Jerry Lawler's Raw Role is Temporary; Futures of Tom Phillips & Byron Saxton Unclear


— Jerry Lawler’s return to commentary or as a contributor is a “surprise”, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Putting Lawler in this role - who might still possibly better than anyone in his niche role is not seen as a typical Vince move, perhaps due to Jerry’s age (he turns 70 later this year). It was noted that this move was considered “temporary.”

— There has been no word on the future of either Tom Phillips or Byron Saxton, though with Vic Joseph and Did Maddin moving to Raw, it leaves only Aiden English on the 205 Live commentary team. The future of 205 Live is also up in the air as it is temporarily going to go ahead after Friday’s Smackdown and air on the WWE Network but no final, long term decision on the show has yet been made.
