WWE To Make Commentary Changes?
According to a report by Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the WWE is looking to add a little more diversity to its commentary teams. The WWE have already added a female referee; a company first, the company is said to have two Hall of Famers in mind for the roles.
At present time, both RAW and SmackDown LIVE have Corey Graves, who is pulling double duty currently; teaming with Johnathan Coachman and Michael Cole on RAW, and Byron Saxton and Tom Phillips on SD Live.
Meltzer reported that WWE is currently hiring based on attracting certain demographics, noting that the promotion could look to add women to the color commentary teams.
There have been no names officially mentioned; many believe that both Beth Phoenix and Lita are heavy favorites for the roles. Phoenix recently called the Mixed Match Challenge tournament, along with the first WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal.
Lita, who has taken part in the preshows for some WWE/NXT pay-per-views, also did play-by-play during the Mae Young Classic, alongside fellow Hall of Famer “Good Ol’ JR” Jim Ross.
