I have recently been lamenting the loss of the true heel commentator in WWE. Mostly because JBL is not as heelish as he used to be on the mic. Although I still love what he does and concede that he does still cheer for the heels, he's also offsetting that with constant kudos to the good guys too.
King and JBL both used to do heel commentary and it was great, it would create great banter. Geez, even Cole had a turn at the heel and I have to wonder if maybe they didn't overdo it with the Cole/JR angle and thats what finally killed the good ol' heel commentator. I also think that having no commentators blatantly backing the bad guy has contributed to the rise of heel supporting smarks. I can almost guarantee that if Lawler were singing Punks praises every minute of the day, Punk would lose a few fans. I guess this gives the heels in WWE another element but I still miss a heel on commentary.
Mostly though, I miss the old JBL.
