Vince McMahon was the boss of WWE since 1982. Vince bought the promotion from his father, Vincent J. McMahon, and transformed into a global phenomenon. The 77-year-old is no longer at the helm of affairs, and this is a historic day for WWE creative as well.

Mr. McMahon announced his retirement from the promotion on Wednesday. McMahon had already stepped down from his position as the chairman of the board, but was the head of the creative.

Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics reported that Vince McMahon has stepped away from all roles he had in the WWE, including the promotion’s creative head. WWE also held an emergency meeting to discuss the scenario post Vince’s exit.

Vince McMahon is retiring from all roles, including head of creative, a WWE spokesperson confirms to me.
