Erika Bradbury, Editorial Director of PR NEWS, released the following statement regarding all the companies who contributed.

“In the midst of a global pandemic and social unrest, corporate social responsibility has never been more important. It’s become even clearer this year that it’s not enough to simply tweet a message of support. Both internal and external stakeholders expect, if not encourage, companies to walk the talk and prove their statements in actions.”

McMahon could not help but share her joy on Twitter about WWE receiving the award. She also spoke about the mission WWE has always had.

It is no secret that WWE sacked multiple staff and close to 20 superstars in April because of COVID budget cuts. According to rumors, WWE sacked many superstars so that Vince McMahon wouldn’t have to compromise on his profit margin. Jake Hager left the company many years ago and wasn’t one superstar to face the sack in April. However, his frustration is still understandable as he himself was a WWE superstar and many of the released superstars are friends with him.

While Stephanie is celebrating the accolade of the company, she has an accolade of her own personal achievement.
