In a sensational revelation, Mace, a former WWE talent, opened up about his time in WWE’s RAW and 205 Live brands as a commentator during a recent Twitch livestream. In the fickle world of pro wrestling, Mace’s unexpected departure from WWE raised quite a few eyebrows.
The stream shed light on his early days in NXT and his transition to the commentary desk, a role he fell in somewhat unexpectedly. Mace provided insights into the challenges and intricacies of being a commentator, stating, “There’s a whole thing about you got to get in advertisements, you got to count down things, you have someone counting down in your ear that we’re going to commercial break and you need to line these things up so perfectly… this isn’t what I trained for in any capacity.”
Mace’s journey to the commentary table was not an easy one as he had to brace himself up to adapt to a role he didn’t set out to do. However, his experiences with Vic Joseph, a fellow commentator, and his interactions with Michael Cole, alluded to a favorable acceptance of his commentating role.
Adding to the twists and turns, he narrated an epic showdown with Brock Lesnar, the wrestling legend who delivered an F5 to him through the announcer’s table on a WWE RAW show. Mace humorously recounted his conversation with Lesnar backstage, showing a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse of the wrestling world.
