- Chris Masters vs. Curt Hawkins was taped last night before SmackDown to air on this Thursday’s WWE Superstars on WGN America.

- It was confirmed at last night’s WWE SmackDown tapings that Michael Cole will indeed announce his special referee for WrestleMania 27 on this coming Monday’s RAW.

On a related note, WWE has a poll on their website asking who Cole’s referee will be. The options are Booker T, Jim Ross, Alex Riley, Josh Matthews, Kamala and Shawn Michaels.

- Coming out of last week’s Sin Cara announcement, WWE has gotten a lot of big press in Mexico. This has also led to a spike in ratings for WWE. The recent SmackDown in Mexico did a 9.6 rating while RAW did a 9.3 rating.

    On Smackdown Vickie went over to Cole and asked him to help and he said he will talk to Teddy and try to help her. So i guess it would make sense if he’s managed to get her as his special referee? Not sure where it would lead but in the short term it sounds spot on.

    Like I said the other day I think Riley’s equally a good candidate. He was Miz’s apprentice and Cole loved Miz so it makes sense. I could definitely see Vickie as the referee as well.

    I love to hate both Cole and Vickie.

    I dont think anyone can say they suck cos people hate them so much.

    I think it shud b the raw GM n turn out to be the Rock or someone.

    Surely it’s gonna be Vickie Guerrero. WWE wouldn’t keep their most heelish heel off the Wrestlemania card. Kids love booing the crap out of her.

    Heidenreich, come on wo didn’t see that coming? lol

  • Simon

    It wouldn’t surpise me to see Vickie Guerrero as the guest referee, after all didn’t Lawler continually rip on her when she appeared on Raw?

  • JD

    Crazy idea. Have the referee be the anonymous gm of raw. And out comes Jim Ross…. Then they can go two ways with it. One. He could turn heel and align with Cole. This makes sense since swagger is his trainer. Or he could call Cole a fool and ask why he’d ever side with him over lawler I think that makes perfect sense… No?

    I’m holding out for Doug Gilbert, or Hardcore Holly.

  • Jon

    I hope it loser leaves Raw match because I really can’t stand Cole

    i think its gonna be bill dundee

  • Chris

    If it were just any ol match I would say the ref would be Alex Riley since he was just ‘fired’ BUT this is Wrestlemania. Its got to be someone bigger and better.
