Vince McMahon has stepped down as CEO of WWE amid misconduct allegations.

The decision was announced on Friday (17 June) in a statement on the company's official website and also confirmed Stephanie McMahon will take over as interim CEO and interim chairwoman.

Despite leaving his role as CEO, McMahon appeared on Friday Night SmackDown one day later.
