“The Authority” is a villain group in storylines for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), headed by Stephanie McMahon and husband Triple H. Stephanie is the Chief Brand Officer behind the scenes, while Triple H is the Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events, and Creative. On air, they claim to want what is “best for business,” and that usually involves injustices aimed at the company’s “face” talent (aka “good guys”). “The Authority” was formed in August 2013 and remains active on both WWE Raw and WWE SmackDown weekly programming as well as special events/pay-per-views. Other members of “The Authority” have included wrestlers Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, Kane, and Big Show.
