Next week is the debut of SmackDown on the USA Network. There have been rumors of major changes coming for the brand, and it began with WWE hiring Mauro Ranallo to be the voice of SmackDown.
WWE is preparing the show to be a big deal in their programming again. Now that the brand has a voice, there needs to be a foil, and the question is who WWE will put next to Ranallo to be his color commentator?
The current announce team consists of Lawler, Rich Brennan and Booker T. It’s a solid combination, but there is no confirmation about who it will be next to Ranallo.
While answering some fan questions on Twitter, Lawler said he will remain on the SmackDown announce team.
A fan asked, “@JerryLawler thoughts on working with @mauroranallo on #WWESmackdown.” “The King” responded, “Can’t wait! Should be a lot of fun! I got some surprises in store for him!”
