Triple H had one of the greatest in-ring careers in WWE history and now the Hall of Famer is taking on a new official job title: Chief Content Officer.

It was announced by WWE in a press release on Tuesday that Paul “Triple H” Levesque has an official new job title since he wears many hats in the company. Triple H recently took over as the Head of Talent Relations following the release of John Laurinaitis. It was just a few days later when he was confirmed as the Head of WWE Creative following the retirement of his father-in-law Vince McMahon, who stepped down as Chairman, CEO & Head of Creative after some damning information was released about numerous secret payments to women and other causes totaling up to $20 million.

Since McMahon stepped down, Triple H has been in charge of successful WWE stadium shows like SummerSlam in Nashville and Clash at the Castle in Cardiff, Wales while the general perception among WWE fans is that the quality of Raw & Smackdown has improved. In addition to that, several superstars released when McMahon was in charge have been brought back such as Braun Strowman, Dakota Kai, Dexter Lumis along with others and we also saw Johnny Gargano re-sign with the company. Some superstars like Austin Theory, Matt Riddle and Tommaso Ciampa were also given their first names after McMahon took them away.

In the press release sent out by WWE, they mentioned the growth of Raw’s ratings since Triple H took over while also mentioning his many responsibilities:

“Since taking over creative for WWE, Levesque has architected a 15% spike in Monday Night Raw viewership and double-digit increases in social media engagement. As Chief Content Officer, Levesque will oversee Creative Writing, Talent Relations, Live Events, Talent Development and Creative Services. The role will report to WWE co-CEO Nick Khan.”

Triple H talked about the success of the company as well as his role:

“WWE is one of the most prolific producers of premium content in the world and I look forward to this amazing opportunity. Having spent my entire career in this business, I’m confident that we have the right pieces in place to continue to grow our audience and deliver for our fans around the world.”

In addition to Triple H’s new job title, WWE also announced that they have promoted Frank A. Riddick III to President & Chief Financial Officer. Riddick joined WWE as Chief Financial Officer last year, after serving on the company’s Board of Directors for more than 13 years and previously holding the role of interim CFO.

The WWE Co-CEO’s Stephanie McMahon-Levesque and Nick Khan commented on the promotions of Triple H and Riddick.

“We are excited to announce expanded roles for Paul and Frank, which will enhance WWE’s ability to create premium content for our partners around the world and, ultimately, drive our business forward.”

The next WWE Premium Live Event will be Extreme Rules on Saturday, October 8th in Philadelphia.
