The following comes from WWE.com today:
SmackDown LIVE’s David Otunga moved to the Raw announce desk in the Superstar Shake-up Monday night — swapping places with Team Red’s Byron Saxton — but the former WWE Tag Team Champion’s debut alongside Michael Cole and Corey Graves will be delayed for six weeks, as he has been cast in the lead role of a new action franchise, WWE.com has confirmed.
Otunga’s latest film endeavor leaves a temporary vacancy on the Raw commentary team. Who will serve as his replacement?
Stay with WWE.com as more information becomes available on both David’s new movie role and the immediate future of the Raw announce team.
There’s no info on what the “new action franchise” is at the moment, but congrats to David.
TJR Thoughts: He won’t be missed. Those are my thoughts. Elaborate huh? I don’t think Otunga is a good choice to be in that spot at all and I know a lot of fans agree. He really doesn’t say many interesting things on commentary.
As for who might replace him, I don’t think they should have anybody. Just do Cole and Graves. Two man teams are better. Since they will probably pick somebody, I think Jerry Lawler is a possibility. Perhaps Jim Ross, but I think Lawler is more likely.
