Laurinaitis Advertised For Monday’s Raw, SmackDown In Louisiana
– John Cena’s Steel Cage Match victory over Big Show at No Way Out carried the stipulation that John Laurinaitis would be terminated as WWE Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and Raw and SmackDown General Manager if The World’s Largest Athlete couldn’t pick up the victory. The former ‘Giant’ lost, and Laurinaitis was subsequently fired by Mr. McMahon. He was then given a ‘painful farewell’ by Cena on Raw SuperShow after Big Show and David Otunga both abandoned him in a 3-on-1 Handicap Match. Despite Sunday and Monday’s events, Laurinaitis is advertised for next Monday’s Raw SuperShow at Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
The official website of the venue announced: “Mr. McMahon fired Raw and SmackDown General Manager John Laurinaitis at No Way Out, but per The WWE Board of Directors, John Laurinaitis must fulfill his contractual obligations and still team with Big Show to battle John Cena in Fort Wayne!”
– WWE will hold a SmackDown taping on Tuesday, November 27 at Century Link Center in Bossier City, Louisiana.
– Brock Lesnar is featured on the cover of the latest issue of Pro Wrestling Illustrated.
