Triple H has effectively been announced as WWE’s new head of creative today.

The promotion broke the news via an official press release formally confirming Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan as co-CEOs. This follows Friday’s news that at 76 years old, Vince McMahon was stepping down as CEO and Chairman.

WWE’s release reads as follows:

STAMFORD, Conn., July 25, 2022 – WWE® (NYSE: WWE) and its Board of Directors today announced the appointment of Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan as co-Chief Executive Officers. Ms. McMahon has also been appointed Chairwoman of the Board, and Mr. Khan will continue to serve as a member of the Board. These appointments follow Vince McMahon’s retirement announcement on Friday, July 22.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to lead WWE together with our unmatched management team,” said Ms. McMahon and Mr. Khan. “We recognize this is a tremendous opportunity and responsibility, and we look forward to serving the WWE Universe.”

Additionally, WWE executive Paul Levesque will assume all responsibilities related to WWE’s creative, in addition to his regular duties.

Last Friday saw Levesque appointed WWE’s Executive Vice President, Talent Relations, a role he’d previously held prior to John Laurinaitis’ return to the company. Laurinaitis is now out of WWE following his implication in the Vince McMahon “hush money” scandal.

Having served as NXT’s creative lead until September 2021, this will be Triple H’s biggest creative role in wrestling to date.
