PWInsider.com is reporting that Joey Styles will no longer be doing commentary for ECW television shows and is being replaced by former American Gladiators host and the latest addition to WWE’s TV team Mike Adamle. Adamle starts his new duty with today’s television tapings. Till yesterday he was just doing random backstage interviews at RAW and on pay-per-views.
According to PWInsider, Styles will be moving to a new role within the company. Joey started with the company on November 1st 2005 after appearing earlier that year doing play by play for ECW One Night Stand. In November, he signed a five year deal with the company and was moved to RAW until he ‘quit’ during an angle around seven months later. He then moved full time doing ECW commentary when WWE relaunched the brand.
Joey Styles is now going to be part of WWE.com in some sort of way. We should have more soon. Styles will not be headed to SmackDown! and Mike Adamle will now be announcing ECW with Tazz. This is unreal.
