Source: PWTorchStephanie McMahon has been less involved with the creative content of WWE programming than many expected her to be at this point. She took maternity leave following the birth of her third child in August and has largely worked via telecommuting since that time. One company source said Paul Levesque (a/k/a Triple H) appears more creatively involved than he has ever been after his promotion in the fall to Vince McMahon's Senior Advisor.
Though Levesque does not attend creative meetings, he is more involved in the creative process and has a lot of stroke in producer meetings. He has also filled in as a show runner when Vince McMahon missed a few recent television tapings.
"I would say Vince McMahon is the executive show runner and Hunter is the associate show runner," said one WWE source. "He's the apprentice."
It should be noted that Vince is not going anywhere any time soon. The feeling within WWE is that they will be in good hands with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in charge. 'H' is also said to be "with the times" while Vince is stuck in the 80's and 90's.
