As we noted before, David Otunga was drafted to Raw as a part of the “Superstar Shake-Up”. However he won’t be joining the Raw commentary team for the next six weeks as he’s filming a movie.
To replace him, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T will be making his return to Monday Night Raw! Below is what WWE posted:
Booker T to temporarily replace David Otunga on Raw commentary team
Shucky ducky, quack quack.
While new Raw commentator David Otunga is spending the next six weeks shooting “Katrina,” an upcoming action film, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T will be temporarily joining Michael Cole and Corey Graves at the Team Red announce desk.
The change comes mere days after the Superstar Shake-up moved Otunga from the SmackDown LIVE broadcast team to Raw, while the red brand’s Byron Saxton went to Team Blue. Booker, a longtime former SmackDown commentator and frequent Kickoff panelist, will now bring his insight — and unending supply of catchphrases — to Monday night’s hottest show until Otunga returns to WWE TV in late May.
Booker T on Raw? We can dig that, suckaaaaaa! Don’t miss Booker T’s return to commentary this Monday night on Raw at 8/7 C on USA Network.
