Booker T

Booker T filling in for Jonathan Coachman

It was announced a few days ago that WWE Hall of Famer Booker T would be joining the RAW commentary team tomorrow night on RAW from St. Louis.

Booker will be filling in for Jonathan Coachman for one week only as he will be doing commentary for the World Long Driver golf program this coming week.

Coachman officially replaced Booker T on the RAW commentary the night after WrestleMania 34, with Booker now taking part in Kickoff Show panels only.

WWE has yet to officially confirm Booker’s involvement tomorrow night.

WWE comments on the passing of Verne Troyer
