WWE Head of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis landed himself in hot water after he was allegedly involved in Vince McMahon’s hush money settlement scandal. That led a lot of people to wonder what Johnny Ace would do in the company. He was also called a snake by a top WWE talent.

In fact, the belief was that Johnny Ace was going to lose his job after the Vince McMahon scandal. In fact, he was placed on indefinite administrative leave.

WWE announced today that Triple H has returned to his role as Executive Vice President of Talent Relations. Previously, Bruce Pritchard was filling the role temporarily.

According to Sean Sapp behind Fightful’s paywall, Laurinaitis is effectively done with the company. It was said that some of the company’s top talent celebrated, with one calling Laurinaitis a ‘snake’.


Ringside News exclusively reported on June 22nd that WWE shut off Johnny Ace’s cell phone number, one he had for decades.

Laurinaitis’ unpopularity within the locker room is a well-known fact by now. We will have to wait and see how Triple H will fare as the EVP of Talent Relations from now on.
