Notes on Umaga Push, Prime-time Network Specials & More

According to, at a recent shareholders meeting, Vince McMahon answered a question about Umaga by suggesting he’ll switch brands soon. There have been rumors of Umaga getting a nice push following a brand switch — and I’ve always liked his work — so I’m hoping for a move over to Smackdown, where I think he’ll fit better than ECW.

Also from the meeting, it was announced that the Tribute to the Troops special will air on NBC in prime-time, and MyNetworkTV will air an hour special recap edition of WrestleMania as part of the WWE debut on the network.
