    Steph recently dropped the “Helmsley” part of her last name & has been hanging around with John Cena a ton lately…. #JustSayin’

  2. Antonio says:

    Probably because “Helmsley” was never in her name to begin with because it isn’t her real married name.

  3. StunningSteve says:

    Who is Helmsely? I think you mean Levesque. Oh, and hashtags only work on Twitter for tracking. People using hashtags everywhere gets on my ever loving nerves.

    @Stunning Steve, Sherman Helmsley. #FishDontFryInTheKitchen

  5. Kerry says:

    Actually, Stephanie legally changed her name by dropping her middle name, which is/was Marie to Stephanie McMahon Levesque.

    @Common Cents: Haha. It all makes sense now.
