In a rather interesting development, Chael Sonnen, who is currently the lead commentator for GFW, is set to meet with Michael Cole when WWE does a Smackdown taping in Portland on August 11. There are talks that Sonnen has long been interested in joining the promotion and working as an on screen talent. He definitely has the passion and the talent for the job.

A very interesting bit of information was revealed by Summer Rae during an interview to promote The Marine 4 movie recently. She stated that upon graduating college, she got a job with a plumbing company before focusing on her career. The blonde bombshell was essentially a plumber since she laid copper pipes and PVC. Summer also stated that she was certified to use a forklift, which is quite different than what she does now in WWE.

When Corey Graves was forced to retire as an in ring performer, WWE gave him another job by putting him at the commentating table. They are now going to start using him in a different manner. Graves will be hosting a show called Culture Shock, where he goes around to various locations that the company does live events in. He'll visit the Marvel comics headquarters, a tattoo parlor on the lower east side of Manhattan and more.

Apparently, Rosa Mendes has much more business savvy than fans have given her credit for. Instead of finding some food and going straight back to the hotel after live events, the longtime WWE diva goes to her second job. Rosa has been hosting parties at clubs while on tour with the company. She has an agent that sets things up for her. It is considered a very smart move as she gets paid to do very minimal work at the clubs.

When the company decided to move him from the Monday Night Raw commentating table to Smackdown's lesser watched crew, it became clear to observant people that Jerry Lawler was being demoted by WWE. His job security, though, remains fairly high. He still has name value and a good amount of fans. Plus, management is afraid that another wresting promotion will sign Lawler and team him up with Jim Ross.
