Stephanie McMahon to narrate episode of ESPN’s “Special Olympics: 50 Game Changers”
WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon has been tapped to narrate a new episode of ESPN’s “Special Olympics: 50 Game Changers,” airing during tomorrow’s SportsCenter from 8-10 a.m. ET.
The series is a part of the ongoing initiative celebrating the 50-year anniversary of the International Special Olympics Games that were first held on July 20, 1968, in Chicago. In commemorating the milestone, ESPN and Special Olympics launched an expansive weekly series back in July, comprised of 50 film shorts that tell the stories of the game changing people and moments that have helped drive and shape the Special Olympics movement by, from and for people with intellectual disabilities.
As each week welcomes the release of a brand new short, Stephanie McMahon is set to voice the latest episode.

This exciting news comes as WWE continues a longstanding partnership with Special Olympics, having served as the Founding Partner of the 2014 USA Games, Promotional Partner of the 2015 World Games in Los Angeles and Promotional Partner of the 2018 USA Games, which were held in Seattle. In addition, WWE will also partner with the Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019, which will be held in the United Arab Emirates from March 14 to March 21.
