John Laurinaitis is scheduled to appear at WWE live events in the U.S. through the August 21st SmackDown tapings from the Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield, CA, which is the SmackDown right after SummerSlam. He is scheduled to team with The Big Show to face John Cena in a handicap match at that event.

The first RAW live event after that taping takes place on Friday, August 24th from the Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau, MO. Cena vs. Big Show in a steel cage and CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship are currently scheduled for that show.

Laurinaitis is still advertised for the RAW tour in Australia in late August through early September. He is also advertised for the September 10th RAW Supershow from the Bell Centre in Montreal, QC.
