205 Live’s announce team has lost a great talent as Nigel McGuinness will no longer work the purple brand. This is due to his role as an NXT announcer greatly increasing. With the show moving to the USA Network next week, he’ll now be traveling to Full Sail each week in order to call its action for two hours. He’ll be joined by Mauro Ranallo and Beth Phoenix.

In his place is an interesting choice. Joining Vic Joseph and Aiden English is NXT star Dio Maddin (who was formerly known as Brennan Williams).The former NFL lineman has been with the company since 2016. That trio will call the action each week on the WWE Network going forward.
