It’s certainly not uncommon for WWE to switch things up with the announce team as the company has done so several times over the last few years. Now it seems that WWE will be switching things up once again.

WWE announced today that ESPN announcer Joe Tessitore is set to join the company and will be calling the action for WWE later this summer. He will be part of a three man team made up of himself, Corey Graves and Wade Barrett. Currently Graves and Barrett are calling the action on SmackDown. According to the announcement Joe Tessitore will remain with ESPN and ABC where he will do commentary for college football and boxing.

“Whether it’s a world title fight that’s got the globe buzzing or a college football rivalry that’s grabbed the nation’s attention, Joe’s voice provides that big event feel each time he is behind the microphone,” said WWE Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque. “We’re excited for Joe to join legendary WWE broadcaster Michael Cole and our esteemed announce team, bringing his signature energy and meticulous preparation to our WWE telecasts each week.”

“It’s an honor to be a part of WWE. The recent success and trajectory are undeniable,” said Tessitore. “Being there at WrestleMania XL, one could feel it – from Cody, Seth, Roman and The Rock, to creative and production, these are some of the very best storytellers in TV. Corey and Wade are absolute stars and it is my privilege to join their team. Pat and Cole are just magical together and Cole is the greatest to ever sit in that chair. As a lifelong viewer, I’m humbled to join this team and to serve our fans.”
