So sayeth Randy Stilton, the real Stinky Cheese Man! (I'm told that, in the UK, my name is actually hilarious.)

JR's not as much getting a promotion as getting a bigger title with less chores to do, as Laurinatis takes over JR's responibilities. I'd assume that hiring and firing of talent is a group decision, so the only change there is that someone else gets to let people know they're fired. If I recall correctly, JR was booking the house shows, so there might be changes there - or they might have already made changes, who knows. Because this has been in the works for so long, I don't think we'll notice much of a change. Except OVW storylines. - thecubsfan. com CMLLBlog

AIM: # 5 Posted on 9.4.04 1209.22 | Instant Rating: 0.89 See this is what I want to happen JR goes away and stay away. Go back to OK and live your old life away, I don't like JR and I think he is one of the reason why the guys that should get the belts aren't or getting the TV time they should get. Go away Good old JR Great Muta is a wrestling GOD!! praise the Great Muta.

If this improves his commentating, then I am all for this change. If this is being done purely to get DDP back into the WWE, then I am all for this change as well. And yes, prepare to see Eugene's new tag team partner next week. LOD 2005! Behold the scary undead powers of WESTERN-TAKER!

Except OVW storylines. So what this really comes down to is that Laurinatis has been training in OVW for the past six months and is now being sent up to WWE! :-) (edited by Snookum on 9.4.04 1554)

According to the Torch, Laurinatis is now the man the wrestlers will go to about time off, injury status updates, travel concerns and their latest paycheck, amongst other concerns I'm sure. Vacations, Car accidents and more!: http://parksg.blogspot.com
So what about if there's a ref bump, RVD has him pinned twice with no ref, and Flair shockingly turns heel by sledgehammering RVD to allow HHH to hit the Pedigree? Err... -Patrick
