WWE announced on Thursday that David Otunga's debut on the Raw commentary team has been delayed six weeks due to being cast in a lead role for an action movie.
Below is the press release:
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 an action film with the working title “Katrina,” WWE.com has confirmed.
“Katrina” is set in 2005 New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina and stars Otunga as edgy DEA agent James “World” Lawson.
Otunga’s latest film endeavor leaves a temporary vacancy on the Raw commentary team. Who will serve as his stand-in? Stay with WWE.com as more information on the immediate future of the Raw announce team becomes available.
CJ's Chitchat: Who could possibly fill this spot for the next several weeks? Why not call up Jim Ross? The options aren't exactly plentiful besides maybe the likes of Byron Saxton, Nigel McGuinness, The Miz or R-Truth.
