Jim Ross Developing New WWE Announcer, Backstage News On AW, WWE-Japan



jim-ross

- Jim Ross is calling mostly the main events on WWE NXT because it’s considered a developmental show and the idea is to develop Byron Saxton as a play-by-play announcer.

- Regarding AW’s Kobe Bryant rape case reference on RAW two weeks ago, he reportedly had been told that he was “saying nothing” at ringside while on the mic and that they wanted him to be the AW that he was in FCW, when he impressed everyone with his verbal ability.

- It’s said that WWE is going to reformat their operations in Japan. Right now, WWE has everything on delay with RAW and SmackDown airing ten days later with Japanese subtitles.
