That’s always nice to hear. One of the interesting stories from this year has been all of the changes taking place backstage in WWE. The company has seen more shakeups in the last few months than in recent years and it is not surprising that it will take time to adjust to the new reality. Some have done better than others though, and now we know a bit more about the changes.

According to, both John Cone and Jason Jordan, who have recently been promoted to higher positions backstage in WWE, are receiving high praise from various sources in the company. Earlier this year, Cone replaced the recently departed Mark Carrano as the second in command in the talent relations department under John Laurinaitis. Jordan had been working as a producer for over a year before being promoted to lead producer in April.

These changes were part of the reshaping of WWE’s backstage structure as new company President Nick Khan continues to take over more power in the promotion. Laurinaitis has returned to his position as Head of Talent Relations, though it is not clear how much this will mean for the company in the future. Other non-wrestlers have been added to the department in recent weeks as well.

You might have seen them before. Check out Cone and Jordan doing various other things:

John Cone responds to accusations of fast count: Raw Exclusive, June 15, 2020

John Cone recaps Falls Count Anywhere incident: Raw Exclusive, July 1, 2019

An overzealous Jason Jordan interrupts Roman Reigns: Raw, Jan. 8, 2018

Kurt Angle reveals Jason Jordan is his long-lost son: Raw, July 17, 2017

Opinion: This is the kind of response that can make things feel a bit more positive. What matters most is that the wrestlers are happy with the situation and that the new team is efficient, as you could have quite a few problems with the wrong lineup in place. This could be a nice upgrade for the company, as they are going to need to make some adjustments coming out of the pandemic restrictions.
