WWE’s made some vital changes in the past few months. At first it was the surprise retirement of Vince McMahon, followed by Triple H taking over creative and talent relation duties. He later got rid of the latter, but still upholds the creative section.
WWE has now made a new change to their entire system of people who would be the voice of their shows. While ‘The Voice of The WWE’ was a phrase coined for Michael Cole, it looks like there will be new voices joining different shows.
The shuffle will provide a change to the fans and others and was reported by Variety. WWE later confirmed it in their tweet, and also stated who would be on the desk for which show. While WWE confirms that the voice for major WWE PPVs will be Corey Graves and Michael Cole, the voices for other shows have changed.
WWE announced that Kevin Patrick and Corey Graves will be the commentary team for Monday Night Raw. We all know about Graves, but not much is known about Kevin Patrick. He worked as a backstage correspondent, a play-by-play commentator for “WWE Main Event,” and was the host of “Raw Talk.”
A major change happens to Byron Saxton as he changes his role and is joined by a returning Cathy Kelley. Kelley and Saxton will conduct onscreen interviews while Mike Rome will be the ring announcer. Jimmy Smith exits WWE Raw’s commentary team and he posted about it on Twitter.
Vic Joseph and WWE Hall of Famer Booker T will be the commentators for “NXT” going forward. Alicia Taylor is the ring announcer and McKenzie Mitchell will continue as the backstage interviewer. On SmackDown, Michael Cole and Wade Barrett will be the main commentators. Samantha Irvin will serve as the ring announcer, with Kayla Braxton and Megan Morant serving as backstage interviewers.
These changes mean a lot to the WWE and its entire creative team. Every change in the WWE has something new to it, and we would have to dig it, to understand it if it makes sense in the long run or not. Booker T tweeted his feelings, and we would like to know yours, so drop them in the comments.
