Vince McMahon’s retirement left WWE left fans with a lot of questions. There has been a ton of speculation about who would run the company’s creative team. In a press release from the company today, that question was answered.

Paul “Triple H” Levesque was recently named WWE’s new head of talent relations. In addition to those duties, The Game will take over as the head of creative. Triple H is well-regarded by fans for the time he spent in charge of the NXT brand.

WWE’s Monday morning press release indicated that Paul Levesque would be taking over all creative duties in the company. During last week’s SmackDown broadcast, Bruce Prichard was running the show, as reported exclusively by Ringside News and he was, by title, head of WWE creative. This new press release changed all of that. It did not take long after the show for that to change.

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


There are other moves expected shortly. Kevin Dunn is said to be on his way out at some point. The power vacuum in WWE seems to have been instantly filled by Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

Stephanie is now serving as WWE’s co-CEO with Nick Khan. Triple H was named EVP of talent relations just before the news of Vince McMahon’s retirement broke. For years, fans have wondered what WWE would look like at the top when Vince was gone. Now, that picture is becoming clearer by the day.
