WWE Officially Announces Jimmy Smith, Smith Responds To Skepticism From WWE Fans

WWE has officially announced Jimmy Smith as the new member of the RAW announce team.

Smith will debut as the play-by-play voice of RAW beginning this Monday, May 31. He will call the action every Monday night with Corey Graves and Byron Saxton.

WWE acknowledged that Smith worked as an analyst for WWE NXT, serving on the “Takeover: Stand and Deliver” pre-show panels, and working on special projects for the black & gold brand, which included the video package for Finn Balor vs. NXT Champion Karrion Kross. WWE also pointed to how Smith is the host of SiriusXM’s Unlocking The Cage, and previously hosted American Ninja Warrior.

Jimmy Smith took to Twitter this evening to comment on his new gig. He noted that he is stepping into a new world, and revealed that he grew up as a fan of WWE Hall of Famer Curt Hennig and the legendary Bruiser Brody.

“Hey guys, well it’s been a busy day. Apparently @WWE liked my work so far. I know I’m stepping into a new world (I WAS a Mr. Perfect and Bruiser Brody fanatic however) but know I’ll do everything I can to honor the athletes and fans. Watch Monday and judge my work for yourself,” Smith wrote.

One fan brought up how Smith made a June 2019 tweet where he said he hadn’t watched pro wrestling since grade school, and the only thing that could bring him back at that point would be for MMA star Chael Sonnen to appear for WWE as a manager. Smith noted in that 2019 tweet that Sonnen would be “the best heel mouthpiece” since WWE Hall of Famer Bobby Heenan.

Another fan commented on that 2019 tweet and wrote, “This aged very well. Over / Under if this guy lasts longer than Adnan Virk? I say 5 weeks, he’s toast.” – Smith responded, “I will TOTALLY take the over on that bet

Smith will be replacing Adnan Virk, who parted ways with WWE on Tuesday after less than two months on the job.
