On this date in WWE history: Stephanie McMahon is born

Steph

A "Billion Dollar Princess" came into the world on this date in history (Sept. 24, 1976) when Linda McMahon, wife of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) owner and Chairman of the Board Vince McMahon, gave birth to their daughter, Stephanie.

Her entire life, not unlike her father's, has been consumed by the pro wrestling business. She was first introduced in her teens in catalogs as a model for merchandise and would make her way on screen in 1999 for the infamous abduction angle with Undertaker and the Ministry of Darkness.

"Where to, Stephanie?"

She would go on to bigger and better things, marrying Triple H both on-screen and, later, in real life, leading to The McMahon-Helmsley Era. She dominated television alongside her husband during this time, much to the annoyance of fans all over the world. The company was making money hand over fist, though, so all was well.

Once the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) bought out World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) to run the invasion angle in 2001, she was inserted as the leader of the latter. Once that crashed and burned, she became General Manager of Smackdown for a while before disappearing to work behind the scenes, where she remains to this day.

The Rock sings Stephanie happy birthday after the jump.
