Missing Links on Tommy Dreamer, Former ECW Owner Retiring, Joe’s Contract & More

JR’s latest Q&A covers topics from Shawn Michaels to the IWC. In a new blog entry, the Raw announcer talks about Randy Orton landing on his head on Raw, WWE’s international growth, throws Lance Cade’s name out there as a possible dark horse King of the Ring winner, writes about Mike Adamle and more. On Joey Styles, Ross writes: “Joey Styles, who, in my opinion, has been an excellent television announcer for years, has left ECW, as many of you know, and will be taking his skills to www.wwe.com and will be involved in providing content to the site or at least that’s how I understand it. I think it is imperative that for the WWE’s website to continue to grow, that more people with product knowledge and ‘wrestling in their blood’ be involved and Joey certainly fits that criteria. If Joey’s job description is close to as mentioned here, Styles will remain attached to the product by attending the Monday and Tuesday television events, not to mention the pay per views. Joey joining the www.wwe.com team is really big for that group, as Joe will being great passion and a through understanding of the product to the table.”

In an interview on KFNS.com, TNA World Heavyweight Champ Samoa Joe said that he expects to come to terms with TNA on some outstanding issues regarding trademarks. (PWInsider says that Joe will be retaining the rights to his name.)
