Joey Styles’ Web site, 1Wrestling.com, has posted that Joey will in fact be doing play by play for Taboo Tuesday tonight in San Diego.
WWE.com interviewed Styles here. An excerpt:
WWE.com: Why are you here and who invited you?
Joey Styles: I was invited by Kevin Dunn (Executive Vice President of WWE Television Production). Because Jonathan Coachman will be getting his head kicked in during his match tonight, there was an opening at the announce table, so I was brought in for the night to do play-by-play. Being a huge Internet wrestling fan, I couldn’t think of anything that would be more fun than Taboo Tuesday – the interactive pay-per-view. I think it’s a great idea to have fans pick the stipulations for the matches. I’m a little surprised the fans didn’t get to choose an announcer for Taboo Tuesday, but I like to think that if fans did get to choose, they would have chosen me.
In fact, in a recent Inside Pulse reader poll, over 50% of those responding to a “Who should replace J.R.?” question chose Joey Styles from a list of several possibilities.
