Michael Cole has been working with WWE since 1997 and has dabbled in many roles in the company since then. He has influence behind the scenes, which might become permanent for him soon.
On Wrestling Observer Radio Dave Meltzer was asked how long Michael Cole will be working as a commentator. He said WWE is working on moving him out of the position. Here is what he said:
“Probably not that long, honestly. That’s why they’re hiring so many announcers to… I guess Tom Phillips will probably get the job, so then people — I don’t want to say they’ll wish for Michael Cole, but they probably wouldn’t like Tom Phillips in that spot either.”
Changes are inevitable, so Michael Cole eventually leaving the commentary team will happen. We will have to wait and see what happens.
