WWE reshuffled their broadcast team for Raw, SmackDown and NXT in a major way. The company brought in Kevin Patrick as Jimmy Smith’s replacement for Monday Night Raw. Smith reacted to his WWE release as well.

On the latest edition of MMA on SiriusXM, Smith told listeners that his WWE release came “out of the blue,” noting that he’s fine because he didn’t expect to be in WWE at all.

“I didn’t expect to do this at all. I had no idea that I would be doing professional wrestling. It all came out of the blue. The audition came out of the blue. Getting on Raw came out of the blue, and me leaving is out of the blue.”

As previously reported, Jimmy Smith received a job offer from an adult cam company following his WWE release. The former Raw play-by-play announcer is thankful for his time in the company. Check out his video below.
