Vince McMahon will relinquish his WWE creative duties as part of his retirement as the promotion's CEO and Chairman.

The 76-year-old's shocking retirement statement made no mention of his position as head of creative, noting only that he was stepping down as CEO and Chairman but retaining his status as a majority shareholder. It has since been confirmed that McMahon is, indeed, letting go of all WWE roles - including creative.

Fightful Select report that multiple people within WWE have indicated that they haven't been informed who will be running creative for Raw and SmackDown going forward.

WWE Chairwoman Stephanie McMahon and President Nick Khan were handed the role of co-CEOs upon Vince's retirement. Meanwhile, Paul 'Triple H' Levesque has today returned to the company's Executive Vice President, Talent Relations role. Bruce Prichard had been serving in that position in an interim capacity since the previous incumbent, John Laurinaitis, was placed on leave in June.


That WWE's creative department will soon be run by a person not named "Vince McMahon" will surely be music to the ears of those tired of the long-standing figurehead's brand of sports entertainment. Only time will tell if this ends up benefitting the product beyond subjective opinion.
