Corey Graves is joining the Raw announce desk while JBL will call Smackdown as WWE shakes up its commentary teams following the brand extension.
Graves, who has commentated on WWE NXT since retiring from the ring in December 2014, will describe the action on Monday nights alongside Michael Cole and Byron Saxton.
JBL, meanwhile, will be heard live on Tuesday evenings as he moves from the Raw team to the blue brand, where he will work with Mauro Ranallo and David Otunga.
Otunga will also commentate on WWE Main Event - broadcast every Thursday night on Sky Sports - with Tom Phillips serving as his broadcast partner.
Raw's ranks were also swelled by Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar and The New Day, while Smackdown's acquisitions included Randy Orton, John Cena and NXT tag team American Alpha. Click here for the full WWE Draft results.
