A legendary wrestler is making his return to the WWE in a different role. Paul Levesque, also known as Triple H will be the new head of the WWE creative following Vince McMahon‘s retirement from the chief position.

WWE released an official statement naming Levesque to the role: “WWE executive Paul Levesque will assume all responsibilities related to WWE’s creative, in addition to his regular duties.”

McMahon’s sudden retirement came amid numerous investigations and scandals into misconduct and alleged hush money payments within the WWE. In a statement, McMahon said, “As I approach 77 years old, I feel it’s time for me to retire as Chairman and CEO of WWE. Throughout the years, it’s been a privilege to help WWE bring you joy, inspire you, thrill you, surprise you, and always entertain you.”

He also touched on the impending investigation. “I have pledged my complete cooperation to the investigation by the special committee, and I will do everything possible to support the investigation. I have also pledged to accept the findings and outcome of the investigation, whatever they are,” he said.
