WWE News: John Laurinaitis Initiated Slander Investigation in NXT Prior to Administrative Leave

— Prior to being put on an indefinite administrative leave as a result of misconduct allegations against him, WWE Senior VP of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis initiated a slander investigation against two WWE referees, according to sources.

— At least three NXT referees were set to be called up to the main roster earlier this year, however, this did not happen when two main roster referees – believed to be Charles Robinson and Jason Ayers – caught wind of the promotions and reportedly convinced Laurinaitis not to move forward with the move. Laurinaitis then shared these details with NXT Talent Relations, which led to the slander investigation. Had the promotion occurred, sources tell us that it would have led to a significant increase in salary for the NXT referees.
