It's being reported that WWE's former Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and former Raw General Manager Mr. John Laurinaitis may be through with WWE, both on television and in real life. It was reported a few months back that his duties backstage had been reduced to almost none, especially during his final days as a television character. There was some talk that he would at least have a role as a TV persona, but as of right now WWE does not have any plans for him. The word is that he will most likely be released.
Some people backstage in WWE are reportedly a bit worried about Vince McMahon returning to his regular duties this week after visiting the troops. There is fear that he will be angry about WWE's low TV ratings and might start looking for people to blame.
