    Is Michael Cole really that bad?

    I've noticed that it has been a while since I heard someone complain about Michael Cole's commentary. I remember about 2 years ago when this forum just tore him to shreds, clamoring for Jim Ross to return, muting the entire broadcast, etc. I know that some are going to say that his heel character has toned down drastically since, but people really questioned his commentary skills.

    I for one, never understood so much bashing. I have always thought he has done a great job taking over for JR. He was given the daunting task of filling those ENORMOUS shoes.

    So I was wondering if I am the only one who thought that people overreacted?

    How do you rate him now that you don't want to punch his face in as opposed to his Cole-miner days?

    He's perfectly serviceable in his position. And nowhere near as awful as the current state of Lawler.

    I have no problem with him now. His heel character was terribly annoying though.

    When Michael Cole was doing his whole "May I have your attention please" thing and had a match at Wrestlemania, I hated him. But his commentary is fine, much better than Jerry Lawler. If anything it should be him, Jbl, and (hopefully one day) Paul Heyman on commentary.

    None of the current commentators are great. Cole is fine, but nothing outstanding. I'd rather have Regal as one of the team on the main shows.

    He's not nearly as bad but he still is an idiot on commentary. "we have never seen this before" for both the mark henry big show ring collapse and big e overpowering kane lol. I mean really we know this shit happened, are they going to pretend it never happened like chris benoit? Every few shows he spews out garbage like that or random nonsense about the wrestlers like kofi "bringing the belt home" lol.

    Id like to hear JBL and Cm Punk on commentary.

    Michael Cole isnt that bad, but im just bored with him. I guess I just hate all of the buzzwords, but thats not really his fault.

    Id still take him over Jerry King ANY day.

    Yes Cole is still not good at calling the action in my opinion.

    And I wish it wasn't pg for lawler to be a better commentator, love jbl..josh matthews is the best at calling what is going on in the ring.

    For the record, Matt striker has great wrestling knowledge, he was just annoyingat it and over did it.
