WWE.com made an official announcement tonight regarding John Laurinaitis stepping down from his role as Senior Vice President of Talent Relations.
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.
Although this announcement was made tonight, Triple H has been running Talent Relations for several weeks in place of John Laurinaitis.
