• “Roman Reigns can’t fight. He’s just a big muscular dude” – Recently Fired WWE Personality
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!”
Less than a week after his departure, Jimmy took a shot at the entire WWE roster when he said the following on MMA on Sirius XM:
“The WWE behind the scenes is more CM Punk than Brock Lesnar. Does this guy look like he can fight? That is what the WWE is about.
Roman Reigns can’t fight. He looks like he can fight. He’s just a big muscular dude. Daniel Cormier does not (look like he can fight).
You put [Cormier] next to Brock Lesnar, and it looks like a man and a kid, and WWE is all about that visual.”
