Former WWE CEO Linda McMahon is expected to resign from President Donald Trump's administration. 

Per Politico's Andrew Restuccia, Eliana Johnson and Daniel Lippman, McMahon's resignation as head of the Small Business Administration could come as early as Friday. 

It's unclear what McMahon's future plans are, though Politico noted she's expected to go back into the private sector and serve as a fundraiser for Trump's 2020 re-election campaign.

McMahon has served as head of the Small Business Administration since Feb. 2017 when the United States Senate confirmed her nomination. 

Along with her husband Vince McMahon, Linda was one of the key figures in WWE's rise to become one of the biggest sports or entertainment organizations in the world. She spent 12 years as CEO of the company from May 1997 to September 2009. 

McMahon resigned from WWE to begin her campaign for a seat in the Senate from Connecticut. She received the Republican nomination in 2010 and 2012, losing the general election both times.
