September 16, 2014 marked the five year anniversary of Linda McMahon's resignation as WWE's Chief Executive Officer. It was then McMahon announced she would be leaving the company to run as a Republican candidate for the United States Senate. Here was the corporate release from that day in 2009:

STAMFORD, CT, September 16, 2009 –World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. today announced that Linda McMahon has stepped down as Chief Executive Officer after announcing her candidacy for the United States Senate, representing the state of Connecticut. Vince McMahon assumes the duties of Chief Executive Officer in addition to his current position as WWE® Chairman. McMahon will be supported by the seasoned executive management team already in place and led by Chief Operating Officer and board member, Donna Goldsmith.

Two elections and $100 million later, Linda McMahon is not a member of the United States Senate but she's not a WWE executive either.

Since November 2012, McMahon has stayed active both on the political scene and in business. She's joined APCO Worldwide as a member of the firm’s International Advisory Council (IAC) and served as an advisor to Connecticut Republican party chairman Jerry Labriola Jr. Last year, she was in attendance at Monday Night Raw. In 2014, she inductedThe Ultimate Warrior into the WWE Hall of Fame.

TIME has a new feature article on Linda McMahon during the Real Simple/TIME Women & Success Panel in New York City. There, she discussed how she measures success:

My measure of success is how many jobs and lives we have affected internally, within the company… and having an opportunity to mentor some of the young people who have come along.
The first success was about building the company. And then once you’ve built the company, how do you continue to do that? So to have success today is to look around and see that we’re continuing to put smiles on people’s faces.
