John Laurinaitis Resigns As WWE Senior Vice President of Talent Operations
– WWE announced that John Laurinaitis resigned from his position as Senior Vice President of Talent Operations, effective immediately. Here is the official announcement from WWE.com:
Effective immediately, John Laurinaitis is resigning from his position as Senior Vice President of Talent Operations. Following his very public firing at June’s No Way Out, Laurinaitis continued to work behind-the-scenes in his corporate role. After eight years of service in talent relations, he’s “burned out” and now hopes to concentrate on what he knows best: putting together matches and working with WWE talent as a producer.
– Laurinaitis’ power behind-the-scenes has been weakening with Triple H having his people running most aspects of WWE’s talent relations department. Triple H has not been a big supporter of Laurinaitis, which led to his reduced role in the department, according to The Wrestling Observer newsletter.
