Following WrestleMania 37 Adnan Virk took over as the lead play-by-play announcer on Monday Night Raw, but last week WWE announced that Virk and the company had mutually parted ways.
This week former UFC and Bellator commentator Jimmy Smith took over Adnan Virk’s previous role on Raw, and the reaction from fans on social media seems to be mostly positive. Some fans are saying that they’re already sold on Smith’s commentary skills after just one episode of Raw, and Jimmy Smith reacted to his first night on the show when he posted the following:
“Had a blast at #WWERaw tonight! Amazing match between @DMcIntyreWWE and @TrueKofi! Tried my best to give it the energy it deserved”
“I have been a part of a LOT of big sports productions. I’ve never seen ANYTHING that compares to the setup at Thunderdome. Truly impressive”
