Raw announcer Byron Saxton has opened up about his most memorable commentary moment during his time at the broadcast desk in WWE.
Former WWE Superstar Byron Saxton is now firmly part of the WWE announce team but that wasn’t always the case. Back in 2015, Saxton was a rookie announcer who had yet to call his first episode of Monday Night Raw.
As he explained on the Out Of Character podcast, his most memorable moment on commentary came when he had to fly solo on WWE’s flagship show back in 2015:
“It was probably Raw after WrestleMania. It was in Santa Clara, California, I think it was 2015. And I had to do a part of the show all by myself. By that time I had not been on Raw yet, I was just doing the secondary shows, and circumstances developed the way they did. Brock Lesner took out the entire announce team.”
“I had not realized till literally a couple minutes before that I was going to be out there by myself. So I’m thinking ‘I’m on the biggest Raw of the year’ and at the time, the table had been turned over, they couldn’t set it up, so I’m literally sitting in the fetal position. So there’s this moment there before we come back from the break and I go ‘What is this life? What is going on?'”
That night’s Raw saw Brock Lesnar take out the announce team in a rage after losing the WWE Championship the night before at WrestleMania 31 to Seth Rollins who cashed in his Money In The Bank briefcase.
