Ex-WWE announcer offered £448k to commentate on steamy adult webcam sessions

An axed WWE presenter has been offered a one-year £448,000 salary to commentate on steamy adult webcam sessions.

Jimmy Smith parted company with the WWE this week after replacing Adnan Virk as the play-by-play commentator for the organisation's "Monday Night Raw" in May 2021.

But, in a surprise development, the former MMA fighter has been offered a new role within the porn industry.

CamSoda – an adult webcam site – approached the 45-year-old Californian with the promise of a $500,000 wage in return for him providing a running report on scenes.

An example of this would be, "when a model undresses herself or twerks, Smith can describe it in detail to heighten the experience for the viewer".

Daryn Parker, CamSoda's vice-president, emailed Smith with his idea, saying: "I’m sad to see your time with the WWE as an announcer has come to an end. However, I see an opportunity to work together in a similar capacity.

"I’d like to extend you a contract offer to commentate on private adult webcam sessions for CamSoda, an adult entertainment webcam platform, for one year.

"You’d provide the play-by-play for the steamy action happening on camera, as well as live events the company runs throughout the year including ‘Car Wars’ and beer pong.

"In return for your role as an announcer, I’d be willing to compensate you up to $500,000. Please take some time to consider my offer. I look forward to your response."

Smith has not made a public response to the approach yet, but did release a statement on his Twitter account on Thursday (October 6) thanking his fans for their support during his employment with the WWE.

It read: "Just wanted to say, now that the story is officially out, that my time with the WWE is officially done. Had a lot of fun and met some great people.

"Really and truly blown away by the acceptance from the WWE fans! You folks make it work every week and your enthusiasm was amazing!"

Smith also previously hosted Discovery Channel's Fight Quest and American Ninja Warrior for NBC from 2010 to 2011.
