Aiden English has been added to the 205 Live commentary team. WWE has confirmed English will provide guest commentary for the cruiserweight division through WrestleMania season. He will still be listed as an active Superstar on Smackdown, however.
“The McMahons have been shaking things up on Raw and SmackDown LIVE, so I’m going to follow suit,” 205 Live General Manager, 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.”
Aiden English commented on social media and dubbed himself the best ‘mic man’ and most underrated act in the company.
Best mic man in WWE? ??
