As noted earlier,
John Laurinaitis attended WWE’s recent
tour of Japan. Laurinaitis is one of the more experienced WWE agents/producers
as it pertains to Japan and actually ran the entire tour by himself. Laurinaitis
used to wrestle back in Japan in the late 80’s.
We’re told Dean Malenko would have been the other
agent on the tour but he was not there this time around. Paul Heyman was there
as a performer but was also helping Laurinaitis with the booking of the shows
and the matches that took place.
