WWE has named longtime wrestler and Executive Vice President Paul “Triple H’ Levesque as the new head of creative. This move comes after longtime CEO and head of creative Vince McMahon announced he was retiring from his roles with the company. McMahon has headed the creation of the company since taking over for his father in 1982. Paul Levesque is married to Stephanie McMahon, the new co-CEO of WWE. He also served as the executive producer of WWE’s developmental brand NXT.

In September of 2021, Paul “Triple H” Levesque stepped away from his duties in WWE due to a cardiac event. That event would lead to him announcing his retirement from in-ring competition in March of 2022. On Friday, WWE announced that Levesque would be returning to his duties as Executive Vice President. When asked about the return he was quoted saying: “I’m healthy, fired up, and ready to take charge.”
