We have said this so many times and will continue to say it that the WWE is a place of uncertainty and a team of unpredictability. What always comes out to be true are what the Universe had thought that won’t work out anymore.
Recently, Corey Graves and David Otunga were made commentators of RAW and SmackDown Live which means that the previous officials of the seats Jerry Lawler and Booker T were left free from the position. Well, this simply implies that the roles of Jerry Lawler and Booker T has been changed and now they are to occupy the position of analyst on pre-shows of Raw and SmackDown, and on the kickoff shows for major pay-per-views.
This is quite impressive anyway. Below are official statement issued by the WWE:
“It’s a New Era for the entire landscape of WWE, which continues to change and evolve with the WWE Brand Extension Draft. That includes the announce teams for WWE programming. The teams for Raw, SmackDown, “WWE Superstars” and WWE Main Event are all experiencing a major shakeup, including one major voice changing shows and several rising commentators being inserted into the lineup.
The new announce teams for WWE’s New Era will feature Michael Cole, Corey Graves and Byron Saxton Monday nights on Raw, while Mauro Ranallo, JBL and David Otunga handle the commentary for SmackDown Live every Tuesday night.
Also receiving a makeover will be the announce teams for WWE Superstars and WWE Main Event. Both shows will be led by Tom Phillips, and he will be joined each and every week by Graves on WWE Superstars and Otunga on WWE Main Event.
UPDATE: In addition to the commentary booth updates on Raw, SmackDown Live and more, WWE Hall of Famers Booker T and Jerry “The King” Lawler will bring their decades of experience in sports-entertainment to recurring Pre-Shows and Kickoffs as key analysts, among other names still to be announced”.
