Former World Tag Team Champion Rene Dupree recently commented on Stephanie McMahon's resignation from WWE.

Last year, Stephanie McMahon announced that she was taking a leave from WWE. However, a few days later, she returned to the helm after her father, Vince McMahon, stepped down as Chairman and CEO. The Billion Dollar Princess later became the Chairwoman and Co-CEO amid her father's retirement from the company. However, the 46-year-old recently resigned upon her father's return as Executive Chairman.

During an episode of his Cafe de Rene podcast, Dupree addressed Stephanie's departure from the Stamford-based company.

"I think everything they do is strategic and part of a big plan, you know what I mean. The heat was on. He had to take away then waited 'till the heat died off, then went back. Maybe Stephanie just wants to be a mom and just wants to retire and she's probably sick of wrestling. Could be," he said. [1:10:42 - 1:11:07]

Former WWE Champion says Stephanie McMahon had "earned the right to retire"

Stephanie McMahon started working in her father's company as a teenager. The Queen of Queens kicked off her career as a model and receptionist before becoming Director of Creative Writing, Executive Vice President of Creative, and Chief Brand Officer, in addition to being an on-screen talent.

After spending a few months as Chairwoman and Co-CEO, Stephanie left the company a few days ago. Speaking on SHAK Wrestling, Kofi Kingston stated that The Billion Dollar Princess had earned the right to retire.

"WWE is her life. She means a lot. She does so much for the company whether a lot of it gets seen or not. She is part of the lifeblood that allows the WWE to exist. So, her presence will definitely be missed for sure. But I think she's earned the right to retire and enjoy her family life. And I am happy for her in that sense," he said. [8:27 to 8:56]
