A few of the wrestling news sites are claiming that top WWE superstars such as Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker requested that JR call their match at WMXXVI and were upset that he wasn't given a bigger role. Ross even wrote in his blog that Vince McMahon didn't make any time for him during WrestleMania weekend.
JR is great on commentary and has shown his loyalty to the WWE, but isn't it time to move on? The IWC has been clamoring for "new blood" in the main events and the WWE has responded with WWE NXT and more changes to come with the upcoming draft. Why wouldn't they look to change announcers too.
I don't understand. Why the uproar? Companies change staff according to their needs. School systems will replace teachers and administrators if they are not performing up to par. Government officials can be voted out. But how dare the WWE replace JR! People seem to forget that JR wasn't taken off of TV. He had another Bells Palsy attack. JR has stated that he more than likely will not be "camera-ready" for the WWE.
Quite frankly I'm tired of the whining. I can understand having a great job and not wanting to give it up, but please stop whining. Personally , I thought JBL was great on commentary but I don't think they will be able to get him off the links.
The WWE may need to tweak the announcer line-up, just like they tweak their roster of wrestlers and divas. A fresh start can be a good thing.
