153. John Laurinaitis
The in-ring career of John Laurinaitis (Johnny Ace) was better than he got credit for, as while he was a lower card wrestler in the NWA/WCW and one half of a lame tag team with Shane Douglas as the Dynamic Dudes, he emerged as an upper card wrestler, and a very good one with All Japan Wrestling.  

He would become more known in the United States as an executive first in WCW and for over a decade with the WWE where he would be the Director of Talent Relations and while he was not the most beloved man in the locker room, he was a high level executive, which could mean something for this Hall.  It also did not hurt that for a solid year that he was one of the top heel figures in the organization.

The Bullet Points

  • Other Aliases: Johnny Ace
  • Billed From: San Bernardino, California
  • Key Championships Held: AJPW All-Asia Tag Team (2) w/Kenta Kobashi
    AJPW World Tag Team (4) 2w/Kenta Kobashi, 1w/Steve Williams & 1w/Mike Barton
  • Why they will get in: He did work there for over a decade. Not many can say that.
  • Why they won't get in: He is not exactly popular, and that is an understatement.
  • Five Greatest Matches/Moments: 1. Had a five star match with Steve Williams against Kenta Kobashi and Mitsuharu Misawa. (3/4/95)
    2. Had another five star match with Steve Williams against Mitsuharu Misawa and Jun Akiyama (6/7/96)
    3. Won the All Japan World Tag Team Title with Steve Williams (11/5/96)
    4. Named the Director of Talent Relations for the WWE (2001)
    5. It wasn’t pretty, but he defeated John Cena at Extreme Rules (5/20/12)
