicagoNow.com on Monday to promote Monday Night Raw and the partnership with Susan G. Komen. Here are some highlights from the interview:

Taking over for her father:

I wouldn’t say I am taking over for my Dad. My husband and I are involved in a fun storyline where we represent the “evil owners”. Playing the bad guy is so much fun for me and I’m not sure why. But it’s very impactful when I do the community service such as the anti-bully campaign. I have the opportunity to tell these kids about entertainment versus reality. Are whole goal is to give these kids tools to stand up to bullying.

It’s funny when I get to show footage during a speaking engagement such as Hijack Raw that happened in Chicago. I will often to show footage that features my character in villainous light and people laugh. The speech I’m giving is in my executive voice and me as a person. Seeing me in character is a complete opposite take of who I am outside of the ring. It’s fun and enjoyable and at the end of the day that’s what it’s all about.

On possibly doing WrestleMania in Chicago again:

I would say we would love to have that happen again. Like I said before these fans are the most energetic, engaged and passionate fans and Chicago is a huge part of the WWE history.

Nothing can be announced officially, but we would love to come back for another WrestleMania.
