Earlier this week it was ESPN and Jonathan Coachman that broke the news of Seth Rollins being injured and forced to drop the WWE World Heavyweight Title and the announcement for the upcoming tournament. WWE even credited ESPN with the scoop.
On Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez confirmed a report from Court Bauer on MLW Radio that said we can expect to see ESPN breaking more WWE stories in the future with WWE crediting them. Apparently this is part of the new working relationship between the two companies.
It’s also expected that ESPN will provide in-depth coverage from WrestleMania 32 next year.
