News on Michael Cole’s Storyline, Talk of JR Returning, WWE on Facebook

– The storyline that Michael Cole is having his first match at WrestleMania 27 isn’t correct as Cole actually teamed with Jerry Lawler on the July 28th, 2008 RAW against Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase in a tag team title match.

– There has been a lot of talk about Jim Ross being brought back to announce WrestleMania but he was expected to call last year’s show and didn’t. There has been no word yet on the announce team for this year’s show but we do know Booker T will be one.

– As of the end of February WWE is currently the #5 ranked retailer on Facebook, behind Victoria’s Secret, Victoria’s Secret Pink, Adidas and Lacoste. The only other sports franchise in the top 25 is the NFL but WWE is almost doubling them in number of fans.

    If he’s wording it as his “first match at Wrestlemania,” then he’s absolutely correct. He’s never wrestled at Wrestlemania.

    Cole never even got in the damn ring in that Tag match. So It will be Cole’s FIRST MATCH

    @Kris. and also, its also his first solo match.
    WWE has often ignored tag team matches and battle royals etc when talking about undefeated streaks by wrestlers, so its pretty normal that they would ignore a tag team match in this case as well.
    I dont particularly remember that match anyway, but I assume Jerry did the leg work and Cole was probably in the ring for all of five seconds.

    JR and Booker T would be a good announce for WrestleMania…But, JR should come back full time. By the looks of it though, it doesn’t seem possible at the moment. But hey, anything can happen in the WWE. We thought The Rock would never return to the ring, guess we can be caught off guard.
