Paul "Triple H" Levesque is now in charge of WWE creative. 

The company sent out a press release Monday morning formally announcing that Nick Khan and Stephanie McMahon were appointed by the Board as co-CEOs while Levesque is taking over the role previously held by Vince McMahon who announced his retirement on Friday.

"WWE executive Paul Levesque will assume all responsibilities related to WWE’s creative, in addition to his regular duties," the press release states. 

The company had just announced on Friday that Levesque is resuming his role as EVP of Talent Relations.  

“I look forward to returning to my prior position as head of Talent Relations. I’m healthy, fired up, and ready to take charge,” Levesque said in the release.

Fightful reported Monday that Bruce Prichard will remain with WWE and also work in creative.

Stephanie McMahon is now Chairwoman of the Board while Khan remains on the Board.

From the two in the release:

“We are grateful for the opportunity to lead WWE together with our unmatched management team. We recognize this is a tremendous opportunity and responsibility, and we look forward to serving the WWE Universe.”

At the time of this writing, WWE stock is up 6% in trading to $70.20 -- the first day the markets have been open since McMahon's announcement Friday.
