Triple H was handling the creative and talent relations aspect of things in the WWE after Vince McMahon’s sudden retirement. It looks like WWE has hired someone to ease off the workload for The Game.
WWE issued a press release where they revealed that Dan Ventrelle will join the company as EVP, Talent, and Maurice F. Edelson will come aboard as EVP, Chief Legal Officer. Dan was with the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders, where he served as the team’s President.
Dan will oversee the talent department and report to Triple H. Ventrelle is very excited about this new opportunity as a lifelong WWE fan.
“As a lifelong fan, it is an honor to join the world’s premier sports entertainment company,” said Ventrelle. “I am inspired by the vision that Stephanie, Nick and Paul have for the future and excited to further the commitment to deliver exceptional talent to the WWE Universe.”
Triple H also is elated at this new member joining the team, and he briefly opened up about working with Dan Ventrelle.
“Working with Dan during SummerSlam at Allegiant Stadium last year, we were impressed by his expertise across a number of business and personnel areas. We’re excited to welcome him to the company.”
Maurice F. Edelson joins WWE with 25-years of legal and business experience in the media, arts and entertainment industries. He was with The Juilliard School, where he served as General Counsel since 2015.
Edelson has worked with Time Inc. as the EVP & General Counsel. He also directed Corporate Strategy and M&A during his 16-year tenure with the company. He would be reporting to Chairwoman & co-CEO Stephanie McMahon.
