Following the Royal Rumble, WWE debuted a new announce team on RAW.
It had been previously reported that a change was coming to the RAW Announce Team after Tom Phillips replaced Vic Joseph as part of the Royal Rumble Announce Team. What wasn’t expected was the addition of Byron Saxton as the third member of the RAW Announce Team, alongside Phillips and Lawler.
On the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed the changes made to the RAW Announce Team.
“So essentially Tom Phillips is replacing Vic Joseph on RAW the decision is a permanent decision it was made in the last week. Byron was always going to be the third guy, the decision was made for Bryon to be there and that’s that. Lawler, who it was initially supposed to be a short-term decision… he’s there for longer term. So, there you go.”
