Michael Cole should not have a match wrestling at Wrestlemania.

With the way things are going right now, it looks like WWE is heading down a path where we're going to see two of their commentators being booked against one another at the biggest wrestling event of the year.

Jerry Lawler is finally going to get his revenge against the play-by-play announcer that he has been sitting with for quite a while now.

Cole vs Lawler.

That's a match that should certainly not be on the card.

There's nothing wrong with booking Lawler for the show. It's a feel-good moment for him to finally get a Wrestlemania moment; it's also a moment that the fans have been clamoring for.

Cole doesn't exactly benefit by having a match on the show. He's already quite over with the audience since his heel turn. He's generating as much of a reaction as the top level guys are.

You know who would benefit from a match at Wrestlemania? An actual wrestler.

You know who's an actual wrestler? Alex Riley.

Riley has been involved with Miz, Lawler and Cole for the past couple of months now. His association with Miz helps him secure television time each week.

However, WWE is going to need to do something more with him than that in order to move him up the ladder.

With that in mind, WWE needs to substitute Riley for Cole.
