Dio Maddin last appeared on the RAW commentary team on November 4 and received an F-5 from Brock Lesnar. The 28-year-old star was written off television while fans were under the assumption that he was selling Lesnar’s attack. Now that Maddin is headed back to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, things are gradually coming to light.

On Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez reported that Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn not being fond of Maddin’s commentary work led to the young star being axed from the announcers’ booth.

“I don’t know if Dio Maddin himself is gonna get mad but I’m sure we’ll hear that this is not accurate but this is what happened. Vince and Kevin Dunn didn’t like Dio Maddin on commentary and they took him off commentary and I think they were gonna try to re-train him or whatever to do commentary but now I guess he’s decided he wants to be a wrestler again.”

Maddin will resume his wrestling career as an NXT Superstar and hopefully, we’ll see him in action in the next few months.

“I’m sure the official story is going to be that he just decided while doing commentary that he wanted to be a wrestler.”

Samoa Joe has filled in for Maddin and is doing an impressive job on the mic. Joe has a significant presence at the desk and fans simply love his quick, decisive verbal deliveries. The Destroyer will, however, return to the ring once he’s cleared for action.

Meanwhile, Maddin is planning to retire Lesnar which makes us wonder whether it’s just a random tease or the beginning of an actual feud. For what it’s worth, WWE can always use Maddin in any capacity against The Beast, meaning there’s always room for a singles clash down the line.
