WWE Plans To Find New Announcers For SUMMERLSAM...By Running A Competition On TikToK?!

WWE puts a lot of emphasis on its social media accounts, but we never expected them to turn to TikTok for the next Michael Cole! Find out what the company has planned for SummerSlam after the jump...

WWE announced today that the company is launching a search for its next great ring announcer on TikTok. Asking users to upload their most entertaining videos using the hashtag #WWEAnnouncerContest, the best performers will earn a trip to SummerSlam at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Saturday, August 21

There, they will serve as a ring announcer at WWE's biggest event of 2021. In the weeks leading up to SummerSlam, WWE will review each video before announcing two winners from the company’s official TikTok channel on August 16. WWE Superstar Big E recorded his own TikTok video to explain how the competition works that you can see below.

"Our engagement on TikTok to date has been incredible and we couldn’t think of a better platform to help us find the next great ring announcer," said Steve Braband, WWE Vice President, Digital in a statement today.

WWE is also looking to discover and recruit its next generation of Superstars via the TikTok Resumes product, and the search will culminate in a multi-day talent tryout in Las Vegas as part of SummerSlam.

We're certainly hoping these winners aren't going to be calling the action all night, but will keep you updated as we learn more. Chances are they'll work the Kickoff show, though nothing is confirmed just yet.
