As noted last week, the plan is to split up the rosters again and there are plans to split up the announce teams which means Corey Graves will not be pulling double duty on two shows.
The insider wrestling news account Wrestlevotes is reporting that the plan is for Michael Cole to be the lead announcer for SmackDown on FOX.
The other news coming out is that Vic Joseph will be the lead announcer for Monday Night Raw. Joseph filled in for Corey Graves a few weeks ago. Joseph has called NXT and 205 Live and does a great job.
The announce team changes are not set in stone but that is reportedly the working idea right now.
No word yet on where Corey Graves will land but there’s speculation that Renee Young could move to SmackDown because FOX likes her and they want her for their studio show that will air on Tuesday’s on Fox Sports 1.
You can expect a lot of changes in the next 4-6 weeks. There is a draft scheduled and there is unhappiness over the low viewership this week and low ratings usually lead to creative changes by Vince McMahon.
The plans as of now for the new announce teams include Michael Cole heading to SmackDown on FOX. I’m also told Vic Joseph is set to become the lead man on Monday Night RAW. Not set in stone, as nothing is with WWE, but this is their working idea.
