Triple H is the main person that is in the ears of Rich Brennan, Corey Graves and Byron Saxton. Michael Cole will provide them with advice from time to time. Cole is also the one in charge when they do commentary in post production.

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.
