WWE News: Update on Triple H Replacing John Laurinaitis in WWE Front Office

Chris HumphreyCorrespondent IJune 14, 2012

With his recent change of position on the corporate side of the WWE, John Laurinaitis might need to think up a new introduction phrase to irritate the fans whenever he makes an appearance on WWE television from now on.

Triple H has replaced Laurinaitis, who was a part of the Talent Relations division of the WWE from 2004, and will bring in his own people to help point the organization in a different direction.

F4WOnline (via WrestlingInc.com) has the details on the future of John Laurinaitis within the WWE as a front office executive and on-screen character on both Raw and SmackDown.

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.

Labelling John Laurinaitis as a “talent” is debatable. Regardless, the current general manager of both brands is the best thing going for the company in terms of an on-screen authority figure for the fans to hate at this moment in time.

With his removal from his front office position with the WWE, how do you see the creative team using Laurinaitis moving forward with his job on the line this Sunday at No Way Out?
