According to Variety‘s report, starting this Monday, Michael Cole and Wade Barrett will be the new commentators for WWE Raw. While Cole will continue his role on SmackDown, he will be joined by Kevin Patrick and Corey Graves starting on August 11th.
Previously, Patrick and Graves were the announce team for Raw before this change. WWE believes that pairing Patrick with Cole will contribute to his growth as a broadcaster.
This marks a return for Cole as the lead play-by-play announcer on Raw, a role he held for many years before moving to SmackDown. For Barrett, this will be his debut as a commentator on Raw after serving as a commentator for NXT before transitioning to SmackDown in late 2022.
