WWE has announced a new member of the 205 Live commentary team.
It was announced today that Aiden English will join Vic Joseph and Nigel McGuinness as guest commentator through WrestleMania season. They pointed out that this is not the end for him in the ring as he will still compete on SmackDown Live but he will also be given the opportunity to show off his abilities at the announce table.
“The McMahons have been shaking things up on Raw and SmackDown LIVE, so I’m going to follow suit,” 205 Live GM Drake Maverick said. “Aiden English is an active Superstar and is very opinionated, and I believe those opinions and perspective will add to the current commentary team, only adding to the entertainment value of The Most Exciting Hour of Television.”
Michael Cole, WWE’s Senior Director of On-Air Talent, said they wanted to do something special for WrestleMania season and the decision was made after working with English at the Performance Center.
English has been wrestling at some live events but most fans haven’t seen him since his feud with Rusev ended several months ago on SmackDown Live.
