On April 3rd it was confirmed that WWE has secured a staggering merger with UFC.
The deal worth $21 billion will see WWE join UFC under the Endeavor umbrella. A new publicly listed company will be created that will be 51% owned by Endeavor and 49% owned by WWE. A press release stated that the merger is worth a staggering $21 billion, and Ariel Emanuel will serve as CEO with Vince McMahon as Executive Chairman.
This was followed by the news from Vince McMahon himself, that he will be involved with WWE creative going forward. Although he did state that he won’t be involved “in the weeds,” instead limiting his impact to “higher up.”
This has naturally led to speculation around Triple H’s position as Chief Content Officer. Since Vince McMahon’s initial retirement in July 2022, The Game has headed up creative on the main roster, while suggestions that McMahon has been involved recently have been rebuffed by all involved.
John Pollock has now reported that an internal email was sent out in WWE confirming that Triple H will remain in his role following the merger.
“Per sources: An internal email was sent out in WWE and included the line that “Paul Levesque will remain WWE’s chief content executive”
