The New York Post is reporting that ESPN's Joe Tessitore is joining WWE's announce crew.  He will be paired in a three man booth with Corey Graves and Wade Barrett, presumably on Smackdown.

Tessitore, 53, will also stay at ESPN/ABC, where calls college football and boxing.

WWE declined comment on the story but in asking around, I was told that the deal is in place and will probably be announced later today.  WWE likes to leak stories in the mainstream first.  From what I have been told, it's legitimate.

The Post story stated, "This job is something of a full-circle moment Tessitore, who was the first media client of WWE president Nick Khan."  The story also states that Tessitore has a great relationship with Paul Levesque as well.

I think it's fair to say that this is a big get by WWE/TKO.

Thanks to Marc Downs for his help.
