- Former WWE Champion John “Bradshaw” Layfield teased on Twitter that he will be assuming the SmackDown color commentator chair left by Booker T. He wrote, “I was only debating coming back, not very serious. But after @MichaelCole shows he is still alive and an idiot. I’m coming back! #smackdown.”

The esteemed Voice of WWE, Michael Cole, broke his six-month Twitter silence to respond to his former broadcast partner dismissively comparing him to basketball great Michael Jordan’s backup center teammate Will Perdue: “It was jordan and pippen. You got glory I did the work. sorry I am actually working and not golfing at st Andrews or fishing in the Bahamas. Enjoy retirement.”

Cole also stated in regards to Layfield’s vow to come back to SmackDown, “I am sure they have a spot for you at nxt and fcw. Enjoy learning the ropes again.”

– The Beautiful People, Angelina Love and Velvet Sky, will face Maria Kanellis and Winter at Family Wrestling Entertainment’s “Back 2 Brooklyn” show taking place October 6 at Saint Patrick’s Gym 9511 4 Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11209-7414. Former WWE Divas Champion Maryse Ouellet is also scheduled to appear and the league’s official Twitter feed notes that she will be commentating the match.

– Ted DiBiase and Kaitlyn appear at the National Guard Armory 4255 IH 35N, San Antonio, Texas today from noon to 2:00 p.m.

    the real ? is how much longer will we have to put up with the delusional Michael Cole.

  • Jefferson D’Arcy

    I really believe Cole’s heel character has gone to his head, because he’s become a real cocky, bitter little prick. And talks down to guys twice his size with such arrogance. It’s like, really? Michael Cole? Or maybe he’s just been a little prick his whole life, and we’re just now seeing it. Either way, always hated him and still believe he has feelings for Tazz :p

    Does this mean we get to hear JBL telling Cole to “SHUT UP!”? Then im for it. JBL is up there as one of the most amusing and talented colour commentators, along with CM Punk, Matt Striker and heel Jerry Lawler.

  • Nicholas

    I love JBL doing color to me he should have never left the broadcast booth after he retire the first time. It will be a breath of fresh air for Smackdown.

  • sam

    i always thought JBL was a very good colour commentator during his stint on smackdown

  • Jimbotron

    JBL will be a commentating GOD!

  • Bill

    YES! YES! YES! Now all we need is JR on Raw!

  • scooter

    JBL Regal and Josh Matthews (the most underrated commentator in wwe) would be a great team to call smackdown.

  • eClaSs

    JBL back as a commentator?

    where do I sign up?

    His a WRESTLING…….GOD!

  • mike

    I loved jbl on commentary, really hopes he considers coming back full time
