Found May 13, 2012 on Wrestlechat.net:

Current ESPN announcer and former WWE announcer Jonathan Coachman spoke with HutchNews.com and says he was held back because of his time with WWE:

“It really held me back for a while. There were certain people (ESPN executives) that were fearful of some negative backlash that they hired a guy best known for wrestling. It was frustrating. I knew where I should be, at and I knew where I wasn’t. But I also knew the reason.”

Coach also talked about getting physical:

“It was scary first time I did something physical. I was terrified the most, though, when I hit Shane McMahon with four chair shots to the back. I was terrified I was going to hurt him. He is a tough guy, but you don’t want to hurt the boss’ son.”
