John Laurinaitis Has His Duties with WWE Cut Back, Speculation on His Future

– We noted before that Paul Levesque (Triple H) is now listed as the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations on WWE’s corporate website, instead of John Laurinaitis. This is a change making official what has been the case for a while. Laurinaitis has worked under Triple H and Triple H has hired new people like Canyon Cemen and Jane Geddes. Geddes is Vice President of Talent Relations and is doing a lot of the work Laurinaitis was doing. Cemen is running Talent Development and is reporting to Triple H.

Laurinaitis has had many of his duties reduced as of late and the expectation is that his job will be changed in some form down the line as Triple H puts his own hires in key positions. Laurinaitis is still booking WWE live events but the writers are more involved in that as there is a movement within the company to make the live events more like the TV shows. Laurinaitis is also doing the talent payroll but has been spending more time on the road as a talent.

    Cocksuckers will always bitch about HHH, when he does something right they wont comment.

    “a movement within the company to make the live events more like the TV shows” Way overdue. Sell those radios like they did at Wrestlemania at all shows and have live event commentary over the airwaves. Their TV shows are such high standard product that going to the live shows is a letdown unless you are in the first five rows.

    Triple H just started with his plans, and you guys are already bitching?

    Triple H is truly going to Fuck WWE up. Hes trying to get Athletes who have no experience in Wrestling, because he says Indie Guys aren’t good enough. The Fuck outta here.

  • No wonder why one article on here states that FCW is being restructured like a minor league, and WWE in general like a Major Sports league. Cause Laurinaitis doing payroll still??? Da fok kind goofy shit is this? The payroll person shouldn’t be doing segements on Raw with Vince/Cena/Big Show….. not in the REEL WHIRLD

    Not that I know a lot about it, but I have the impression that Laurinaitis had too much stuff to do for a human being.
