WWE: Stephanie McMahon takes the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge #SmackDownALS #StrikeOutALS

WWEHaving now taken the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and having made a donation to the cause myself, I'm not sure how many more videos I can post about it... but since her husband Triple H already stepped up, it's only appropriate to share the challenge video from WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon. Shot last night after her victorious match against Brie Bella at WWE SummerSlam in Los Angeles, Stephanie took on a full garbage can of ice to answer the challenge of Maria Menounos in an effort to raise funds and awareness for The ALS Association in their efforts to combat Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) aka "Lou Gerhig's disease."
