The company has seen some significant changes in leadership over the years, and the latest shift occurred when Triple H took over the creative duties from Vince McMahon. McMahon, who had been the WWE Chairman for several years, announced his retirement last year and stepped down from his role. Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan took over as co-CEOs for the company, and Triple H replaced John Laurinaitis as the EVP of Talent Relations and also took over creative responsibilities for WWE as “Chief Content Officer.”
However, Stephanie eventually stepped down from her role, and Vince reportedly made his return in a backstage role. Despite the leadership changes, WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair has continued to excel in her position. Flair, who has been one of the top female performers in WWE for a decade, had been one of the fastest-rising talents from the days of NXT, which was run by Triple H. Following her main roster debut, she dominated the women’s division and boasts being the 13-time Women’s Champion.
When asked about her experience going through the leadership transition, Flair revealed that it had been easy for her. Despite some fresh faces emerging in the WWE, her position on the roster had remained the same, and she confirmed that her character would not be changing along the way. Speaking to Daily Mail, Flair stated, “I think it’s different for me because I’m already established. Triple H was my boss early on, he’s my boss now, whether it’s Triple H or Vince, I think the biggest change for a talent in leadership is more the new talent.”
Flair went on to explain that her job is to perform and make the best product, regardless of who her boss is at the time.
”I think it’s different for me because I’m already established. Triple H was my boss early on, he’s my boss now, whether it’s Triple H or Vince, I think the biggest change for a talent in leadership is more the new talent.
I’ve been under both reigns. My job is to perform and to make the best product. My job is to make Triple H happy right now. If it’s Vince, my job is to make Vince happy. The transition is very easy. From a character standpoint, it hasn’t changed, but the transition from one boss to another has been easy for me.”
