Jim "Good Old J.R." Ross, the WWE's lead commentary guy for SmackDown!, posted an update on his blog with a brief mention of the annual work he does voicing THQ's wrestling products. And here is that update!
The next round of THQ voice overs is slated to start within the next week or so. It will be anxious to see who makes the roster for the next Smackdown vs. Raw video game. There has been some internal changes within THQ and it will be interesting to see if it affects the lines we read in announcer mode for the next game.
So unless he's going in to do commentary for the upcoming Legends of Wrestlmania game, that's your confirmation that we'll see a WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2010 at some point. Not that this should come as a surprise. I think it's pretty obvious that such a popular series would continue. More interesting, however, is the talk of internal changes. Could he just be referring to some personnel moves that have him dealing with different folks? Or is THQ planning something larger for its next SmackDown! game?
I'm going to guess that we'll find out sometime around July or so.
