Starting tonight on WWE 205 Live, SmackDown Superstar Aiden English will be joining Vic Joseph and Nigel McGuinness as a guest commentator through WrestleMania season.
The official made the announcement today in which they confirmed that English will also still compete on the SmackDown Live brand.
WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick had the following to say about English joining the 205 Live Brand:
“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.”
