Stephanie McMahon has been absent from the WWE scenario since January 2023. Soon after she stepped down from her post as the co-CEO and Chairwoman of the Board of WWE, she went through ankle surgery. That was the last time that the WWE Universe heard from her.

A user on X took to the platform to claim that Stephanie and HHH are now separated. Sharing a picture, he wrote, “Stephanie McMahon a single woman????” The fans, too, failed to absorb the fact that the power couple at WWE had or are planning to part ways.
Are Stephanie McMahon and Triple H actually seeking divorce?
Stephanie McMahon and Triple H share one of the strongest bonds among all the couples in WWE. Had there been any problem with respect to their relationship, the duo is sure to have made a public statement on the matter. “The couple remain separated but have not officially divorced as the couple continues to navigate these uncharted waters,” wrote Slice Wrestling in their report.
It additionally told the readers that the reason for their separation was the “strain and the power struggle within WWE.” However, the two have already had their hands fixed on different areas while they were both in the company. In her last message as a WWE employee, Stephanie didn’t mention anything that hinted at a possible rift between the couple and she took her leave in a very cordial manner.

Slice Wrestling also claims that the “return of Vince McMahon also caused a rift within the marriage.” Had this been the case, the couple wouldn’t have ever gotten together in the first place. Vince McMahon and Triple H had been working together for a long time and the massive success of WWE comes from the efforts that the two put in together.
With this being said, the rumors and the claims seem to be absolutely vague. However, the final verdict on the matter can be given by Stephanie McMahon and HHH themselves.

A year later, Stephanie and HHH became parents for the third time as they welcomed their third daughter, whom they named Vaughn Evelyn. The two have had multiple ups and downs in their relationship, but their love for each other keeps them together, making them the power couple of WWE.
