News On John Laurinaitis's Backstage Role

As reported before, Paul Levesque (Triple H) is now listed as the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations on WWE's corporate website, instead of John Laurinaitis. This is a change making official what has been the case for a while. Laurinaitis has worked under Triple H and Triple H has hired new people like Canyon Cemen and Jane Geddes. Geddes is Vice President of Talent Relations and is doing a lot of the work Laurinaitis was doing. Cemen is running Talent Development and is reporting to Triple H. Laurinaitis has had many of his duties reduced as of late and the expectation is that his job will be changed in some form down the line as Triple H puts his own hires in key positions.
