Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter- We noted before that WWE recently hired announcer Tom Hannifan to work on NXT. He just graduated from Penn State last year and did sports announcing for the Big 10 network. He has been described as both bright and green, both of which are to be expected.
We also reported that WWE signed Renee Paquette, who worked for The Score in Canada hosting the post-RAW show. She's being discussed for a backstage interviewer role but right now she's going to be visiting WWE headquarters once a week to do studio work. She will also be doing work on pay-per-views in some way.
- Despite recent creative changes involving CM Punk and the WWE Title, The Wrestling Observer reports that as of this week Punk vs. The Rock for the WWE Title is still scheduled for January's Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Plans for The Rock's opponents can always change but it's a lock that he will main event both the Rumble and WrestleMania 29.
