Michael Cole

Michael Cole absent

There was actually a good amount of discussion throughout the afternoon about whether or not Michael Cole would be doing commentary on Monday Night Raw. Since people backstage were so divided, the decision was made to keep him off of television this week, in order to sell how brutal the beating from Brock Lesnar was. Many in WWE felt that it would be downplaying his impact if Cole were to be able to return to television so soon.

Michael Cole sues Brock Lesnar

One of the ideas being thrown around by the creative department right now is do a story line where Michael Cole threatens to sue Brock Lesnar for the injuries that he suffered on the previous episode of Monday Night Raw. WWE might do a thing where Paul Heyman would beg and plead with Cole to drop the charges. The move would give Heyman something to do on television, and it would continue the story line for Lesnar.

Perro Aguayo

Michael Cole injury

On Monday Night Raw, we saw Brock Lesnar demolishing Michael Cole with his F5 finishing move. In the story line, WWE is stating that the commentator suffered a broken neck. That has drawn some heat from others in the industry. Many are pointing out that Perro Aguayo recently died because of a similar injury. They feel that it was a bit insensitive of the creative department to do something like that so soon.

Brock Lesnar schedule

While the dollar amount has increased tremendously for Brock Lesnar, his schedule will remain largely the same as the previous contract. The plan right now is for WWE to only use him a couple of times per year for the next three years. The former world heavyweight champion will only be wrestling at pay per view events, while making appearances on Monday Night Raw here and there to promote his high profile matches.

Tom Phillips

Michael Cole injured

To further sell the kayfabe injury suffered by Michael Cole at the hands of Brock Lesnar during Monday Night Raw, WWE has decided to keep the announcer off of the commentating table for the next episode of Smackdown. The on air explanation is that he needs surgery. Tom Phillips is replacing him and will join Jerry Lawler and Byron Saxton at the booth. No confirmation yet, but the belief is that Cole will be back for Monday Night Raw.

Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar suspended

For those of you that are having trouble separating fact from fiction, the suspension thrown at Brock Lesnar for creating a carnage during Monday Night Raw is simply a part of the story line. WWE wanted to ease some of the resentment from members of the internet wrestling community that held a grudge against Lesnar for not being there full time. This is part of their long term plan to eventually turn him into a full blown baby face.

Wrestlemania momentum

Thanks in large part to the presence of Sting and Brock Lesnar, WWE has a little bit of momentum heading into Wrestlemania. The latest episode of Monday Night Raw saw an increase in viewership. While a lot of fans online have been critical of the awkward ending to the show, the belief is that they are still going to be tuning into the pay per view this upcoming Sunday. Numbers from the next episode of Raw will be especially telling.
