Last sunday i was watching the royal rumble, and it poped in my head that one of the reasons for the mistakes that the wwe commentators does is that they hype the next match or the main event while a great match is going on. i mean its not like its wrong or something but they keep doing it all the time. during the match and they dont call every move when the wrestlers do it. which is very disrespectful for the preformers. the least they could do is call the high impact moves or submission holds which bring me to onther grave mistake, because i realy started to think that those guys dont even know the name of the submissions that the wrestlers do i'll give you an example: when edge got ziggler with the Edgecator (Inverted sharpshooter) they just called it a potential submission move a friggin potential submission move!!!! i mean realy!! realy!!! o wait lit me guess its just a normal move so why we should call its name any way!!! whiles it happens to be one of edge's finishers !! DUMB ASSES!!! and i dont forget very easy you'all there was a RAW episode a while ago where they made the same mistake with CM punk doing a koji clutch to john cena and they called it an anaconda vise wtf!!!!
thoughts any one?!?!

I agree but Cole won't be going anywhere he's Vince's pet! The King i think will be hanging up his mic soon! I hope he does because if he's not fighting with cole most of the time he isn't saying anything! I was watching RAW a month back i think?( It was the Bryan Morrison match) The whole time they was talking about another match instead of the match going on! It was a freakn great match!

I could not believe my ears when Cole called a Koji Clutch an Anaconda Vice!! In the same match he called Cena a submission specialist would you believe!! The only commentators that actually know the names of moves these days are Stanford and Korpella (both are on Superstars)!! Mathews is the next best, and Striker does ok. The rest don't have a clue!! Hope Booker can do something on Smackdown, like Punk did on Raw.

Yeah I recall being amazed they even let him do that move and it was great. I feel that its been a huge let down when Punk left the mic. For a few weeks it was the best its been in years. I would watch just to listen to him. It was almost as enjoyable as JBL. While I never really liked him as a wrestler and his wrestling god thing, when he was on the mic he would make fun of both good and bad guys and was just so into it. Now its so bland and annoying. Cole being a heel is one thing but every time he talks about the miz I just want to change the channel or reach into my TV and punch him in the balls. I will say it. I miss good old JR. The man knew his wrestling holds and could still paint a vivid story picture of emotion.

I've always felt that the number one job of the commentator was to put over the competitors. With Cole's whole heel persona there's only a handful of wrestlers he doesn't bury; Striker is busy preaching; King is too busy bitching at Cole; and Matthews just seems to be getting caught in everyone's crossfire.

I really dislike the tangents they go on, instead of calling a match they sometimes just start talking about Vickie for example, even at PPVs. Cole is not solely to blame, theyre just doing what Vince wants them to do.

what happened to commentators calling the action and putting people over on commentary, JR was a prime example of that. Matt Striker was good at the beginning, now I'm happy that Booker T took over. Does anyone else agree that Matt was annoying during the appearances of Booker T and Diesel?

Why is that funny? Santino had Kozlov's gimmick before Kozlov did.

The fact that Kozlov is a USA Open Heavyweight Sambo Champion may have something to do with it...

Booker will be good as long as Booker stays out of character. Does ANYONE remember Booker T's one-time commentary in TNA back when he was in the Main Event Mafia? He had some sort of... African prince gimmick where he would come out, talk in a stupid accent we had never heard him use before, and be downright obnoxious. I honestly wish I could remember this episode exactly so I could prove how obnoxious and directionless Booker is on the mic. Someone help me?

This.... is weird. This is like some sort of Bizarro Santino. He almost looks like Kurt Angle in some of those shots. Consider my shit creeped.

that should be santino and koslov, total nonstop destructive heels, i understand that wwe needs comedy to entertain the little kids, but there is so much potential there. have the usos be the comedy team, they could dance and smile and stuff like too cool and rikishi used to be.

I know Cole has Vince in his head, but he really angers me. When I watch wrestling, I want the commentators to actually call the match. Barely any of them can do that. Cole announcing matches have taken a back seat to his heel turn and storylines.
I'm not even sure if many of them even remember the names of moves. At the Royal Rumble, a fan took notice of that, and held up a sign saying "What a Manuever!", which I believed one of them said. Thats not good.

People who need to have the moves called to enjoy their wrestling remind me of the people who need laugh-tracks to enjoy their sitcoms; they're like lost little puppies when not being pulled by a leash. Not a slam, though, so much as it is an observation.

We care obviously. For me, Its not about playing a good heel character when it comes down to being a play by play commentator. Its about making the match look like gold. Showing me why I should even watch the match in the first place. Cole bashing Miz haters and things like that are great but thats not really being a good commentator when you rely too much on that. Botching doesn't help neither.

I'm fine too with Cole worshiping the Miz, and putting him over bigtime. But when he does that during other matches, which don't have anything to do with the Miz, then it gets annoying.

so if you watch football you want them to talk about anything but is whats happening on the field,it does not matter cause you know all the players and thier boot size no you want them to call the match so even though it is a different type of calling you still want them to call a match at least some of it come on

I agree, I mean on NXT they talk about everything but the match itself and it's so annoying!

It is obvious that WWE is going in a different direction with commentary. The days of a nonbiased play by play announcer who just sits there and calls the moves is long over. Vince dismissed arguably his best old school announcer in JR to go in a different direction. The WWE is making the announcers characters just like all the wrestlers.

I think what Michael Cole is doing is great, but they just have not found a good foil for him yet.
