The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that John Laurinaitis stepping away from his excutive job to now be a producer isn't just because he's "burnt out" as initially reported.
The reasoning of being tired, while it might have some truth to it, is more of a cover for the political reasons behind it.
Triple H is said to have never been a fan of Laurinaitis and the writing was on the wall as Triple H has continued to gain more power as an executive.
Jane Geddes, Vice President of Talent Relations, and Canyon Ceman, Senior Director of Talent Development have been continuing to learn the ways of the machine that is WWE.
As they continue to learn, they assumed duties that belonged to Laurinaitis. Creative writer Michael Hayes replaced John Laurinaitis as matchmaker of live events and it is said that he was taken out of the loop concerning developmental program matters.
Laurinaitis is expected to return to television soon as an on-screen performer. The word in WWE is as Laurinaitis began losing all of his power, he decided to not leave WWE because his family just bought a new home in Connecticut and don't want to pick up and leave.
