Announcer Speculation for WrestleMania, Vince High on Cole-Lawler, More

– WWE is not concerned about the Georgia Dome in Atlanta being full for WrestleMania as ticket sales have topped 50,000 and business signs for the city are considered strong.

– It’s said that Vince McMahon is loving the current Michael Cole vs. Jerry Lawler storyline as he gets to live vicariously through Cole. Most of Cole’s key lines on TV are fed to him by Vince. The current angle with Cole and Lawler is being patterned after Lawler’s most famous angle ever, the one in the early 80’s with comedian Andy Kaufman.

– There is some speculation as to who will be announcing WrestleMania 27 as the feeling is it doesn’t make much sense to have Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole call most of it and then work a match against each other. Jim Ross is always being speculated on for a return but at last year’s WrestleMania, early plans were for him to announce but he didn’t. Shawn Michaels and Undertaker even requested that Ross work the pay-per-view but it wasn’t the direction that Vince McMahon wanted.

    I’d love for Jim Ross to call the ppv. JBL would also be pretty cool, although I doubt this will happen.

    Well, do ya think Vince can live vicariously enough through Cole to make Cole NOT sound like a whiny bitch every time he opens his mouth?

    Black Snow, James Ross & Joseph Styles = EPIC WIN!!!

  • Evil Doink

    PLEEEZE put Ross and Styles in! But instead, we will get some combination of Josh Mathews, Booker T, Todd Grisham and/or Matt Striker. Yuck!!

  • Jon-Jon

    I hope they decide to throw Styles in there. It’s been to damn long since we’ve heard an apprpriate OH MY GOOODDD!!!

    Vince should just be an on-screen character again. It was a lot funnier that way. All his sex scandals and what not, lol. Obviously he can’t do that with PG though.

    I knew Vince was high on something.
