WWE.com announces Kofi as the new IC champ
Remember when WCW started their downward spiral after Bischoff spoiled Mankind's title win? This is kinda like that. You want to keep viewership high, don't spoil it before hand. They're just acknowledging to the general public (ie, the vast majority of their audience that don't read dirt sheets) that the show is taped. This is gonna kill ratings when they're so desperate to gain them.
And since someone is going to latch onto my "downward spiral comment" no, WWE isn't going to go downhill because of this.
