Update on WWE’s Announcing Situation, Dreamer’s Storyline and More

– The WWE tapings at Madison Square Garden last week were sold out with just over 12,000 paid and $500,000 coming in. The morale at the show was stronger than usual as SmackDown doesn’t sell out a lot of big arenas.

– There has been a lot of internal talk lately about the future of WWE’s announcing teams. With Jim Ross being 57 years old and Jerry Lawler turning 60 this year, it’s set that Michael Cole, Todd Grisham and Josh Matthews are the lead announcers. Vince McMahon is said to be happy with the situation because he now believes that the announcers should be colorless in the sense that they aren’t the stars but the wrestlers are and there’s a feeling that Ross and Lawler are stars.

– It’s still not a lock that Tommy Dreamer will be leaving WWE next month as the company has offered him a new contract. If WWE sticks with the storyline they had going, Dreamer will have to win the ECW Championship before June 6th, unless they drop it altogether, or bend the rules and have him win it on June 7th at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view in New Orleans.
