• Latest Plan Regarding Jerry Lawler’s RAW Replacement

As we have noted before, Jerry Lawler being a part of the RAW commentary team isn’t going to be a long term thing, according to ProWrestlingSheet.

It was being said that former WWE Women’s Champion Mickie James is going to replace Lawler on commentary, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

According to Brad Shepard, Tom Phillips is expected to replace Lawler in December:

“According to a source in WWE, the company has Tom Phillips working on other projects and he is expected to join the Raw commentary team and replace Lawler as of early December – this was the plan as of Thursday of last week.”
