Update On Matt Striker Controversy & NBA-Themed RAW
By Tim Brown | June 05, 2009
-- Neither WWE or Matt Striker have commented publicly on the nude photos of the ECW announcer which surfaced on various websites last week. Word is going around that the photos have been out there for quite some time, but are just now getting attention. Although Striker has been ribbed by his coworkers and given some nicknames, he is not expected to face any punishment by WWE. "Half the girls there have nude photos online," said a former coworker, "so who cares?"
-- Former WWE announcer Jonathan Coachman has been telling friends that he actually came up with the idea of having the wrestlers wear basketball jerseys for the 10-man tag match on RAW last week. One wrestler was quoted as saying: "I had totally forgotten the game was on until I saw the jerseys. And then I said, 'Oh, s--t, the game is on!'"
