There were plans over the weekend to put the WWE Tag Team Championship on Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro during the fatal four way match at TLC. No word on why management changed their minds and kept the belts on Cody Rhodes and Goldust.
There are talks that Natalya Neidhart could be winning the WWE Divas Championship tonight after the backstage incident between AJ Lee and the Access Hollywood host. AJ was initially supposed to retain the belt at the pay per view.
On Monday Night Raw, WWE announced that Dolph Ziggler and Fandango will be doing the kickoff match at the TLC pay per view. Neither guy has been given much of a push, and there is not a lot of history between the two of them.
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.
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.
During Monday Night Raw, a peculiar scene took place where JBL, Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole were taking pictures of themselves. That segment was done because Vince McMahon wanted to take a jab at Barack Obama for doing that at the funeral of Nelson Mandela.
In an attempt to try to give him some momentum, Wade Barrett is being repackaged by WWE yet again. The former Nexus star is receiving a new gimmick, and it is being said that he will be using the Bad New Barrett character seen on the JBL and Michael Cole show.
