Things were all going so well with Rusev Day. You’d hear the fans chanting for them even if they weren’t in the match.
But then Aiden English had to go and ruin it all by turning heel on Rusev after a bizarre “One Night in Milwaukee” storyline, and he hasn’t been seen since.
Of course we don’t blame him for that, but it has meant that his career has gone off the rails a bit.
But now, it looks like he’s going to back on our screens in a commentary role as he joins the 205 Live commentary team.
He will join Vic Joseph and Nigel McGuinness at the table, after reportedly undergoing commentary training at the WWE Performance Center in Florida.
Here is the full WWE announcement with comments from Michael Cole and 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick:
Aiden English joins the WWE 205 Live commentary team
Beginning tonight on WWE 205 Live, SmackDown Superstar Aiden English joins Vic Joseph and Nigel McGuinness as a guest commentator through WrestleMania season. English will still compete on SmackDown LIVE, but he’s 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.”
