Todd Grisham joined WWE as an announcer on Jan. 14, 2004, bringing his wit, dry humor and enthusiasm to the RAW brand. His tour of duty through WWE television includes hosting the international edition of Bottom Line and co-hosting The WWE Experience with Ivory. He is now announcing Sunday Night HEAT alongside Jonathan Coachman.
Born in Hattiesburg, Miss. -- home of the Green Bay Packers’ Brett Favre -- Grisham and his family moved around a great deal, but he spent the bulk of his childhood in Bay Minette, Ala. After college, he obtained a job as a sports anchor in Ottumwa, Iowa. In his year and a half there, working at KTVO, Ottumwa’s only local affiliate, he did everything -- shooting, editing, putting on his own makeup.
When he was offered a job in Tucson, Ariz., the No. 70 media market, he jumped at the chance and relocated, becoming the youngest reporter at any station in Tucson. He spent four years as a sports reporter and weekend sports anchor for KOLD, the town’s CBS affiliate, primarily covering the Arizona Wildcats. But he also reported on teams from Phoenix, so he’s been to the Final Four and Game 7 of the World Series and has also worked with the NFL, NBA, NHL and PGA.
He said his goal is to learn from people such as Jim Ross -- whom Grisham calls “the greatest play-by-play guy ever” -- and become the best announcer he can.
“Wrestlers come here to be the best wrestlers in the world,” he said. “I want to be the best commentator.”
