Storyline Update on the WWE Announcers Following Lesnar Attack, The Rock Signs On for Disney Movie

Michael Cole

– WWE’s website has posted a storyline update on Michael Cole, JBL and Booker T following Brock Lesnar’s attack on Monday’s RAW. They note that Cole requested to go home to be evaluated by his own doctors and has been diagnosed with a bulging disc at the C6/C67 level as well as severe neck, back and right shoulder pain. Cole did confirm he will be back on next week’s RAW and WWE’s website said he has met with lawyers about possible legal action against Lesnar.

WWE notes that JBL left RAW with some pain in his abdomen but “figured it wasn’t any more serious than anything he had experienced before.” However, they say JBL woke up in the middle of the night in excruciating pain and went to a local hospital where he was diagnosed with an abdominal wall tear. They report JBL underwent surgery on Tuesday but will be back for RAW. Finally, WWE’s storyline update adds that Booker T suffered contusions and general soreness, but no other injuries. He will also be on RAW.

– The Rock revealed on Twitter back in December that he would be starring in Disney’s animated musical “Moana” but today he officially signed on for the movie, as you can see in the photo below. Rock has been at Disney Studios signing a bunch of contracts for the movie. He wrote:

“At DISNEY STUDIOS signing contracts to play the male lead in their next big classic animated musical, #MOANA. Just had an amazing 2hr presentation and it’s easy to see why they’re the greatest story tellers in the world. Im excited.
