Report: Tom Phillips replacing Vic Joseph on Raw announce team

Vic Joseph wasn’t on the desk at any point during the Royal Rumble pay-per-view (PPV) and that seemed strange, considering he has been the lead commentator for Monday Night Raw since Michael Cole was moved to SmackDown when it moved to FOX last October. The reason for that is simple.

He’s not going to be the lead commentator on Raw anymore.

That’s according to PW Insider, who report the decision was made sometime within the last week to replace Joseph with Tom Phillips, who did work the Royal Rumble. Phillips had been doing lead commentary for NXT UK, which he had taken over for Joseph. Before that, he was working the desk on SmackDown.

No word was given on why this move was made.
