Jimmy Smith: Roman Reigns Can't Fight, WWE Are All About The Visual

Jimmy Smith gives his thoughts on Roman Reigns

Less than a week on from his WWE release, Jimmy Smith has given his thoughts on Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, saying that WWE's top star cannot fight but the company is more focused on the visual.

Speaking about WWE's backstage atmosphere on SiriusXM, Smith said: "The WWE behind the scenes is more CM Punk than Brock Lesnar. Does this guy look like he can fight? That is what the WWE is about. Roman Reigns can't fight. He looks like he can fight. He's just a big muscular dude. Daniel Cormier does not (look like he can fight). You put (Cormier) next to Brock Lesnar, and it looks like a man and a kid, and WWE is all about that visual."

Smith was previously the play-by-play announcer on Monday Night Raw but he was let go by WWE last week as part of a commentary team reshuffle. He was replaced by Kevin Patrick, while Corey Graves is the other half of the two-man booth.

Roman Reigns will next defend his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at Crown Jewel on November 5. He will go one-on-one with Logan Paul.
