Many fans have called out WWE’s head of talent relations, John Laurinaitis, for firing talent in the company. Although he has a bad reputation, Laurinaitis still holds significant influence in the company and has even been praised for his contributions.
One such praise comes from former WWE talent Jillian Hill, who recalled when Laurinaitis helped her during a sudden miscarriage while on the active roster in 2009. Johnny Ace was able to help her out as he went above and beyond what most might in a similar situation.
Jillian Hall took to Twitter today to go more in depth on how Laurinaitis help to get her a doctor and made sure she could make a speedy recovery. What’s evident is that surprising miscarriage took a toll on Hall mentally, but she received a flood of support after posting her message.
So many people want to bash @WWE for how they treat their talent, but it’s a business, like any other. It’s a tv show! Did u know in spring (I think) 2009 I lost a baby while on the active roster? I had a complete mental breakdown in LA. I was booked for RAW but John Laurinaitis handled it so gracefully.
He got me on a flight home and found me a dr immediately for intense therapy for the next 6 weeks. I was off the road for a bit and checked on frequently. They made sure I was totally ok before returning to work.
After being released from her contract in 2010, Hall made sporadic appearances on WWE television, including an appearance in the 2021 women’s Royal Rumble match. In March of 2020, she gave birth to her second daughter.
It’s good that Jillian Hall can look back at such a dark period with positivity and find the light in such a sad situation. Our thoughts are with anyone going through an ordeal like losing a pregagncy or if you are still grieving from a memory that has yet to go away.
