"I work behind the scenes, take care of all the details, whatever needs to be done for the television production and Pay-Per-Views, and I'm just happy do be doing it after 32 years in the business," said Lauer. "Another way to look at it and how I describe it in my book would be 'WWE concierge'." You can listen to the full interview at this link.
