Answering a question from a fan, Coach about whether he’d consider a return, Coach simply replied, “I will never go back to the WWE” before another asked whether there was “beef” and the former WWE commentator confirmed:
“No. I am just having fun doing what I am doing now. And want to work for companies where respect goes both ways. And I am doing that now. That’s it.”

The former RAW broadcaster – now working at NBC following a lengthy run at ESPN – would respond to another disappointed fan who said they enjoyed his work in WWE, saying, “Thank you. I had a blast doing it. I really did.”
Coach worked in WWE from 1999 until 2008, before returning almost ten years later. In 2016, Jonathan Coachman would return to WWE at a live event in Madison Square Garden before appearing during several segments at RAW 25. In January, 2018, Coachman re-signed with WWE and joined the RAW commentary team alongside Michael Cole and Corey Graves, replacing Booker T as color commentary. Eight months later, Coachman would depart the role – but appeared on several pay-per-view pre-show panels following the switch which saw Renee Young take over on commentary.
