Michael Cole, considered to be one of the workhorses in WWE because he rarely takes time off and does so much behind the scenes, will not be at Monday Night Raw on 10/2. WWE noted that Cole will be attending his son’s wedding in Denver. Well, that is certainly a good reason to take a day off from work.
Smackdown Live announcer Tom Phillips will be taking his spot for one week. This could be Phillips chance to prove himself to Vince McMahon since there had been talk of Cole wanting to phase himself out so he could take a larger backstage role. This would only be the second time that Cole has taken a week off during his 20 years with the company.
Raw will feature Seth Rollins vs. Braun Strowman and The Miz defending the Intercontinental Championship against Roman Reigns.
