John Laurinaitis returned to Raw

John Laurinaitis brings "People Power" to The New Era: Raw, June 20, 2016

Big Johnny returns to WWE with big plans for SmackDown when it goes live on July 19.

The SmackDown power race just got its ace in the hole. The latest entrant in the revolving door of would-be showrunners for the blue brand was none other than Mr. John Laurinaitis, former Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and General Manager of both Raw and SmackDown. And as pumped as some might be at the idea of Mr. Excitement resurrecting “People Power,” Shane McMahon wasn’t exactly ready to receive the Gift of Johnny. The McMahon scion politely, if firmly, ushered Big Johnny from the podium and reiterated his own desire to helm the SmackDown ship come Draft night on July 19.
