The lineup for the official commentary team for this weekend’s highly anticipated WWE WrestleMania 40 events in Philadelphia has been unveiled, promising an exciting blend of familiar voices and a special guest appearance.

The landscape of WWE commentary has seen its fair share of changes in recent years, with various personalities stepping up and moving on from the announcers’ desk.

On Monday Night Raw, the dynamic duo of Michael Cole and Pat McAfee take the helm, providing their insights and commentary. Over on Friday Night SmackDown, fans are treated to the seasoned voices of Wade Barrett and Corey Graves guiding them through the action.

Typically, for the company’s premium live events, Cole and Graves team up to deliver play-by-play commentary. However, WrestleMania, being the grandest stage of them all, will see a slight alteration.


During the WWE WrestleMania 40 Kickoff Show, Michael Cole himself revealed the commentary team for both nights of WrestleMania. Joining him and Corey Graves will be none other than Pat McAfee, ensuring a dynamic trio to narrate the blockbuster event.

But the excitement didn’t stop there. Cole had another surprise in store for the fans as he introduced a special guest commentator for the Seth Rollins vs. Drew McIntyre World Heavyweight Title Match on WrestleMania Sunday: none other than the iconic CM Punk. With his unique perspective and unparalleled experience, CM Punk’s addition to the commentary team promises to add an extra layer of excitement and insight to one of WrestleMania’s marquee matchups.

As the stage is set for WrestleMania 40, fans can anticipate an unforgettable weekend of action, with a commentary team ready to bring every moment to life with their expertise and passion for the sport.

What are your thoughts on the announced commentary team for WrestleMania 40, including the addition of CM Punk as a special guest commentator for the Seth Rollins vs. Drew McIntyre match?
