Vince McMahon retired from WWE in the summer of 2022 amid allegation of sexual misconduct by multiple women and a WWE Board of Directors investigation into hush money payments made to WWE employees with whom he reportedly had affairs with.
McMahon returned to the company in January of this year as Executive Chairman of the Board. Soon after his return, Stephanie McMahon resigned as Co-CEO of the company. In his absence, Paul (Triple H) Levesque has been in control of WWE creative as the WWE’s Chief Content Officer.
McMahon reportedly returned to the WWE in order to oversee a potential sale of the business and media rights negotiations for the WWE Raw and Smackdown television properties.
WWE reported yesterday that its most recent PLE, Elimination Chamber, broke company records for viewership, gate, and merchandise. The event was headlined by Roman Reigns defending his WWE Undisputed Universal Championship against Sami Zayn and two Elimination Chamber matches.
