WWE Signs Kevin Patrick

WWE has released a statement on its website this afternoon, confirming the signing of sports broadcaster Kevin Patrick.

The statement notes that Patrick will be serving as a backstage correspondent on Monday Night Raw, the host of RawTalk on the WWE Network, and a commentator on Main Event:

Kevin Patrick is set to join WWE as a backstage correspondent for Monday Night Raw, play-by-play commentator for WWE Main Event and as the host of Raw Talk.

“I’m beyond thrilled to join WWE,” said Patrick.  “I’ve always been blown away by the incredible charisma and athleticism of the WWE Superstars, and I’m excited at the opportunity to help tell their stories.”

As a studio host, play-by-play commentator and reporter, Patrick has been fortunate to travel the world combining his love of sports, broadcasting and entertainment. You’ll currently find him broadcasting for CNN International and Atlanta United matches on FOX Sports, as well as hosting for SiriusXM FC.

Born in Dublin, Ireland, Patrick started his career in the entertainment industry with RTE, Ireland’s National Broadcaster, where he worked on world-class soccer events and the 2004 Olympics.  In 2009, he moved to the United States and joined Big Ten Network.  In 2012, the Chicago Fire Soccer Club hired him as a television commentator and analyst until 2015, where he moved to Miami to join beIN SPORTS as a studio presenter and match commentator.  While there, he hosted beIN SPORTS’ live coverage of El Clasico from both Madrid and Barcelona, as well as fronting beIN’s exclusive coverage of the U.S. Men’s National Team World Cup Qualifiers. Patrick moved to Atlanta in 2019 to continue his work with Atlanta United as well as to join CNN International and Sirius XM.

This comes after it was reported that former UFC and Bellator commentator Jimmy Smith was backstage at SmackDown las week for an audition, presumably with the intention of also signing with the company as a commentator.
