Who is Savannah, you ask? I also asked. Asian backstage announcer, former NXT season one ring announcer. The existence of Ashley Valence and Jamie Keyes taking over as NXT ring announcer explains this future endeavoring, although Savannah was recently doing backstage interviews on RAW.
Ironically, Savannah beat her replacement, Jamie Keyes, in the first round of the recent FCW Divas Championship tournament. You'd think they could have given her at least one match on Superstars or something but then again, they haven't let Serena wrestle on TV either and she's probably one of the best female wrestlers on the roster.
Originally posted by graves9What about Wade Barrett? He's still employed.
Only because the new GM re-hired him! He was still "fired".
Josh Matthews getting fired would be awesome because then he could go to TNA and replace Mike Tenay and reform the greatest announce combo in the history of professional wrestling. (Or is Mike Tenay unfireable since his name is the phonetic pronunciation of the company's initials?)
How many fans would know his name? I wager the news item was mostly for the smarks (who have a higher population density online) and they only need one sentence to get them going. Though I half-expect him to be on Confidential, yeah.
