Earlier in the week the reliable Twitter source WrestleVotes reported that WWE was considering reverting back to the traditional two-man commentary booths for when Smackdown moves to FOX next month.
The report stated that Vic Joseph, current 205 Live and NXT UK commentator will be moving to Raw and working as the lead play-by-play on the red brand, whereas Michael Cole will be moving to Smackdown on FOX,
For the last few years, Graves has been working both Raw and Smackdown shows, but will be becoming exclusive to the blue brand next month.
Relaxing everyone, Corey Graves is not retiring. However, the plan as of this Tuesday was that he is moving to SmackDown on FOX along with Michael Cole. And he will only appear on SD. No more double duty for Graves.

This is interesting as it was reported last week that FOX were very high on Renee Young and wanted her to be exclusive to the network.
However, Young might be removed from commentary altogether, instead hosting WWE’s new studio show on FS1.
Vic Joseph’s planned commentary partner on Raw is not yet known. Some have suggested that Tom Phillips could move over to Raw and join the NXT UK announcer in the coming weeks.
