John Gaburick back working with WWE

John Gaburick, who recently finished up with Impact Wrestling at the end of 2017, is now back in a new role with WWE according to a report by PWInsider.com.

Gaburick is reportedly in Saudi Arabia right now working on pre-production for the WWE’s upcoming Greatest Royal Rumble special taking place next Friday.

Gaburick was a big part of the early years of the “Tough Enough” series and would later take on a production role with TNA/Impact Wrestling. His responsibilities with the company would increase, including a role with talent relations and then taking on bigger management role after the Anthem purchase and parting ways with Jeff Jarrett.
