Possible Change To WWE PPV Announce Team, Cody Rhodes Dating WWE Diva

— WWE officials have discussed modifying the announce team for pay-per-view events, which could begin as soon as TLC.

Internally, Todd Grisham is not getting high marks for his work, which is why Michael Cole was moved to SmackDown. Meanwhile, both Cole and Jerry Lawler reportedly dislike working with Matt Striker. Cole took off his headset during the Survivor Series broadcast to yell at Striker for talking too much.

Punk may end up with the spot for pay-per-view events, but the team would therefore solely consist of Raw announcers and the company doesn’t want SmackDown to come off as a secondary brand.

— Layla cryptically confirmed on her Twitter account last week that she is dating fellow SmackDown Superstar Cody Rhodes.

She wrote, “I have to say I’m the most thankful to have the love of my life bf Cody In my life ….”

She also posted a photo of Rhodes’ dog Dozer, noting, “The true mr.D So thankful for him.”

Finally, it’s interesting to note that Layla and Rhodes are today’s featured Diva and Superstar on

    wouldn’t mind seeing josh matthews get a chance on SD instead of Grish

    Cody is probably a real nice guy and i bet thats a change from the rest of them men from the locker room, maybe a lot of them are meat heads and arrogant where as Cody has a personality a lot different from them. He seems like a nice guy, thats just my guess.

    cole is on smackdown therefore the ppv team would still feature one of their commentators
