NXT is gearing up to debut on USA Network on September 18th. The commentary team consists of Beth Pheonix, Nigel McGuinness and Mauro Ranallo. Due to the show being live more often and shooting from Florida, Nigel is being moved to NXT permanently.
That means his seat at the table of 205 Live is open and WWE filled it with a peculiar voice. Dio Maddin is a wrestler on NXT the hasn’t had any impact on the NXT television roster. He is best known as Brennen Williams, a former Houston Texan of the NFL. He is also known as a member of the Insiderz with Mansoor, who like to acapella wrestlers theme music.
There were reactions on Twitter that were mostly positive.
We will see how long this role lasts, as Dio seemed at home behind the commentary table and was able to give some insight that Vic Joseph and Aiden English couldn’t.
