• RAW Personality Accidentally Informed About His WWE Firing By Triple H
RAW Commentator Jimmy Smith is no longer with WWE. He has been replaced with Kevin Patrick.
Below is the statement that he issued on Twitter:
“Just wanted to say, now that the story is officially out, that my time with the WWE is officially done.
Had a lot of fun and met some great people. Really and truly blown away by the acceptance from the WWE fans!
You folks make it work every week and your enthusiasm was amazing!”
Jimmy further talked about leaving WWE on his “Unlocking the Cage” show, where he said the following:
“Triple H accidentally told me before the show on Monday. He screwed up and told me [about the commentary changes]. He didn’t mean to.
I go, ‘Hey, I just talked to (Matt) Riddle and he gave me this line about how he out-wrestled Jon Jones twice’ and Triple H goes, ‘Okay, cool. Give that note to [Michael] Cole’ and I went, why would I have to give that note to Cole if I’m calling the match on Saturday?
Oh. I’m not calling the match on Saturday. Oh, I’m probably fired. In about two seconds, my brain went, that’s so — okay…and I was like, all right.
So I knew basically the whole show on Monday night that I wasn’t coming back so when I got the call Tuesday, I was not particularly surprised.”
