WWE announced that Jonathan Coachman is the newest member of the Raw broadcast team. Coachman will join Michael Cole and Corey Graves on the Raw team beginning tonight. Read the official announcement at WWE.com.
Powell’s POV: Booker T is out and will return to his role of being a panelist. Booker was given the role on a temporary basis as a replacement for David Otunga, who was moved to Raw in the Superstar Shakeup, yet never actually joined the team, as he was off making a movie and the company opted to keep Booker in the role. Booker is a fun personality, but he has struggled as a color commentator. Coachman’s long run with ESPN came to an end and WWE provided him with a soft landing.
