Chris Cash


WrestlingObserver.com is reporting that there is a lot of second guessing about the Raw pairing of Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler and apparently, it’s increasing each week. Vince McMahon is reportedly upset with Michael Cole’s performance thus far on Raw and it has led to him and others doubting the decision to switch him and Jim Ross.

Additionally, the story states that they have considered finding a way to bring Jim Ross back to Monday Night Raw. These talks are considered small right now and as it stands, Vince simply wants to try and make Michael Cole what he wants him to be therefore holding off on any possibility of bringing Ross back to Raw.

WrestleZone.com spoke with someone very close to the situation and this report was completely news to them. They had not heard of any such talk and also explained that Jim Ross is very happy with his position on Smackdown! as it allows him most weekends off to spend with his family, including daughters and granddaughters.

They added, “Cole will do just fine if he is allowed to get settled in to his new role and he deserves the opportunity to do so. If Raw has any ‘major issues’ it isnâ<80><99>t the announcing”.
