The recent changes in WWE’s commentary teams have left some commentators hanging. Michael Cole and Corey Graves were moved to SmackDown on FOX from Raw, with no announcement from the company where the blue brand’s commentators Tom Phillips and Byron Saxton would go.
In a photo uploaded on Instagram, Byron Saxton is seen still on his old job but on a different show. Saxton has been moved WWE Main Event, and in the photo, he’s seen with Dio Maddin and Mickie James on commentary.
It is unknown if Mickie James would stay as part of the commentary team for Main Event or not. Saxton has seemingly replaced Vic Joseph on the show.
Saxton had been part of SmackDown’s commentary team with Corey Graves and Tom Phillips. Phillips has been moved to 205 Live where he would be commentating with Aiden English, and to NXT UK with Nigel McGuinness.
The new commentary teams were announced on September 26 by the company. Jerry “The King” Lawler returned to WWE programming as an analyst for Raw and joined Vic Joseph and Dio Maddin on the commentary booth.
