According to a report by The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there has been lots of talk about the future of announcing in WWE. Many feel that fans see Jim Ross (57) and Jerry “The King” Lawler (who turns 60 soon) as “stars” as opposed to other announcers like Michael Cole, Todd Grisham, Josh Mathews and Matt Striker. Vince McMahon reportedly wants all announcers to be colorless in the idea that they aren’t the stars of the show and that the wrestlers are. This is hard to put over now in his eyes since Ross and Lawler will always be looked at as stars and were recently inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Many are interested to see the transition the company will take with the announcers once Ross and Lawler finish up with the company, although that doesn’t appear to be happening anytime soon.
