- John Laurinaitis no longer officially serves as WWE’s Executive Vice President of Talent Relations; his bio has been removed from the WWE Corporate website’s index of executive officers. Therefore, the former ‘Dynamic Dude’ is solely an on-air performer for WWE. However, he is still branded as the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations in his WWE.com Superstars profile and on his Twitter account.

Laurinaitis had overseen the Talent Relations department since April 2004, when he replaced Jim Ross. He was hired as a road agent after the sport entertainment organization’s acquisition of certain assets of World Championship Wrestling in March 2001.

Paul “Triple H” Levesque, who oversees the talent relations and talent development departments, has been added to the website.

– Counting down to twelve days remaining on his thirty-day WWE suspension due to an irresponsible act of denigrating the Brazilian flag at a WWE live event in São Paulo on May 24, Chris Jericho tweeted Monday, “I was 12 years old when I started my first band, The Amplifiers. Our song was called ‘Cop Shop’. I still remember how it goes!”

– Triple H is today’s spotlighted WWE Superstar on WWE.com.

    Can see them working this into Raw, with Vince telling him that it’s been decided that Laurinitis has to step down from one of his jobs, or just firing him from that role thanks to his screwing up of the Lesnar situation.

    Main reason this is bad news is that it means he will continue to be on air talent .. fuck that.

  • SYM

    Well the Company is still the same to me. Triple H is also one of those “Yes Men” as Pissed Off Fan =( put it.

  • Bawb

    This is not good for him. If ratings don’t improve while he is an on-air performer, there could be a chance that he is removed from that position as well. So, where does that leave him?

  • Pissed Off Fan =(

    I would actually think it is better for the company to get rid of him as the EVP. He is truly just a “YES MAN” and hasnt done anything good for us. I actually liked JR as the EVP

  • Little Jimmy (Not Big Johnny)

    (In Laurinatis Voice) YES!YES!YES People Power!

  • Devil_Rising

    I’d like to think this is good news. But I doubt whoever replaces him will be much better.

  • Omar

    I hear the echoes from the cheers of all that have been future endeavored by him.

  • Lord KGM

    No Way In is what it should be called because soon the “Dynamic Dude” will be unemployed…or have a lower position in the company.
