Fightful Select (subscription required) has confirmed that WWE has hired independent commentator Blake Chadwick, who officially started with the company this week.
Chadwick will be announcing for WWE under the name ‘Blake Howard’, and he has already filmed for the company on Tuesday night, with his debut appearance set to take place on tomorrow night’s (February 10) episode of NXT Level Up.
Howard will be calling the show alongside Byron Saxton.
Matt Camp and Vic Joseph have stood in on commentary for the show in recent weeks following the WWE departure of Sudu Shah last month.
Blake has done work for several independent companies in the past, including WrestleCade, Ring Warriors, West Coast Wrestling Connection, Combat Fights Unlimited, Camp Leapfrog, and VCW.
This week’s show is set to feature SCRYPTS in action against Axiom, as well as Dani Palmer taking on Lash Legend and Tank Ledger against Kale Dixon.
