WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon is taking a leave of absence from the company, she announced Thursday.

McMahon did not specify the reason for her leave of absence but indicated she planned to return to WWE at some point.

"As of tomorrow, I am taking a leave of absence from the majority of my responsibilities at WWE," she wrote on Twitter. "WWE is a lifelong legacy for me and I look forward to returning to the company that I love after taking this time to focus on my family."

We wish McMahon the best as she takes some time away.
