Well, the time has come for John Laurinaitis as news came out that he has been fired from WWE. John Laurinaitis was employed with WWE as the Head of Talent Relations. He has been a part of WWE behind the scenes since WCW folded in 2001.

Of course, this news should not come to a surprise to anyone at all. Especially with his involvement with Vince McMahon’s sexual misconduct allegations. It was reported that there was a $1.5 million nondisclosure agreement reached in 2012 with an employee and it involved Laurinaitis. Which is quite the coincidence as his demotion was the same year as the 1.5 million NDA.

No matter what was going to happen with this investigation by the WWE, there was no chance he was ever coming back. There is just too many allegations against him and with more stories coming, he had to go. There has been a history of Laurinaitis rubbing many the wrong way. Even during the pandemic, he did not come across well with all the firings that WWE did and him saying that it was all due to budget cuts.

I don’t see Laurinaitis coming back to WWE ever again. Which is quite the fall from grace as he was clearly a favorite of Vince McMahon. Laurinaitis was even considered to be inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame in the past. That clearly is not going to happen anymore with the growing allegations and his termination from the company.

With Laurinaitis gone, the man who will be replacing him as the Head of Talent relations is Triple H. Which is a great move as Triple H did a fantastic job during the Golden Years of NXT. It will be interesting to see what he does now in his return to the Head of Talent Relations role. He has already made many changes to WWE and many wrestlers will be more willing to come to WWE with Triple H in charge.
