It was groundbreaking news in the professional wrestling world when McMahon resigned from his position, which he had held since 1982 after buying his father’s company.

McMahon controlled every aspect of WWE, from creative storytelling to finance, as he transformed the company from a regional wrestling ground into a multi-billion-dollar publicly traded international conglomerate.

After the exit, McMahon’s daughter, Stephanie McMahon, became co-CEO. The other co-CEO is Nick Khan, who joined the company from CAA in 2020. McMahon’s son-in-law, Paul Levesque, who appeared in WWE as Triple H, took over as Head of Creative. McMahon remains WWE’s majority shareholder.
