WWE continues to restructure its talent relations department, giving a promotion to John Cone while promoting Jason Jordan within the TV side of the company.

First reported by PWInsider, Cone, also a referee, has gone from being relieved of his senior manager duties to now being second in command to John Laurinaitis in the department.

They reported that Jordan has been promoted to Lead Producer at WWE TV tapings, taking over Laurinaitis' former role. Dave Meltzer confirmed the promotion. After recovering from a career-threatening neck injury and surgery in 2018, Jordan began working backstage in a producer role.

PWInsider also reported that WWE has added some personnel to the department and that Adam Pearce has also moved up the ladder in recent weeks, but didn't have the specifics.

The front office, and talent relations in particular, has undergone a number of changes in the past few weeks as Mark Carrano was fired last week in the wake of the Mickie James "trash bag incident". That follows the unrelated departure of Nicole Zeoli. President Nick Khan has also made changes within the business side on both the revenue and public relations side of the business.
