Laurinaitis told WWE.com:
"I think I'm being very generous because John Morrison was on a losing streak which he seemed to have broken with a victory over Dolph Ziggler in a match last week. I'm all about giving talent opportunities and I feel that John Morrison has earned an opportunity to compete for the United States Championship."
"As far as Zack Ryder's twitter petition goes, no General Manager in WWE history is more about social media than I am. However, I feel he is going to have to gain many more than 15,000 signatures before I consider giving him an opportunity to compete for the United States Championship. Again, I'm all about giving talent opportunities … when I feel they have earned them."
