Below are a couple of top WWE news stories of the day, involving Cody Rhodes and Michael Cole.

• Undisputed WWE Champion Cody Rhodes made his first successful televised title defense against AJ Styles at Backlash France.

Don’t expect Cody to have the risk of losing the WWE Title until The Rock or Roman Reigns return, as WWE doesn’t have any “big-time” direction for Cody’s title reign.

Here’s what the Wrestling Observer reported:

“Rhodes has no real big-time direction until Rock and Roman Reigns are back in the picture. The other biggest star on the brand is Randy Orton, but they’re doing nothing to tease anything in that direction.”

• In a significant development within WWE’s broadcasting team, Michael Cole, the longtime lead announcer for RAW and Premium Live Events, is reportedly scaling back his managerial responsibilities to prioritize his on-air duties.

According to PWInsider, Cole has opted to “pull back” from his role in managing announcers to dedicate more time and attention to his on-screen commentary duties. This decision marks a notable shift in Cole’s responsibilities within the company.

Stepping into the role of managing announcers in Cole’s place is Sue Cundari, a seasoned veteran within WWE’s talent operations department. Cundari boasts an extensive tenure with WWE, having been a part of the organization since 1995. Her new title as Director, On Air Talent Operations positions her to oversee the management and coordination of WWE’s announcer roster.

Michael Cole’s journey with WWF/E spans over two decades, dating back to his debut with the company in 1997. Since then, he has become a fixture in WWE’s broadcasting landscape, assuming lead announcer duties for RAW in 1998. Cole’s tenure expanded further when he took the helm as the lead announcer for SmackDown upon its inception in 1999.

Throughout his illustrious career, Cole has been synonymous with WWE’s commentary team, lending his voice to countless memorable moments and iconic matches. His decision to refocus on his on-air duties underscores his commitment to delivering top-notch commentary and enhancing the viewing experience for WWE fans worldwide.
