Craig Tello, a writer for WWE.com, issued an apology Monday to Executive Vice President John Laurinaitis and WWE for using “disparaging terminology” in his article covering the events of last night’s WWE Championship Match at Money in the Bank.
Tello wrote: “As a senior WWE.com writer, I would like to publically apologize to Executive Vice President John Laurinaitis and WWE for my use of disparaging terminology in WWE.com’s article covering the events of last night’s Money in the Bank WWE Championship Match.
“The term I used was inappropriate for an executive at WWE, Inc. I greatly respect Mr. Laurinaitis and his efforts within the WWE organization.”
Tello referred to Laurinaitis as “McMahon”s 2011 stooge” in his article on the title match. The remark has since been whitewashed.
