WWE EVP John Laurinaitis responds to suspicions
In the aftermath of Kevin Nash’s live WWE Raw SuperShow termination, the WWE Universe watched with great suspicion as Executive Vice President of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis escorted the fired 7-footer out of Columbus’ Nationwide Arena into a limousine.
WWE.com called Mr. Laurinaitis after he left the arena with Nash and asked him about the conversation that took place between both men. The Executive Vice President returned our call Friday afternoon with this terse statement:
“Kevin Nash is a friend of mine. We have a long history and I'm the one who hired him. I think the circumstances of Kevin's firing are unfortunate, but ultimately, I don’t make the rules around here. [WWE Chief Operating Officer] Triple H does. As far as the conversation in that limo, as the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations, I cannot disclose the nature of any private conversation with our talent in order to protect the integrity of the office.
I respect the hell out of Kevin and I wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
