I thought Al Snow would make a great commentator. He's one of my favorite wrestlers and is a hilarious guy. What the hell went wrong. He was so terrible on heat.... :(

I'm giving him top marks just for one exchange he had with Coach while talking about Jazz's balloon celebration

Coach says "You notice there wasn't one white balloon during Teddy Long's celebration
Snow replies "Aren't those the national colors of Africa?"
Coach after an uncomfortable pause "Well.. Yeah that too"

That was just classic.

Snow just has to cut down on the Lawlerisms during pins that aren't crossbody and he'll be fine... Plus you have to give more then one show to get a feel of someone's style.

I didn't think he was that bad. He seemed a little stiff and uncomfortable, but give him a couple of weeks and he'll be fine.

He did a good job during the Ivory/Molly match, when he was talking about the fine points of working over a body part to win a match.

Al just isn't used to being a commentator. He's already better than Lita ever was, and I like Lita. You can't expect him to settle in on his first day. Considering the shit he had to work with, I think he did okay, and in a few weeks I think he'll be fine for the job.

Snow reminded me of Tazz before Tazz was the polished commentator he is now. Some good wisecracks, some good insight, but he didn't have the flow down but that will come with time.

They do have Paul Heyman SITTING AT HOME and if they're not going to let him do anything creatively, let him take over for Lawler on RAW. I remember when people said his new position as "creative consultant" wasn't a demotion.

Snow was alright on Heat. He mentioned Tough Enough a couple of times.

Raven was the best of the Heat commentators. Snow's no Raven, but he's also no D-Lo who sucked on Heat.

Al's been a Heat commentator before and he's never been very good, though anything is an improvement over Lita. Al, who has done very fun promos, doesn't seem to be made for commentary. Being good on promos does not a good commentator make.

Lita' best moment on Heat was when she said that Aaron Aguilera was one of the Conquistadors.

Jackie and Crash were awful, really awful.

I'll give him half credit. "National colors of Africa"? Last I heard, Africa was a *continent* made up of 50 odd *nations*.

The days do certainly feel numbered, in a lot of ways. Which is a bit of a shame, because I actually REALLY like Bischoff's character... I always have.
