Chris Masters vs. Curt Hawkins was taped last night before SmackDown to air on this Thursday’s WWE Superstars on WGN America.
It was confirmed at last night’s WWE SmackDown tapings that Michael Cole will indeed announce his special referee for WrestleMania 27 on this coming Monday’s RAW. On a related note, WWE has a poll on their website asking who Cole’s referee will be. The options are Booker T, Jim Ross, Alex Riley, Josh Matthews, Kamala and Shawn Michaels.
Coming out of last week’s Sin Cara announcement, WWE has gotten a lot of big press in Mexico. This has also led to a spike in ratings for WWE. The recent SmackDown in Mexico did a 9.6 rating while RAW did a 9.3 rating.
