What’s the story?
RAW goes to the O2 Arena in London next week. WWE has planned a big surprise for anyone watching in the home, according to SEScoops.
As opposed to Jonathan Coachman, it will be WWE Hall of Famer Booker T handling commentary duties for the red brand. Michael Cole and Corey Graves will, obviously, retain their positions behind the commentary desk.
In case you didn’t know…
Jonathan Coachman has been an integral part of WWE because the mid 90s. From the backstage interviewer, to a commentator to an on-screen character, he’s used it all for the company.
Coachman stepped away from his WWE role in 2008 and moved on to ESPN where he embarked on a really successful career. Needless to say, he’d return to WWE in January 2018, to restore Booker T.
Booker T is really a man who needs no introduction, and is really a legend in most sense of the word.
The heart of the matter
While fans were divided over Booker T on commentary, they have been more universally vocal about Jonathan Coachman behind the desk. Obviously, certain fans haven’t really been fans of Coachman since he came back and subsequently started handling commentary duties.
That said, it is as yet not known why Coachman will not be behind the desk next week. It had been mentioned during RAW but no reason was ever given. In the eyes of numerous fans, Booker T is likely to be an improvement. He’s expected to handle these duties only on this one occasion.
RAW goes to London in a few days, where Booker T will man the booth. Prepare for his brand of classic humour. If Jason Jordan makes a get back in a few days, Booker T will surely snap.
I never thought I’d say this, but Booker T is a lot, much better than Jonathan Coachman. Especially when the announcers start arguing, it distracts from the action in the ring.
At the very least Booker T is really a riot when he speaks.
