In a rather interesting development, Chael Sonnen, who is currently the lead commentator for GFW, is set to meet with Michael Cole when WWE does a Smackdown taping in Portland on August 11. There are talks that Sonnen has long been interested in joining the promotion and working as an on screen talent. He definitely has the passion and the talent for the job.

Life can be pretty hard when your job requires absolute perfection. That is a lesson that was drilled into Michael Cole during the latest episode of Monday Night Raw. The long time WWE commentator screwed up the start time of Wrestlemania, and that did not sit well with Vince McMahon. It is being said that the CEO laid into Cole pretty harshly on the headset. The belief is that JBL also laid into him because McMahon instructed him to.

Even though the change was made this month, there are already rumblings that we could be seeing another change in the form of the Smackdown announcers. Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler are safe in their positions, but there are rumors that WWE isn't completely sold on Byron Saxton just yet. Fortunately for him, there are people backstage who love his personality, so he will have some in his corner when push comes to shove.
