John Laurinaitis was the former Head of Talent Relations of WWE and made headlines for all the wrong reasons after he was allegedly involved in Vince McMahon’s hush money settlement scandal. It all came crashing down right after that. Jim Cornette also commented on his WWE termination.

Johnny Ace was placed on indefinite administrative leave, and his future was all but certain after that. As previously reported, John Laurinaitis was fired by WWE earlier this month.

While speaking on the latest Jim Cornette Experience podcast, Jim Cornette discussed John Laurinaitis’ tenure in the industry. He also gave a hilarious reason as to why AEW should not sign Johnny Ace.

“He’s never been hailed as a creative genius that was gonna book or write or come up with the stories and the gimmicks and the angles to get to those finishes. Did I mention most of the boys don’t like him, so why does any independent company want to try to bring him in? Probably if they brought him into AEW, he could draw more money in a dunk tank in the locker room and give the boys a bunch of baseballs than he would contributing to the product.”


Johnny Ace received company emails even after getting fired by WWE. As Ringside News exclusively reported, his company cell phone number was shut off while ago. We’ll have to see what the future holds for Ace now.
