    And here comes the ‘bring back JR’ posts. Let this be Mauro and Corey’s time.

    • CM Punk

      yeah let mauro and corey have their time, but please get rid of otunga…. id love to see renee young on commentary as well

        Mauro and Corey are both good. But what is awful is 3 and 4 people booths. 2 is good, with 3 on occasions for a guest or analyst for the match. But 4 people all the time?

        i say if Cole does transition backstage, move Tom Phillips from SD to the Raw broadcast team.

      Good ole JR & Jerry lawyer again!

      • Please no. It happened. It was great while it happened. It’s over now. Time for others to take up that mantle.
