Ireland is set to reach another milestone within the WWE, with Kevin Patrick Egan being announced as a commentator for Monday Night Raw.
The Irishman will co-commentate alongside Corey Graves on the WWE's flagship show, using Kevin Patrick as his stage name.
He continues the long tradition of Irish people making their mark in United States wrestling, following on from the likes of Finlay, Seamus, Finn Balor, and Becky Lynch.
Patrick already has a wealth of experience in the WWE, having worked as a backstage correspondent, as well as the host of RAW Talk and a play-by-play commentator on WWE Main Event.
The Dubliner previously worked for RTE, before joining Fox Sports and moving onto BeIn Sports in Miami.
“I’m beyond thrilled to join WWE," said Patrick last year when he initially joined the company. "I’ve always been blown away by the incredible charisma and athleticism of the WWE Superstars, and I’m excited at the opportunity to help tell their stories.”

"Hailing from Dublin, Ireland, Patrick started his career in the entertainment industry with RTE, Ireland’s National Broadcaster, where he worked on world-class soccer events and the 2004 Olympics. Since moving to the United States in 2009, he has worked for the likes of Big Ten Network, the Chicago Fire Soccer Club, beIN SPORTS, CNN International and Sirius XM.
"Patrick arrived in WWE in March of 2021, being introduced to the WWE Universe by his fellow backstage colleague, Sarah Schreiber, just a few hours ahead of making his Monday Night Raw debut. He quickly became a fixture every Monday night, not only on Raw, but as the regular co-host of Raw Talk, often times paired with on-again, off-again 24/7 Champion R-Truth.
