Aiden English Joins The WWE 205 Live Commentary Team:
Beginning tonight on WWE 205 Live, SmackDown Superstar Aiden English joins Vic Joseph & Nigel McGuinness as a Guest Commentator through WrestleMania Season. English will still compete on SmackDown LIVE, but he is seizing the opportunity to show off his abilities at the announce table.
WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick explained his decision behind the addition of The Drama King.
“The McMahons have been shaking things up on Raw and SmackDown LIVE, so I’m going to follow suit,” 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.”
Senior Director of On-Air Talent and Raw commentator Michael Cole also praised the move.
“We wanted to do something special for WrestleMania season, and Royal Rumble week kicks off the Road to WrestleMania,” said Cole. “We’ve been working with Aiden at the WWE Performance Center to see if he has the chops, and it turns out he’s pretty good.”
