Stephanie McMahon Levesque (born Stephanie Marie McMahon; September 24, 1976) is the daughter of Vince McMahon, owner of the WWE. She is a former performer, and now works as the company's head of Creative Writing.
Stephanie began her career in wrestling as part of her father's feud with the Undertaker, and eventually became an on-screen heel as part of the McMahon-Helmsely Era. Upon her debut, she was a modestly chubby 230 lbs. She kept her weight fluctuating between the mid 200's for close to two years but by time it was late 2000; it was well known behind the scenes, she was extremely supportive of the Chunky Athlete movement that began in WWE by Trish Stratus and Lita. Stephanie even gained weight herself to help her chances with audience approval of her screen time. Her weight kept up to her growing heel infamy as she barely bypassed 300 by time she was in full airtime by 2002. She was dealt a humiliating blow story wise on live television and disappeared for nearly five months and returned in Fall 2002, being christened the General manager of WWE SmackDown! by her father, Vince McMahon.
The unrivaled success she brought to the brand skyrocketed as she kept storyline angles fresh and became one of the most well received GMs that ever graced the show to this date. The support and popularity she was given had caught up to her physically as in her one year tenure as the GM, she managed to gain a steady influx of weight that easily exceeded over 120 lbs. By late 2003 she had lost a stipulation match to her father which made her get fired from her position. In reality, she was preparing for her wedding day.
Since then Stephanie has made sporadic appearances on RAW and SmackDown! (between 2006 and 2010) in support of her family involving storylines with her family members or husband. As of 2014, she is featured full time on almost every episode of RAW and SmackDown! aired as part of the pseudo-reboot of the McMahon-Helmsley Era, known as The Authority.
Stephanie has been a Women's Champion, the SmackDown! GM, and is currently married to wrestler HHH, with whom she has three children.
Stephanie McMahon is one of the only women in wrestling to showcase a larger upper torso than her peers. A heavy concentration of her weight is held above the waist, allowing for one of the largest bellies of all Divas to ever be on television; even rivaling Divas much larger than herself in that department, such as Trish Stratus. Stephanie's chest has always tended to showcase deep cleavage due to flirtatious blouse choices with low necklines she has regularly worn post-2002.
Throughout her entire in-ring and professional entertainment career, her weight has seemed to plateau within the high 400's and fluctuating between 475 and 500 pounds. Her on screen weight gaining has been some of the most well televised and documented gains in female wrestling history, nearly adding on 300 pounds of weight to her figure in four years alone.
As of 2017, her weight has stablized between 490-500 pounds.
