WWE legend Triple H has landed a promotion following the recent retirement of billionaire Vince McMahon.
The 14-time world champion announced his retirement from the ring last year following a heart operation.
The 53-year-old, real name Paul Levesque, then returned to the company as head of talent relations before taking charge of WWE’s creative after McMahon’s exit amid an investigation into alleged misconduct.
Fans have been full of praise for the job The Game has done since over the past few weeks.
Now the wrestling company has announced that he has control over almost the entire on-screen production after he was named the new Chief Content Officer.
In a statement confirming the news, Triple H said: “WWE is one of the most prolific producers of premium content in the world and I look forward to this amazing opportunity.

And WWE themselves were quick to highlight the success of Triple H since he took up his role and his wife Stephanie McMahon replaced Vince as co-CEO and chairwoman.
They said: “Since taking over creative for WWE, Levesque has architected a 15 per cent spike in Monday Night Raw viewership and double-digit increases in social media engagement.”
