Article featuring the latest news on the press release regarding the new structure of WAMMA, the new sanctioning body. Interesting that they will have a sportswriters poll regarding the rankings just like the AP poll, but odd that the organization has 3 Vice Presidents. Check it out.

From the link:
Vice President: Bill Goldberg

THAT Bill Goldberg? (Who I less-than-affectionately call "Iceberg") They can't be serious! Most of the rest I like (some good columnists on the rankings list, I'm a big fan of Todd Martin's wrestling recaps) but as noted at the end, the question really is which organizations will actually use it.

Andrews is the best sports doctor in the country today, so that is great addition. I don't understand Bill Goldberg, but I heard he is a pretty educated guy so we will see.

I like the journalists they picked, though I think Dave Meltzer is qualified and could have been considered.

I'm not quite sure what the whole point of this organization will be, but time will tell. I also think they should have a certified Board of Officials, and it should probably be headed by John McCarthy. But they need to have the same requirements for all officials and that would be a good way to do it.
