Jimmy Smith is set to take over for Adnan Virk on WWE RAW next week. He will learn a new job in front of millions. This could be quite a learning experience, because Smith has quite a gap in history.
A 2019 tweet from Jimmy Smith has resurfaced and is getting shared around today. This tweet from Smith says that he hasn’t watched WWE since grade school. Many are putting this out as a meme, but it is 100% real. It is a few years old, so Jimmy Smith might have started watching wrestling by now.
He has not deleted the tweet, and you can find it below. This tweet admits to not watching WWE since grade school, but he would start watching if Chael Sonnen became a manager.
I haven’t watched pro wrestling since I was in grade-school. The only thing that would bring me back would be @ChaelSonnen as a manager in the @WWE. He’d be the best heel mouthpiece since Bobby “The Brain” Heenan
Chael Sonnen did not become a manager for WWE, but Jimmy Smith better start watching Vince McMahon’s programming now. He has a lot of history to catch up on, but that is only part of the job.
We’ll have to see how Jimmy Smith does next week as he starts on Monday’s show.
