To update the Joey Styles situation further, he was flown out today to meet with Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn about taking over the lead announce position on RAW. There is talk that if all goes well he could debut as soon as tonight’s PPV. This is pretty shocking as just a few days ago the WWE office had no interest in using him. Styles has also always said he would never return to wrestling full-time and would always work for his website.
The feeling now is that they will drop the Jim Ross storyline due to the Steve Austin falling out. Jim Ross’ job will not be on the line during tonight’s PPV.
Styles is now believed to be the only man WWE thinks can fill Ross’ spot as they have not been impressed with The Coach.
More on this breaking story shortly.
