Jim Johnston Holds No Ill Will Towards WWE For Firing

Jim Johnston is one of few names to have consistently worked with WWE for over a period of 30 years, which came to an end late in 2017

In a new interview with Newsweek, Johnston detailed his recent relationship with Vince McMahon, and the end of his run with the company. According to Johnston, he could have added much more than he was allowed to in the years prior to his firing from WWE.

"My last few years with WWE were sadly filled with a lot of politics. It was disappointing because I didn't think I could contribute in the way I would have preferred. It was probably best I'm no longer there," said Johnston.

Even though their long-term relationship closed, Johnston says he holds no ill will towards Vince McMahon or WWE. During the interview, he spoke on the lesser time the two worked together before the firing.

"Well, certainly, we didn't spend time together like we used to years ago. In different ways, both of us regretted that but both of us understood the phenomenal growth of the company just prevented that from being a possibility. We got to a point where it was time to move on. I'm good with that, because I was not happy with where things were going musically in the company and I wasn't contributing in the way I wanted to. So when Vince gave me the leaving orders, that was probably the best thing for us both," Johnston said.
