Backstage Update On WWE Making Announce Team Changes Ahead Of FOX Launch

Update: FOX Wants Renee Young, Corey Graves On Announce Team Rumors, Vic Joseph/RAW

In a follow up to our previous headline about WWE’s announce teams being shuffled up in response to the launch on FOX, Corey Graves joked on Twitter that he is “retiring” amid all the rumors.

The @WrestleVotes Twitter account further clarified saying that the plan as of now is for Graves to join Michael Cole on Smackdown.

It’s unknown how the others would fit in as Renee Young was said to be a “favorite” of FOX and another report suggested that WWE would be transitioning to two-person commentating booths so this would leave multiple personalities without a role.

A separate report also noted that Vic Joseph would become the “lead man” on WWE Raw starting next month and that none of these individuals would be pulling double duty and instead they would be exclusive to one brand or the other.

We will keep you posted right here at as more information becomes available regarding the announce team changes and other changes WWE has in store for the move to FOX.
