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.
