Tom Phillips To Reportedly Replace Jerry “The King” Lawler On Monday Night RAW



WWE RAW’s season premiere just ushered in a new era for the pro wrestling industry – a brand new stage, fresh product, and a revamped commentary team look quite appealing coupled with Vince McMahon’s “it all begins again” promise to the WWE Universe.

RAW’s new announcers’ desk features Vic Joesph as the play-by-play commentator alongside color commentators Dio Maddin and Hall Of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler.

While fans are excited to see Lawler back at the commentary booth, WWE has other plans in store – The King’s on-screen time could be winding down in the next couple of months.

On Oh, You Didn’t Know patreon, Brad Shepard reported that Tom Phillips could be replacing Lawler on RAW in December.

According to a source in WWE, the company has Tom Phillips working on other projects and he is expected to join the Raw commentary team and replace Lawler as of early December – this was the plan as of Thursday of last week.

The fact that WWE wants Phillips to join the RAW commentary team shouldn’t come off as a surprise. The 30-year-old Philly native has done an excellent job as the lead voice of SmackDown for the last couple of years and would be an ideal addition to the new ‘inexperienced’ commentary booth on the red brand.

Shepard further revealed that Lawler’s unmatched experience in commentary is what made McMahon bring him back on RAW.

Vince McMahon made the call to add Lawler to the team since they’re inexperienced.

We previously reported that 7-time Women’s Champion Mickie James could be replacing Lawler on RAW but it appears that Phillips is the frontrunner for the gig. While a female voice would definitely make sense and draw greater attention, the addition of a young and experienced name to the desk sounds appealing nevertheless.
