Triple H is named WWE’s new chief creative officer. Triple H will take over as WWE Creative Leader after Vince McMahon’s retirement.
WWE also issued a corporate filing with the SEC this morning, announcing that it has determined that Vince McMahon’s payouts to women in the past should have been recorded as official company expenses.
WWE announced a few hours ago through a brief official statement that Triple H (Paul Levesque) will assume all creative responsibilities of the company in addition to his usual functions as a manager.

In that same statement, the company also wanted to officially inform that Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan will be WWE Co-CEOS, information that was already known since last Friday, the day Vince McMahon announced his final withdrawal from all his positions within the company.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to lead WWE together with our unrivaled management team,” Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan said in the statement.
“We recognize that this is a tremendous opportunity and responsibility, and we look forward to serving the WWE Universe.”
A few days ago WWE announced that Triple H will immediately resume his position as Executive Vice President of Talent Relations, a position he held for several years in the past.
Triple H taking over creative is going to be very interesting. While you can debate the success of NXT on USA, he did have a limited budget and no big name stars. But NXT would not repeat matches over and over, nor did the promos sound overly scripted under his regime. pic.twitter.com/GZwgepBvnH
