Michael Cole on three man RAW announce team: “I can just be an unbiased play-by-play guy, and let Corey have his views, and Byron have his views, and they can go back and forth and debate and argue with each other while I can just do what I do, which is call a match and tell stories.”
Cole also adds why he likes three announcers instead of just two: “It’s tough that way, but just having that straight play-by-play guy to tell your stories, be unbiased, and have your two guys playing off each other, it’s perfect.”
Michael Cole on Nigel McGuinness: “He’s gonna start his career off as part of this tournament, but he’s gonna be with WWE full time going forward. We have a lot of plans for Nigel, and I think fans are going to be excited seeing what he has coming in his career.”
