Vince McMahon is a big fan of reality television shows, and he wants that on the new WWE Network. Many are speculating that Tough Enough could be one of the first shows added, especially after Bill DeMott posted a teaser message on his Twitter account.
Mike Bennett made his official debut for ROH at Proving Ground, an event held in Boston. He worked a match against Daniel Puder, the former Tough Enough competitor and WWE star, and lost. Bennett is considered a young guy who should be with the company for the next several years.
Prior to becoming the voice of WWE, Michael Cole worked as a journalist for CBS Radio. Presidential nominee Michael Dukakis, who famously lost the election race to George Bush, was his first major assignment. He had to explore the losing side of things in the piece.
Michael Cole will not be on commentary for Smackdown this week. Instead, JBL will be joined on television by Josh Mathews. No word yet on why Cole did not work the event, but there does not appear to be any backstage heat from WWE towards their long time commentator.
Since Miz is someone that the company wants to keep around for a long time, WWE is experimenting with him as a commentator on Smackdown this week, where the former heavyweight champion will be joining Michael Cole and JBL for the entire episode.
WWE purposely had Summer Rae and Rosa Mendes wear similar outfits on Monday Night Raw as a rib to Michael Cole for mixing up the two performers the previous week.
Since they are friends in real life, Michael Cole flew down to Houston this week to do commentary at Reality of Wrestling Christmas Chaos, an event promoted by Booker T. The two of them requested and received permission from WWE to do so.
