Stephanie McMahon became Co-CEO of WWE with Nick Khan in the summer of 2022 after her father, Vince McMahon, retired. Vince McMahon was embroiled in a WWE Board of Directors investigation into hush money payments made to female employees with whom he reportedly had affairs with. He was also facing numerous accusations of sexual misconduct.
McMahon returned to the company and seized power by brining two loyal board members with him and ousting three others — one of whom led the investigation into the hush money payments. McMahon is now the executive chairman of the board, but without Stephanie as CEO. Nick Khan remains CEO.
Upon his return, McMahon has already been slapped with a clash action lawsuit regarding his return to the business. McMahon and WWE have not publicly commented on those accusations at this time.
