WWE.com staff writer Craig Tello has issued a public apology to VP of Talent Relations John "Ace" Laurinaitis for comments Tello made towards the WWE exec in an article on last night’s Money in the Bank PPV. In the article, Tello refers to Laurinaitis as Vince McMahon’s "2011 stooge," and the phrase has since been whitewashed from WWE.com. Below is Tello’s apology:
"As a senior WWE.com writer, I would like to publically apologize to Executive Vice President John Laurinaitis and WWE for my use of disparaging terminology in WWE.com’s article covering the events of last night’s Money in the Bank WWE Championship Match.
The term I used was inappropriate for an executive at WWE, Inc. I greatly respect Mr. Laurinaitis and his efforts within the WWE organization." You can read more by clicking on the above link.
