In September, Vic Joseph, Dio Maddin and Jerry Lawler took the reigns of the RAW commentary booth as part of the 2019 WWE Draft. Maddin was well-received by fans but his new role on the red brand didn’t last long.

On November 4, Brock Lesnar attacked Maddin in pursuit of Rey Mysterio. The Beast delivered an F-5 to the young star on the commentary table, causing him to miss the flagship show ever since.

This week on WWE Backstage, Ryan Satin reported that Maddin is headed back to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando to further his career as an NXT Superstar. Samoa Joe will be filling in for the time being. This explains why Maddin has been absent from commentary for so long.

Dio was previously reported to have been selling Lesnar’s attack by staying off the television but in reality, it was just an excuse to get him off RAW.

Joe is currently rehabbing from a broken thumb and was previously reported to return this month. However, it doesn’t seem like The Destroyer will resume action any time soon as he’s been quite impressive on the mic and WWE already has a bunch of top Superstars who are just wrestling week-to-week without any definite storyline.

Meanwhile, the 28-year-old star had vowed to retire Lesnar now that Matt Riddle is busy pursuing Bill Goldberg.

This makes us wonder whether Maddin and Lesnar will cross paths in the near future. The attack angle on RAW has definitely opened up a potential storyline but it remains to be seen whether or not the company is ready to take that route.

Many had predicted Maddin to spoil Lesnar’s WWE Championship defense by assisting Mysterio at Survivor Series. WWE not using Dio in any capacity against Brock at the pay-per-view makes us wonder whether the creative is brewing some exciting plans for a big clash down the line.
