Vince McMahon Announces Retirement

Longtime WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon officially announced his retirement in a post shared on his verified Twitter account.

“At 77, time for me to retire,” McMahon tweeted. “Thank you, WWE Universe. Then. Now. Forever. Together.” 

McMahon’s decision comes one month after his announcement to voluntarily step down from his responsibilities amid an ongoing investigation into alleged misconduct and would be replaced by his daughter, Stephanie, on an interim basis.

The announcement also comes after his son-in-law, Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque announced he would will resume his executive position as WWE’s EVP of talent relations effective immediately.
