Mike Johnson of PWinsider.com is reporting that John Laurinaitis has been quietly let go by WWE.

Laurinaitis served as WWE’s head of talent relations from 2004-12 and then had a second stint in the role beginning last year until being placed on administrative leave after the first Wall Street Journal report was published in June. Bruce Prichard was placed in an interim role until Paul Levesque was named the new head of talent relations.

The Wall Street Journal uncovered several nondisclosure agreements signed by past female employees with the company regarding alleged misconduct by McMahon and Laurinaitis. Laurinaitis has been affiliated with WWE since 2001 when WCW was purchased and he was among the officials that were hired by WWE and later replaced Jim Ross as its head of talent relations.

POST Wrestling has reached out to WWE officials for confirmation on the status of Laurinaitis and has not received a response yet.
