It is my thought with the WWE wanting to go in a new direction, the best thought and idea would be to bring in Joey Styles as the head commentator on RAW. I have always been a big fan of his work. Heck, if people could get Matt Hardy back in the fold in the WWE, couldn't there be a way for our voices to be heard if we all wanted Styles? Anyone have any thoughts.

All caps aside, I think Styles is in the lead for the job now purely by default. If they want to hire him, they will. Otherwise they'll have to go searching and who knows who they'll end up with (aside from Coach/Bischoff taking over during the search).

I'd keep Ross over Styles though. As much as I think Ross and Lawler are just spent at this point (Lawler can't even be bothered to pretend to be jerking off to Trish's "Bending over waiting for my opponent" cleavage pose anymore, if that's any indication of how far his interest has fallen) they at least have chemistry, and I don't see Styles and Lawler with any.

Plus I don't like Styles at all. That might also be coloring my opinion of how well he'd fit.

You know... if the WWE really wants to play-up the Bischoff-is-in-charge-and-will-do-whatever-he-wants storyline, there's a certain bloated, hyperbolic announcer named Tony sitting on the shelf...

Whoever takes over for JR will be de facto hated by the (non-Internet) audience anyway, so you might as well bring in a guy that WWE fans are already programmed to hate. And besides, Tony would provide a spit-take moment on the WWE's new (old) network -- and would afford McMahon an opportunity to humiliate yet another ex-WCW personality.

Hey... stranger things have happened... although bringing in an announcer who's actually FAMILIAR with wrestling is probably counter-strategy for the WWE right now...

Joey Styles taking the job he's previously turned down many times seems EXTREMEly unlikely. Please find some other place to start your online petitions.

Also, he sees an ex-play-by-play guy every time he looks in the mirror.
