– Right now WWE’s mood on hiring new talents is that they’re negative on real athletes and more positive to indie wrestlers but still down on small guys and looking for the bigger physiques.
– WWE looks to be either close to or has just signed a new deal with former announcer and current ESPN personality Jonathan Coachman. The two sides have been discussing a part-time gig where Coach would keep his ESPN job but would do in-studio wrap-arounds for WWE. One idea thrown out would be for him to host a WWE talk show for the WWE Network.
