• Real Reason Behind Dio Maddin Being Removed From RAW Commentary Team

As revealed on this week’s WWE Backstage on FS1, Dio Maddin’s run as a commentator on RAW has official ended.

He was last seen on RAW last month, where he got F5ed through the announce table by WWE Champion Brock Lesnar.

According to Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer, Dio was removed from the RAW commentary team because Vince McMahon & Kevin Dunn didn’t like his work:

“I don’t know if Dio Maddin himself is gonna get mad but I’m sure we’ll hear that this is not accurate but this is what happened.

Vince and Kevin Dunn didn’t like Dio Maddin on commentary and they took him off commentary and I think they were gonna try to re-train him or whatever to do commentary but now I guess he’s decided he wants to be a wrestler again.

I’m sure the official story is going to be that he just decided while doing commentary that he wanted to be a wrestler.”
