McMahon, along with her husband Vince McMahon founded sports entertainment company Titan Sports, Inc. (what is now WWE) where she worked as the president and later CEO from 1980 to 2009. During this time, the company grew from a small regional business in the northeast to a large multinational corporation.

As president and later CEO of the company, she initiated the company’s civic programs, Get REAL and Smackdown Your Vote. Occasionally McMahon made on-screen appearances, most notably in a wrestling “feud” with her husband that culminated at WrestleMania X-Seven.

In 2009, McMahon left WWE to run as a Republican for a seat in the United States Senate from Connecticut, but lost to Democratic Party nominee Richard Blumenthal in the general election of 2010. She was the Republican nominee for Connecticut’s other Senate seat in the 2012 race, but lost to Democratic Representative Chris Murphy.

On December 7, 2016, President-elect Donald Trump announced that he would nominate McMahon to be the Administrator of the Small Business Administration. The Senate confirmation hearing began on January 24, 2017. On February 1, 2017, her nomination was approved by the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship on an 18–1 vote and confirmed by the full Senate on February 14, 2017 by a vote of 81–19.
