While Marissa has been involved with the WWE for a number of years, it is her husband, Shane McMahon who is best known for his work with the sport. Shane is a minority shareholder with the WWE and is a fourth-generation wrestling promoter of the McMahon family. He began his career at just 15, working in the WWE warehouse. Since then, Shane has climbed through the ranks with the sport and has served as a referee, producer, announcer, and wrestler on-screen. He also worked as the WWE’s Executive Vice President of Global Media behind the scenes. And while much of what McMahon has done has been included in the media, the same cannot be said of his wife, Marissa Mazzola McMahon. So, for this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Marissa McMahon.
Marissa Mazzola was born on the 4th of July 1973 in New York. Born in New York, Marissa’s family moved to Greenwich, Connecticut, when she was young. As a young kid, Marissa attended a private all-girls school. Following her matriculation, Marissa attended Boston University and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Arts degree.
Following her graduation from Boston University, Marissa started working in public relations under Dan Klores. From 1999 to 2000, Marissa started working on WWF LiveWire with Michael Coulthard. The show aired on USA Network before moving to TNN. In the time that followed, Marissa increased her role with the WWF and appeared in several of its programs. She was featured on both Raw and Smackdowns and was also a part of WWF Divas – Postcard from the Caribbean. After serving as the Director of public relations for WWE for a brief amount of time, Marissa guest-starred as a bird merchant in The Scorpion King (2002). The movie was produced by the WWE network and marked Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s first hit role in Hollywood.
After working on WWE and WWF for a while, Marissa decided to change things up and started pursuing other interests. In 2005, Marissa laid the groundwork for Kamala Films. The production house released a short film, Quitters, on June 5, 2005, as its first release. Marissa’s first feature film came two years later when Kamala Films released the movie, Anamorph. In 2012, Marissa worked as the executive producer for the movie, What Maisie Knew. The movie opened to worldwide acclaim and while Marissa has taken on fewer roles since then, she is working on two new projects, A Private War and An Affair.
Marissa McMahon and Shane McMahon have known each other almost all their lives. The pair first met during their high school years and began dating soon after. They tied the knot on the 14th of September 1996, following years of dating. In their time together, the pair have given birth to three children.
