For many WWE fans, Michael Cole, who has voiced the game alongside Lawler in Smackdown vs Raw 2011 and WWE '12, was a disappointing replacement.
The return of Jim Ross should be greeted warmly by fans who were lukewarm about the commentary in WWE '12. If rumors are true, Ross could make the commentary in WWE '13 much more exciting. The team last worked together on WWE All Stars.
THQ hasn't commented on the rumors, but WWE Games Twitter did address the rumors, hinting that they could be true.
