Stephanie McMahon talks about delaying her memoir, Vince McMahon receiving death threats, more



Stephanie McMahon was interviewed while at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit in Laguna Niguel, California this past week. During the interview, she was asked about her father, Vince McMahon, receiving death threats when he was building the WWE decades ago. McMahon noted that Vince was invading several territories and getting better TV coverage. He believed that he had a better product but the other promotions didn’t like it. Vince told her a story about a threat from a notorious gangster and being in an old hotel with this big oversized man with a very unattractive face. Stephanie claimed that Vince stood up for himself after the man threatened his life.

McMahon’s memoir has been pushed back until 2020. Now, the release date for the book on August 25th, 2020 instead of the original release date in October. The title of her memoir is "UNREAL: Inside the Crazy, Fun Show Business World of WWE." When asked about her memoir, she stated that she is “personally reassessing.” Originally it was supposed to be a memoir, but she decided to make it bigger and better because she wants to tell her family’s story.

McMahon also talked about the appeal of pro wrestling and more. You can read the full interview here.
