Absolute Latest on John Laurinaitis’ Role With the WWE; Could He Be Paired Up With a Returning Star?

Several reports have surfaced over the past couple of weeks that question the future of former Senior Vice President of Talent Operations John Laurinaitis.

Laurinaitis is still actively working behind the scenes and is happy with his current involvement with the company according to a new report from WrestlingINC.com. Laurinaitis still helps out with creative, as well as with finishes for matches for certain wrestlers. Laurinaitis was at Raw last Monday, and is expected to be at the Tribute to the Troops this Sunday in Norfolk, VA.

In September, Laurinaitis underwent rotator cuff surgery and is rehabbing his shoulder at Tim Tebow’s facility in Tampa, FL. His shoulder was in much worse shape than originally thought, and is still not completely healed.

As of this writing, many believe that Johnny will be back on camera once he has fully recovered. Original plans called for him to be paired with Jack Swagger, although those plans may have changed.
