In a recent revelation, WWE has announced its choices for the Board of Directors for the newly merged company ‘TKO’, which will come into existence after the completion of the Endeavor deal. Out of the 11 members that the TKO Board will comprise, WWE gets to choose five, while Endeavor selects the remaining six. As of now, WWE has confirmed four of its choices, and shockingly, Paul Levesque, popularly known as Triple H, is not among them.
The confirmed members from WWE’s side include Vincent K McMahon, Nick Khan, Steven R Koonin, and Nancy R Tellem.
While McMahon, Khan, and Koonin are already part of the WWE Board of Directors, Tellem is a fresh addition. This announcement has left fans and industry insiders puzzled, as several current members of the WWE Board, including Triple H, have not been selected for the TKO Board.
Although WWE still has one spot to finalise, Triple H’s omission up to this point is noteworthy.
Triple H and Other Notable Absences
Apart from Triple H, other members of the current WWE Board who haven’t been chosen for the TKO Board include George A Barrios, Michelle R McKenna, Steve Pamon, and Michelle D Wilson.
On the other hand, Endeavor has already made its six Board member choices for TKO. These members are Ari Emanuel, Egon P Durban, Jonathan A Kraft, Sonya E Medina, Mark Shapiro, and Carrie Wheeler.
The Endeavor Deal’s Timeline
Endeavor has indicated that they expect the merger to be finalized by the second half of September 2023.
This merger and the subsequent formation of the TKO Board is a significant event in the wrestling industry, and all eyes will be on the final decisions and the implications they bring.
The Future for Triple H
Triple H’s absence from the initial list of TKO Board members raises questions about his future role in WWE. As a prominent figure in the wrestling world, his contributions and leadership have been pivotal for the company.
Whether WWE will include him in the final spot or if he will take on a different role remains to be seen.
