** (In WWE): Teddy Long, Wrestling/CMPunk CM Punk and Wrestling/JohnCena



** Spent years in the background in WWE, until 2011 when Wrestling/CMPunk cut a promo where Laurinaitis was included. The he became the Raw and Smackdown GM. That is until he was "fired" by [[Wrestling/VinceMcMahon Vince [=McMahon=]]].

** Was in danger of losing his status as Interim General Manager before the 2012 Royal Rumble after publicly admitting that he intended to screw Wrestling/CMPunk out of the championship title, but he managed to convince the Board of Directors to give him another chance. Then he manages to take over both ''Raw'' and ''Smackdown'' and made Jerkass decisions as well as blackmailing Teddy Long. Then he decided to make Wrestling/BrockLesnar, a brute who enjoys beating people up, the top face of the company, even giving in to Lesnar's outrageous demands. And after losing his top face, he lashes out on a already-injured Wrestling/JohnCena. And despite all that, the Board of Directors still didn't take any action against him. Should be noted that, Wrestling/JohnCena had been approached by the Board of Directors about Laurinaitis' attack on him and told them not to do anything to him until after their match at ''Over the Limit''. Which they didn't. They just declared ''very'' specific rules for the match that cut off any possible attempts by Laurinaitis to fix the match and declared that if Cena beat him, Laurinaitis will be fired. Cena approved. Only for Laurinatis to win the match as a result of a FaceHeelTurn by Wrestling/TheBigShow and maintain his job as GM (albeit after a lengthy beatdown by Cena).

* TheResenter: Resents CMPunk due to Punk's success and his own lack of. Johnny had the look going for him yet was so bland that he couldn't land a decent job in the states, while Punk, a guy who doesn't fit the mold and wasn't supposed to make it in the WWE, ended up achieving more in the last year than Johnny did his entire life. Johnny's so bitter about it that he made it his purpose in life to to make Punk's miserable.

*** It did. The Bellas are now his stepdaughters, Daniel Bryan's his stepson-in-law through his marriage to Brie. And keep in mind, Nikki Bella's been dating Wrestling/JohnCena for several years now...

* TheBusCameBack: Returned on the March 29, 2013 ''[=SmackDown=]'' where he tried to convince Wrestling/TheRock to let him be in the Rock's corner for his match against Cena at ''[=WrestleMania=]''. Rock promised that he wouldn't give Laurinaitis the Rock Bottom. They shook hands, followed by Rock hitting a Spinebuster and a People's Elbow.



* HumiliationConga: Starting on the June 11th ''[[Wrestling/{{WWERaw}} Raw]]'', where [[Wrestling/VinceMcMahon Vince [=McMahon=]]] pretty much openly mocks him all night, along with Wrestling/{{Sheamus}}. It continues on ''[=SmackDown=]'', where John Cena knocked him out on his ass. It ultimately culminates at ''Wrestling/NoWayOut'', where Wrestling/BrodusClay holds him while Wrestling/JohnCena escapes the cage and seals Laurinaitis' fate. He's then promptly fired and put through the announce table by Wrestling/JohnCena. Finally, on the next RAW, he gets mocked by Wrestling/MickFoley, and has Wrestling/TheBigShow and David Otunga walk out on him since [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness he's no longer the boss and thus no longer useful to them]], leaving him to Wrestling/JohnCena, who, at the request of the fans, gives him ''three'' Attitude Adjustments and makes him tap out to the STF. Oh, and his favorite [[KickTheDog dog to kick]] Theodore Long watches this from ringside clapping and cheering.

** He ended his MotiveRant to Wrestling/MickFoley about how much he hated Wrestling/CMPunk and was planning on screwing Punk at the RoyalRumble...by blasting Foley in the head with the microphone, which is one of the distinctive things Punk has been known for doing.

* OnlySaneMan: Believe it or not, he comes off as this on Total Bellas. Often mediating conflicts between his new wife and her children and being able to point out validity in both perspectives.

John Joseph Laurinaitis (born July 31, 1965) is a former wrestler under the name Johnny Ace. He wrestled mainly in Japan before his retirement, then became the head booker for Wrestling/{{WCW}}, replacing the outgoing Wrestling/VinceRusso. This job proved less-than-secure in 2001, so he jumped ship to WWE, first as an road agent, then became the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations until 2012. He also briefly served as GM of both [[Wrestling/WWERaw Raw]] and [[Wrestling/WWESmackDown SmackDown]].

* HesBack: He returned on the March 29th edition of Smackdown. But doing so in the middle of "Story Time with [[DwayneJohnson The Rock]]" probably wasn't one of his better ideas however, since it ended in a Rock Bottom and People's Elbow.
