Some big changes are being planned for WWE commentary in the coming weeks, and some of the current planned changes have been revealed by the reliable WrestleVotes.
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.

WrestleVotes is reporting that Michael Cole is set to make the move to SmackDown when the brand moves to Fox in October.
In addition to that, with reports that WWE wants each announce team to be entirely separate, Cole is set to be replaced in the lead Raw position by 205 Live and NXT UK announcer Vic Joseph.
It was reported earlier that these changes will see the return of the two-man booth, meaning a couple of the current voices we hear on Raw and SmackDown commentary will likely be gone.
However, it’s worth noting that WrestleVotes has mentioned these plans may change, because let’s face it, Vince McMahon might just wake up one day and decide he dislikes Vic Joseph’s hair or something.
