No, that’s not a typo.
Per an announcement made on Instagram Wednesday night, John “Big Johnny” Laurinaitis — the former executive vice president of Talent Relations and former permanent general manager of both Raw and Smackdown — is engaged to Kathy Colace, managing partner and founder of JBN & Associates, LLC. She’s also Nikki and Brie Bella’s mom.
John Laurinaitis is engaged to the Bella Twins’ mom. Let that sink in for a second.
If we’re talking People Power, this could be Big Johnny’s masterstroke. Take a second to think about how that works out. If John Laurinaitis marries Kathy Colace, that makes him the Bella Twins step-dad. It also makes him Daniel Bryan’s stepfather-in-law. If John Cena ends up marrying Nikki Bella, the man Cena insulted so thoroughly becomes his stepfather-in-law. And hey, don’t forget that Laurinaitis’ brother is Animal, one half of the legendary Legion of Doom, which connects the Bella Twins and the f*cking Road Warriors in the same family tree.
I know Laurinaitis is a divisive figure in the wrestling world, so I’ve provided a series of reaction GIFs. Pick the one that best applies to your emotional state:
We wish both sides of the engagement the best in their future endeavors.
