Former Velocity announcer Steve Romero left WWE a few months ago because his contract had expired and WWE didn’t bother to renew it. After Velocity was cut off the air due to the formation of ECW, his WWE duties consisted international syndication and WWE 24/7. They have a new guy named Jack Korpela who does all that stuff now, and thus Romero wasn’t really needed anymore. Romero is now the weekend sports anchor for WKMG-TV in Orlando, Florida.

Indy wrestlers Johnny Magnun, Blain Rage and Shane Chung had tryouts before the 6/4 Raw in Tampa. All three wrestlers did matches with Jamie Noble before fans arrived. The McMahon’s, Johnny Ace, Triple H, Gerald Brisco, Pat Patterson and Barry Windham all observed them. The three wrestlers come from Dory Funk’s wrestling school in Ocala, Florida.

The ‘Jackass’ angle is still “one hundred percent on” for SummerSlam. As noted earlier, Johnny Knoxville has signed on for the angle.
