High Praise For WWE Raw Star’s Hard Work & Dedication

High Praise For WWE Raw Star’s Hard Work & Dedication WWE

There’s some high praise being given to WWE Raw lead announcer Kevin Patrick, who only started in the role a few weeks ago.

As we’ve discovered plenty in recent times, it can be hard for a new lead announcer to slot into place, especially when they don’t come from a wrestling background.

Patrick is someone who fits into that bracket, but according to his broadcast colleague Corey Graves, he’s been putting in a lot of hard work to settle in.

As part of the recent announcement that Patrick would be Graves’ new co-host on the After The Bell podcast, Graves told Sports Illustrated all about the work that Patrick has been putting in.

Graves said:

“Kevin has an incredible work ethic that’s earned a lot of respect from a lot of people within WWE, myself included. He doesn’t come from the wrestling world, but he is doing everything in his ability to learn and embrace every aspect of this crazy industry.

“It’s going to take time, but he has the desire to learn. He types up these critiques after every Raw to get better. I’m optimistic over the work he puts in and the passion he has for this business, which can be difficult for people who come from an outside sport. And I know it’s a change – our fans are used to hearing him do backstage interviews, not calling Raw. But he’s really taken the initiative to learn every aspect. We’ve been sitting at a pub after Raw the past few weeks and go over every detail. He’s learning different aspects of the business you’ll never learn in broadcasting school.”
