Stephanie McMahon was interviewed by Marcus Vanderberg for Yahoo! Sports. Here are some excerpts:
It was brought up how professional leagues are cracking down on players accused of domestic violece. Stephanie was asked about WWE’s domestic abuse policy.
We have a zero tolerance policy for domestic abuse. Upon arrest for such misconduct, our superstars are immediately suspended and should there be a conviction, that superstar or diva would be terminated.
On WWE’s strategy to rollout advertisements on the WWE Network:
The strategy is obviously a business decision to have limited advertising on the WWE Network. We want subscribers to know that there won’t be commercial breaks during scheduled programming, so your shows won’t be interrupted. It’s going to be very limited advertising in between the shows themselves. There will also be the occasional advertising before our video on demand content, but not before every video.
She was asked about the story about women on Total Divas not being allowed to win the Divas championship:
Absolutely not. I honestly don’t even know how that rumor got started.
It was brought up to her that one of the Divas mentioned the rule in an interview:
There is no policy. I think it would be awesome to have one of the Total Divas as our champion. I think it would drive interest in the storyline. I would never say never.
There’s a lot more in the interview. She talks about competition (from TNA), more on the network, and she confirmed that WrestleMania 31 would be on the network. Click here for the full interview.
