Bengaluru, Dec 8: WWE universe loved Jonathon Coachman whether he played a good or bad guy on-screen. He had a charming persona via which he has become an interviewer, a commentator, and the Raw General Manager, as well.
He was last seen in 2008 after which he decided not to renew his WWE contract and thereby left the company.
Since then he has joined ESPN to host a special segment called “Off the Top Rope” in the ESPN Sportscenter.
In the section, he gets the opportunity to interview several WWE Superstars, on a weekly basis. The show also brought a WWE-ESPN partnership for a better mainstream audience for WWE.
So, at a time when WWE is bring back more stars from outside to its broadcasting, can’t we expect “The Coach” back to WWE? Recently, a fan took his Twitter handle to ask Coachman whether we could see him back in the WWE or not and he came up with a positive answer.
I really wish they would bring back @TheCoachESPN for the WWE Pre-Show panels. I miss him!— Karen Peterson✌🏻🤓 (@KarenNerdsOut) December 5, 2016
Working on it Karen. And I mean it. We ARE working on it. And also thank you. I love hosting as many different things as possible. https://t.co/RXH5LRIVQt

As you can see from the conversation, there might be some serious talks going on between the two parties. We might get the coach early since the Wrestlemania season is approaching near us.
WWE is bringing more guests for the kick-off or pre-show panels and Coach will be one rightmost person to fit into it. We have seen DJ Peter Rosenberg in WWE TLC kick-off panel. The tradition might continue with the coach.
Coachman returned to WWE, this year prior to Wrestlemania 32. The edition of Raw on March 28th, 2016 saw the Coach joining the New Day in a win celebration. The Coach was seen with his usual antics and fun-loving mannerisms. He announced that ESPN will broadcast live cut-ins from Wrestlemania 32 for the entire time. This was for the first time when the biggest pro-wrestling event was broadcasted via the biggest mainstream channel, ESPN.
