As it was noted earlier, Stephanie McMahon announced that she would be stepping away from 'most' of her responsibilities at WWE so she can focus on her family.

The news is a shock to wrestling fans because she has been so engrained with the company for decades and the only time we can recall when she has taken any significant time off was when she gave birth and when she got married to Paul "Triple H" Levesque. Aside from those important milestones, Stephanie has been working in the trenches alongside her father and she has rarely taken time off.

PWInsider is reporting that it appears as if only the people in her "most inner circle" had any idea that she would be making this announcement and many people in the company are said to be "shocked and taken aback" by the news.

It was also noted that many in the company have been seeking to find out what led to her decision. Stephanie's husband Triple H has stepped back from most of his duties after his heart issues last year that almost claimed his life.
