Former World Wrestling Entertainment boss Linda McMahon met Wednesday with President-elect Donald Trump to talk about entrepreneurship, job creation and the Small Business Administration, she said.

After leaving WWE, Mrs. McMahon twice ran unsuccessfully for U.S. Senate in Connecticut. She also founded Women’s Leadership Live to boost women in the business world.

“The meeting went great. It was really nice to be up, and I was honored to be asked to come in. Anytime I think the president-elect of the United States asks you to come in for a conversation, you’re happy to do that,” Mrs. McMahon told reporters in the lobby of Trump Plaza in Manhattan.

“We talked about business and entrepreneurs and creating jobs and we talked about SBA,” she said. “We had a really good conversation.”

Pressed about whether she was seeking a job or if there was an offer, Mrs. McMahon didn’t rule either out.

“That remains to be seen. Stay tuned,” she said.

Mrs. McMahon and her husband, Vince McMahon, were major donors to Rebuilding America Now, a pro-Trump political action committee.
