Recently, WWE had decided to mix the cards on the table, as it does now and then, moving from Raw to SmackDown, and on the contrary, some members of the comment team, assigning to the red brand the beloved duo formed by veteran Michael Cole and his shoulder Pat McAfee, while on the blue show he put Corey Graves and Wade Barrett, leaving Vic Joseph and Booker T at NXT.

But things are about to change further, as reported by Ryan Glasspiegel of the New York Post, who talked about the fact that ESPN announcer Joe Tessitore will join the WWE comment team in a few weeks in the summer. According to some sources, Weaver will stay with ABC and ESPN since he does football and boxing, so they’ll still need him apparently.

Reporter Ryan Glasspiegel also reported that Joe Tessitore will be joining Corey Graves and Wade Barrett at the Friday Night SmackDown comment table, although he wasn’t sure that he could start this way, stating that apparently he could also go a bit to Raw and then settle with them to SmackDown later, although the WWE officially announced that instead he will be right at the table of the blue show.

Joe Tessitore joins WWE

"STAMFORD, Conn., July 9, 2024 – WWE today announced that Joe Tessitore, one of the most complete and veteran voices in sports television, will join the company as a play-by-play broadcaster beginning this summer.

In his role, Tessitore will work alongside analysts Wade Barrett and Corey Graves. Michael Cole and Pat McAfee will remain teamed up. “Whether it’s a world title fight that’s got the globe buzzing or a college football rivalry that’s grabbed the nation’s attention, Joe’s voice provides that big event feel each time he is behind the microphone,” said WWE Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque.

“We’re excited for Joe to join legendary WWE broadcaster Michael Cole and our esteemed announce team, bringing his signature energy and meticulus preparation to our WWE telecasts each week”. “It’s an honor to be a part of WWE.

The recent success and trajectory are undeniable,” said Tessitore. “Being there at WrestleMania XL, one could feel it – from Cody, Seth, Roman and The Rock, to creative and production, these are some of the very best storytellers in TV.

Corey and Wade are absolute stars and it is my privilege to join their team. Pat and Cole are just magical together and Cole is the greatest to ever sit in that chair. As a lifelong viewer, I’m humbled to join this team and to serve our fans”.
