Nick Khan Addresses Vince McMahon WWE Creative Rumors WWE

WWE CEO Nick Khan has discussed the future of WWE creative, following speculation about a potential behind-the-scenes role change.

Following the April 3 edition of WWE Raw, reports indicated that Vince McMahon was ‘firmly back in charge’ at this show, despite stepping away from his creative duties in July 2022.

McMahon hasn’t been backstage for some of the more recent WWE shows, including this week’s (April 14) edition of SmackDown.

Speaking on ‘LightShed Live’ Nick Khan stated that WWE is lucky to have Paul Levesque (Triple H) running creative.

Stating that Triple H will remain the sole chief content officer of WWE, Khan said:

“When this deal was officially announced, Monday morning, Vince sent out a company-wide email to our thousand or so employees, including myself.

“And in the email, he laid out the structure of the NewCo, which certainly you guys have read about and are familiar with.

“In addition to Vince being the Executive Chairman, Ari Emanuel being the CEO, Mark Shapiro being the President, Dana White continuing as President of UFC, and me at WWE — specifically Vince articulated that Paul Levesque remains the sole chief creative officer. Sole.

“So, how does it work? Does that mean because I’m technically in charge of the business side of the business that I don’t seek input from other people? Or I wouldn’t seek input from Vince McMahon, who created this entire empire?

“That would be a mistake on my behalf.

“Paul and Vince, have a family relationship, a relationship that stands back to the mid-90s. Paul’s in charge of creative.

“If he wants input from Vince or Vince has ideas then he and Paul are gonna communicate, that’s always gonna be the case.

“We’re lucky to have Vince. We’re lucky to have Paul in control of creative.”
