Tonight was the 2nd edition of the show and Chris Jericho’s guest was none other than Stephanie McMahon herself. In this in depth one on one conversation many topics were covered. Everything from how Stephanie got started in the business, her relationship with her husband Triple H, her favorite moments in her career, her feud with Jericho, her infamous slap, the segment with Ronda Rousey at mania and so much more.
While watching this interview you can’t help but love Stephanie. She truly is an incredible woman with a big heart and an undying love for this business. Even though Stephanie portrays a heel on television that couldn’t be further from the truth. Stephanie however says playing a heel is important especially when she gets what’s coming to her because it shows the WWE universe to stand up to the bully. She talked about what an impact Be a Star has had and how much she wishes it was around in the early days.
Stephanie admits that she loves being a “Bitch” on television and the boos she receives is the greatest feeling. Boos are like a standing ovation to heels and she absolutely loves it.
On working with Ronda Rousey.
Stephanie said that from the moment she slapped The Rock and heard the crowd chatting for Ronda she knew the moment was going to be good. She said to work with someone as empowering as Ronda was incredible. She says what she loves about Ronda is that she isn’t afraid to be herself and she hopes that her daughters can learn to be like her.
She also went on to say that Ronda proves that women can main event and she hopes to one day do the same with the WWE divas. She continued to say she wants to work with Ronda again but only time will tell and she was proud of that mania moment.
Stephanie spoke on that it was trending on Twitter for 3 days and that’s because the fans wanted to be heard. She went on to say that the moment was so important that Vince McMahon himself had to respond. Stephanie went on to say that she continues to push #GiveDivasAchance everyday and hopes that one day they can get a true chance to prove themselves.
