WWE Raw -Jimmy Smith debut night: Jimmy Smith’s first night on WWE Raw turned out to be a wonderful experience. The former UFC commentator and fighter was announced as the newest member of the WWE Raw commentary team last week after Adnan Virk parted ways with the company.
Talking about his experience on the first night as WWE Raw commentator, Jimmy wrote a post on his Twitter,
“Had a blast at #WWERaw tonight! Amazing match between @DMcIntyreWWE and @TrueKofi! Tried my best to give it the energy it deserved.”

Jimmy looked proficient enough along with Corey Graves and Byron Saxton at the commentary table. He looks like a perfect fit for the Red Brand, and we hope he continues for long.
