Ever since Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan were announced as co-CEOs of WWE, many have wondered how the dynamic will work. For the longest time, WWE was run by Vince McMahon. Now with McMahon gone, there are questions regarding who will be in charge of certain aspects of the company.
According to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it appears Khan will run the business side of things while Stephanie will handle the wrestling side. A source close to the situation told the Observer that WWE having co-CEOs was the right call to make after McMahon’s retirement, stating:
“I actually believe this pairing is necessary. Nick is a revenue driver. And he’s been involved in things that are not his specialty. What he’s good at, he’s great at. Steph is the promoter. The old school promoter with the new lexicon in media about analytics and branding. If Steph sticks to being a promoter, managing the relationships for the company, and Nick sticks to revenue, they’re a formidable team.”
Stephanie’s husband, Triple H, was announced to be in charge of all things creative. When talking about the transition, Triple H stated that he could never fill the shoes of Vince McMahon and that it would take a team effort to take things in a new direction.
