WWE Plans Commentary Shake-Up for SmackDown in 2024: Veteran Exits Imminent

Three Key Points

  • WWE allegedly aims to introduce two-person commentary teams across all platforms in 2024.
  • Michael Cole may conclude his commentary role on SmackDown to become exclusive to Raw.
  • Upcoming specials for Raw and SmackDown feature high-stakes matches and potential surprise returns.

WWE Commentary Transition on the Horizon

Pro wrestling fans following WWE broadcast teams might witness a significant shake-up come 2024. Industry insider Dave Scherer of PWInsider reports that a move towards two-man announce teams is expected, aligning SmackDown’s current three-person table with Raw and NXT’s setup.

Commentary Veterans to Shift Roles

Long-standing voice of SmackDown, Michael Cole, is speculated to transition off Friday nights to focus solely on Monday Night Raw. This strategic shift comes after Cole’s recent stint handling responsibilities for both flagship shows, a doubling up which garnered mixed reactions from colleagues like NXT’s Booker T.

Raw and SmackDown Gear Up for Specials

With the Raw Day 1 event set to feature championship bouts and the possibility of a sensational return—hinted to be a recent AEW departure—the WWE Universe is abuzz. SmackDown’s New Year’s Revolution also promises an intense contest with AJ Styles, Randy Orton, and LA Knight vying for a shot at Roman Reigns‘ title at the upcoming Royal Rumble.
