A WWE broadcaster is no longer a part of the company.

NXT Level Up announcer Sudu Shah has taken to social media to announce that he is no longer with the company. Shah acknowledged that his final day with the company was on January 10th 2023, going on to thank the audience of the show.

NXT Commentator Sudu Shah Announces WWE Departure

Yesterday was my final day with the WWE. What an incredible experience working with some of the most talented people I’ve ever met. Thank you to everyone who watched and supported every week!

Shah would provide commentary on NXT Level Up alongside former Raw announcer Byron Saxton. The new show was first introduced in February 2022, replacing the slot previously held by 205 Live. Shah provided play-by-play commentary on the debut episode, and would announce the majority of the shows until his departure.

NXT Level Up has focused on up and coming talents of the WWE Performance Center, with occasional appearances from the main NXT brand. WWE Hall of Famer Booker T is one of the current announcers on the show, and has stated he is surprised at how much he is enjoying the new role behind the desk.

The replacement for Shah is unknown at this time due to no announcement being made by the company. The commentator’s departure follows multiple changed to announce teams across all programming in recent months. The current broadcast line-up across the brand sees Corey Graves and Kevin Patrick announce Raw, Michael Cole and Wade Barrett announce SmackDown. NXT sees Booker T and Vic Joseph currently provide commentary.

NXT hosted the New Year’s Evil special episode on Tuesday, January 10th. The show would see a shocking return take place, as a former NXT star made their first appearance for the brand in over a decade.
