Recently, Smith served as an analyst for NXT, where he hosted NXT TakeOver pre-show panels and worked on special projects for the black-and-gold brand. He is also the daily host of SiriusXM’s “Unlocking the Cage” and was the host of “American Ninja Warrior” on G4.
Smith will now be on RAW commentary with Corey Graves and Byron Saxton.
We here at The Ringside Roster wish Jimmy Smith the best of luck. After all it can certainly be a tough gig as we’ve seen.
What do you think of the addition of Smith to the RAW commentary team? Let us know in the comments.
