• Fan Outrage Results In John Laurinaitis’ 1st Appearance Since WWE Hush Money Scandal Being Canceled
John Laurinaitis (former Head of Talent Relations in WWE) got fired from WWE last year due to his involvement in Vince McMahon’s hush money scandal.
He was announced for his first appearance since WWE release at WrestleCon in Los Angeles, California during the WrestleMania 39 weekend. He was being brought to the event by Bobby Fulton’s Big Time Collectibles.
However, his appearance was canceled after fan outrage.
Bobby Fulton issued the following statement regarding this:
“Yesterday we announced John Laurinaitis would be doing an appearance with Big Time Collectibles. Upon announcement we received only negative feedback.
After much consideration we have decided to not work with him. We apologize to those that were offended by us working with him.”
Jim Ross recently said the following about Laurinaitis getting fired on his podcast:
“I had a hard time as time went on trusting Laurinaitis. That’s sad to say. I hired him. I gave him a job when he needed it. I don’t think he treated me quite right.
He just wanted to show Vince that he was a better manager than JR and all these things. So now his a$$ is without a job and he deserves the goddamn misery that he’s living, that I perceive that he’s living, and I didn’t like how he treated me.”
