New backstage correspondent joins WWE SmackDown


The SmackDown broadcast team will have a new member starting with tonight's show.

WWE has announced that former New England Patriots broadcaster Megan O'Brien has joined the company as a backstage correspondent for SmackDown. She's now using the name Megan Morant in WWE.

"I can't begin to express how excited I am to join WWE," O'Brien told "From the incredibly athletic Superstars to the creative minds behind the scenes, WWE has set the standard in the world of global entertainment. The passion WWE has for its fans reminds me of why I chose this industry, to entertain and connect people from all walks of life. I'm forever grateful for this opportunity and ready to hit the ground running. Let's go!"

O'Brien was born in Chicago, Illinois and graduated from Northwestern University. Prior to working for the New England Patriots, she was a digital correspondent for the Big East conference and was a broadcaster for the Cape Cop Baseball League.

The SmackDown commentary team got a new member as Pat McAfee made his debut last week. McAfee is calling the show alongside Michael Cole.

Last month, Kevin Egan (now using the name Kevin Patrick) joined the Raw broadcast team as a backstage correspondent. He's also co-hosting Raw Talk and doing commentary for Main Event.
