So they're going to attempt to draw 100 thousand people to AT&T stadium next year for Wrestlemania.

They'll probably do it too. They've never had a WrestleMania in a venue that could hold 100,000 plus.

My friend works for WWE as a commentator under a stage name that I continue to forget. He's like a 6-foot guy in his mid-20s with a buzzcut.

Holy shit! Your friend is Tom Phillips. He's the lead announcer on Smackdown.

Yeah, I'm almost sure that's it. I did broadcasting with him at Penn State. Great dude.

Oh yes, that's Tom. He was one of the better broadcasters I worked with in school, and he also did stand-up and sketch comedy while he was there, so I'm not surprised he's done well with this gig. I've seen some video of him and it's funny stuff.

I wasn't watching Smackdown too much because it was on Friday nights. WWE recently moved SD to Thursday nights, so I watch it every week. Phillips is definitely a good announcer. I think he's actually a perfect fit for WWE. I hope he sticks around for a long time. Good pro wrestling announcers are hard to find.

His bio is pretty cool over at WWE's website. I'd give you a link, but I'm a spaz.

I don't understand the difference between things like Main Event and Raw and SmackDown so I don't know the hierarchy here.

If it's anything like WCW was: PPV Events are once a month, Raw is the flagship show that airs Monday nights and SmackDown is the less spectacular, but still decent show that airs on Thursdays. (Again, that's how it went for WCW, at least PPV > Nitro > Thunder)

-Raw is WWE's flagship show. It debuted in 1993 and airs live for 3 hours Mondays on the USA network.
-Smackdown is WWE's "B" show. It debuted in 1999. It is a 2 hour show that is recorded on Tuesdays and is shown on Thursdays on the SyFy channel.
-Main Event is WWE's "C" show and is also taped on Tuesdays, but airs on Wednesday nights on the WWE Network.

WWE PPV's run almost every month, but the major ones are Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, Summer Slam and Survivor Series. WrestleMania is the Super Bowl of pro wrestling.

Main Event used to air on the Ion channel, but now it has been relegated to the WWE Network. WWE Superstars is a compilation show that also runs on the WWE Network. That show used to air on WGN America. And finally, there's NXT, which is WWE's developmental organization. That airs on the WWE Network too.
