Stephanie McMahon recently appeared on the Barstool Sports Podcast with hosts Dan "Big Cat" Katz and Alex Rodriguez.
Stephanie has been out of the WWE TV storylines for a few months but she stays busy with her duties as WWE's Chief Brand Officer. She talked about how others in the business world are sometimes confused when they meet because of her on-screen character.
"I do find though, now when I meet other business people and they find out that I'm also a character on the show, it is quite confusing to them, especially when I then explain I am the villain playing the boss's daughter putting profits before people, and all of that good stuff," she said.
Stephanie was also asked about a rumor on Vince McMahon that has made the rounds for years. Former WWE writers, former WWE Superstars, and even Paul Heyman have talked in interviews about Vince's reaction to people sneezing around him. The story says the WWE Chairman hates it when people sneeze because it's just something he can't have control over. Stephanie confirmed this rumor, as seen with this exchange that she had with Big Cat during the podcast:
Big Cat: Have you ever sneezed around your father?
Stephanie: Totally. Yes.
Big Cat: Does he hate you for it?
Stephanie: He doesn't hate me for it but it's always with like a 'grrr,' a grimace. But on the flip side I've been around when he has sneezed.
Big Cat: That's got to be embarrassing for him.
Stephanie: A little bit that he can't control. Well, it's just because he doesn't like anything he can't control, and the fact that he can't control the sneeze is very... it makes him upset.
