Eight of Stephanie's 25 matches came in 2000, including three singles bouts against Lita. She lost her Women's title to The Extreme Diva in August 2000.

Lita also tops the list of superstars Stephanie has faced the most in her WWE career up to this moment. They wrestled with each other seven different times in singles and tag team bouts.

In 2003, Stephanie McMahon took a long break from competition after her loss against her father at No Mercy. Her next bout came 11 years later when she defeated Vickie Guerrero in a Mud match in 2014. That same year, Stephanie also defeated Brie Bella at SummerSlam.

After four years of absence, Stephanie teamed up with her husband Triple H to face Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 34. The power couple lost the match and Stephanie has not competed again since then.

Despite sharing the ring with some of the greatest WWE female superstars, Stephanie McMahon never teamed up with any of them.

In all of Stephanie's tag team and handicap matches, she teamed up with male superstars.

Stephanie has had many tag team partners, including her brother Shane and her husband Triple H. She also teamed up with some of the biggest names in WWE history, such as Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, and Kurt Angle.

The Superstar Stephanie McMahon has teamed up with the most in her career is her husband Triple H. The power couple stood side by side in the ring five times, winning three matches and losing two.

Stephanie occasionally posts her training videos on her social media accounts and seems to be in great physical condition. She could team up with one of the current female superstars in a tag team match if she decides to return to in-ring action.

Stephanie McMahon has been involved in several family feuds throughout the past two decades in WWE. However, she has never defeated a family member.

Stephanie has teamed up with her brother Shane before but has never wrestled him. However, she faced her husband and father on several occasions. In February 2001, The Queen of Queens teamed up with William Regal to take on her father, Vince McMahon, and Trish Stratus in a tag team match that ended in no contest.

Stephanie went head-to-head with her father again at No Mercy 2003 in an I Quit match and lost.

The WWE chief brand officer also competed against her husband Triple H and Chris Jericho in a triple threat match for the WWE Undisputed Championship on Monday Night Raw in March 2002. The King of Kings hit his wife with a vicious spinebuster to pick up the victory and retain his WWE Undisputed title. Triple H's win also meant that Stephanie had to leave WWE, as the match's stipulation stated.

Despite not having the best wrestling skills, Stephanie McMahon shockingly has a pinfall over The Rock.

Stephanie McMahon claimed all her victories via pinfall except for the Mud match against Vickie Guerrero, which did not involve pinfalls as a winning method.

Among her ten career victories, she has shockingly pinned some of WWE's greatest legends, including The Rock, Trish Stratus, and Lita.

Stephanie McMahon competed against The Rock in three matches and lost two of them. Her only victory against The People's Champion came in 2001, when she teamed up with Test to take on The Rock on the September 17 episode of Monday Night RAW.

After The Rock hit the referee with a Rock Bottom following a heated verbal exchange between them, the match turned into chaos. Booker T and Shane McMahon then ran down to the ring to help Test take out The Brahma Bull, giving Stephanie the chance to pin him for the victory.

Throughout his long WWE career, The Rock was never pinned by another female Superstar.

Most WWE male superstars would not want to face Brock Lesnar, but Stephanie McMahon had to go one-on-one with The Beast Incarnate to save her job as SmackDown general manager in 2003.

On the September 9th episode of Monday Night RAW, Lesnar challenged Stephanie to a match. Vince McMahon, who was then feuding with his daughter, gave Stephanie the choice between accepting Lesnar's challenge or quitting her SmackDown general manager position. She decided to take on the former WWE Champion.

Stephanie attempted to escape from the ring early on in the match. However, The Beast chased her backstage and brought her back on his shoulders to ringside. As Lesnar stood at ringside with Stephanie on his shoulders, Kurt Angle interfered and attacked him to save the then-SmackDown general manager.
