When you think of the early 80's and WWF TV you always have to remember the one man that was on every TV show and that was Mean Gene. He was there for it all as an announcer. From War to Settle the Score all the way to Wrestlemania, Gene has worked thru them all. He has so many great stories that have never been told before.

There was reportedly a "e;widespread rumor"e; within the wrestling indusry last week that current WWE Vice President of Talent Relations John "e;Johnny Ace"e; Laurinaitis was going to be fired. One rumor that blew up within WWE was that Barry Windham was going to be hired to replace Laurinaitis.

Although strong sources within WWE are indicating now that those rumors were never true, those same sources have stated that the confidence Vince and Stephanie McMahon once had in Laurinaitis has been noticably shaken. Many WWE wrestlers, especially the veterans, do not respect Laurinaitis at all and actually mock him frequently behind his back.

The main criticism on Laurinaitis within WWE was that he doesn't have a natural eye for talent at all. As of now, there doesn't appear to be any candidates currently on WWE's staff being considered as front-runners to replace Laurinaitis if he were to be removed from his current position. While the rumor of Windam taking over the position may have been untrue, WWE officials have expressed interest in bringing him in as an agent. The feeling internally right now in WWE is that if a decision was made to remove Laurinaitis, Jim Ross would likely be asked to step in and serve as V.P. of Talent Relations for now (a title he held before Laurinaitis) and help train a replacement. It should be noted that Shane McMahon and Triple H are being considered as the "e;top two"e; heirs to the position, although both are still considered to be a few years away from being taken seriously for taking the role.

According to new reports, the term "e;agents"e; within World Wrestling Entertainment will now be replaced with the term "e;producers."e; The role of WWE agents have always been to be the "e;middle man"e; between the creative team and the wrestlers, so the "e;producers"e; term will further describe the additional work agents did in planning matches and finishes with wrestlers and then critiquing after their respective match.

For those wondering, the "e;press conference"e; in-ring promo with WWE Intercontinental Champion Johnny Nitro and Melina this past Monday night on Raw ran longer due in part to Vince McMahon not being as involved with the show as usual as he was still preparing for his later segments on the program.
