The controversy surrounding John Laurinaitis has garnered significant attention, particularly concerning his alleged involvement in Vince McMahon’s hush money settlement scandal and the subsequent trafficking lawsuit. These allegations led to WWE severing ties with Laurinaitis. He has now been accused of racism and discrimination.

Additionally, he found himself implicated in Vince McMahon’s trafficking lawsuit. Laurinaitis has maintained his innocence throughout the ordeal, asserting that he is a victim of circumstances.

Recently, Ronda Rousey blasted John Laurinaitis and alleged that he made sexist decisions during his time in NXT.

While speaking on the Wrestling Time Machine, WWE Hall of Famer Teddy Long blasted John Laurinaitis for trying to take away his job just because of the color of his skin, accusing him of racism and discrimination.


“Like I said, I don’t hold back my tongue back on Laurinaitis, one of the worst pieces of sh*t on this planet. They can do whatever they wanna do. You sue me all you want to, then you’re gonna get holla, holla, holla. So, that’s all I can tell you, man. Like I said, I’m not gonna bring them through with this, but here’s a man that’s gonna stop me from making a living because of the color of my skin, not because I was not doing my job. So you’re gonna tell me I did my job on the face of that TV for nine years. You know what I’m saying? Let me stop.”

Teddy Long’s comments stem from the fact that John Laurinaitis set him up to get fired by WWE in the past. Nonetheless, it remains to be seen what will become of John Laurinatis in the end.
