During the Superstar Shake-Up, it was announced that David Otunga and Byron Saxton would be switching places on Raw and Smackdown.

However, Otunga then announced that he is going to be shooting a movie, and will be off television for six weeks. As such, WWE will be replacing Otunga with a former World Champion and commentator who we hoped was going to replace JBL on Smackdown.


WWE Hall of Famer Booker T will be temporarily joining Michael Cole and Corey Graves at the Team Red announce desk.

The change will only be for a few weeks, though.

 Booker, a longtime former SmackDown commentator and frequent Kickoff panelist, will now bring his insight — and unending supply of catchphrases — to Monday night’s hottest show until Otunga returns to WWE TV in late May.



Booker T is back suckaaaaa! I love Booker. Not only is he one of my favorite wrestlers, he is amazing on commentary. He’s fair, insightful and always propping guys up with praise. He is the only man on the planet who can make a man bun look cool. Also, he has the best catchphrase in all of wrestling and no it isn’t “CAN YOU DIG IT SUCKA!?”

Unfortunately, this stint might be the last we see of the former WCW Champion for a while. Booker is planning a run for mayor in his hometown of Houston, and that could take him off WWE TV for an extended period of time.

Regardless, GI Bro is back!
