[WWE News] John Laurinaitis Steps Down as Senior VP of Talent Relations
WWE announced today that John Laurinaitis has officially resigned as Senior Vice President of Talent Relations after eight years. According to the statement, the “Dynamic Dude” and proponent of “People Power” has stepped down to being burned out at the position but I’m sure the reasons behind it are for more political than that. Laurinaitis, who’s on-screen role ended last month at No Way Out, will remain with the WWE as a producer.
It’ll be interesting to see how a post-Laurinaitis WWE will look like, as he was responsible for bringing in new talent. With someone else now stepping into the job, we could see a roster that looks completely different in the next couple of years. I’m kind of excited to see what happens. And for anyone who’s unfamiliar with what Laurinaitis actually did as Senior VP of Talent Relations, here’s the original job posting which lays it all out. Sounds pretty godd*mn grueling, if you ask me.
