-Jonathan Coachman will be returning to the WWE Raw announce team alongside Corey Graves and Michael Cole, bumping Booker T from his seat. Booker was supposed to be a temporarily replacement for David Otunga when he was shooting a movie, but Otunga never returned to that position even when the movie was finished. Coachman most recently worked for ESPN, but he worked for WWE for years prior to his time with ESPN. He was once being groomed to place Jim Ross as a lead play-by-play commentator, but he never fully adapted to that role.

-Last Thursday’s episode of Impact on Pop TV drew 310,000 viewers the highest of the year by a slim margin, and up from the prior week’s viewership of 281,000. January ended the month with an average of 294,000 viewers. It opened the year at 309,000 on Jan. 3 and hit a low point of 276,000 on Jan. 10.
