Recently hired announcer Mike Adamle has had a reputation for being bad on live TV. According to Dave Meltzer in the most recent Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Adamle was so bad when he worked as a sportscaster in the Chicago, Illinois market that local radio personality Steve Dahl would encourage people to tune in to his show so they could laugh about how bad that he messed things up. Adamle was brought into WWE to work in the Gene Okerlund role.

World famous ring announcer Michael Buffer has always had a bad reputation from wrestling personalities dating back to his days when he worked regularly for WCW. His reputation apparently came with him when he worked WWEâ<80><99>s Royal Rumble pay-per-view a couple of weeks ago. Jim Ross said he didnâ<80><99>t speak to him but Jerry Lawler did and had the same negative reaction towards him as everyone did in WCW when he worked there.

Since the departure of Dave Lagana, Ed Koskey has been handling the booking in ECW, reports Dave Meltzer. Dusty Rhodes is working as the idea man, however, the show will continue with a heavy influence from SmackDown, meaning that Michael Hayes will decide the direction for both shows.
