Cole and Lloyd called the action on Velocity this week and it was CLASSIC. Lines of the night from Cole to Lloyd consisted of:
Lloyd: Randy Orton looks a good fifteen pounds BIGGER than when he JOINED the WWE!
Cole: You don't know that.
Lloyd: Yes, I do!
Cole: Really? What, did you ask him?
Lloyd: Well, no...but...
Lloyd: Let me ask you something, Michael Cole, what exactly did it FEEL like, kissing Nidia?
Cole: Hey, at least I kiss GIRLS, Lloyd.
Highlights included the teaming of Orton and Holly, in a great match with Billy and Chuck as well as Orton vs. Funaki in an incredible match, ending with a Funaki PROMO! Classic. I can't say it any better, show gets better every week, I just wish I was home more often Saturday Nights (maybe not...).
In summation, heel Coles Rulez! Please, beli-you know the rest.
A friend of mine's sister's cousin saw Benoit walking through an airport.
Me: Was he selling? He shouldn't have been if he was. I mean it IS just an airport.
---=---:---=--- [Look up a line] Wow, that belt looks like crap... I'll take it and carry it around for years and see if people can take it away from me... What? What was that? You mean even THIS belt doesn't matter! What? I'm insulted! Get away from me you... you... defiler!
Y'all are just evil HATAS. Lloyd is AWESOME. He gets his hair cut by Rico- can any of YOU say that?
Cole is an absolute dick to him, and Marc just usually no-sells it, or responds with the instant classic "Whatever".
WBTDeion mentioned the Nidia line, but MC was ragging on Lloyd all night about his sexuality. When Marc questioned why Funaki gets to visit the women's locker room instead of him, Cole replied "because you LIKE spending time in the men's locker room" and later had a line about Lloyd visiting all the rest areas en route to the arena. While poor Lloyd continues being the victim of the vicious MC, I will say that Cole cuts better heel lines than much of the roster does during times that count.
Originally posted by DJ FrostyFreeze Whenever I see Mark Lloyd do one of those back stage interviews, every one always comes off like it's his very first and he's never interviewed anyone before in his life.
Well that's one of the things that's so COOL about him. He always looks shocked and genuinely happy to have his job.
I think Cole was just happy to be on TV with someone who's an even bigger DORK than he is.
That`s kind of how it came off the last time they teamed up on Velocity. Michael Cole finally had someone to pick on as an announce partner, sorta getting back for all the years that everyone else has verbally berated him. And it was pretty amusing too!

Cole was killing Loyd on Velocity. Slamming him for hanging around the men's locker room, being the number 2 Smackdown interviewer behind Funaki, his preference for kissing men and hanging out in the men's rooms of interstate rest areas. It was non-stop, Loyd was just overwhelmed.

Loyd: "Nidia had her tongue jammed down your throat!"
Cole: "At least I kiss girls."

I think he is probably contracted to do x number of house shows over his entire contract. This means WWE decided to have him do none whilst he was not champion, 'saving' them up for when he was champion so the champion was always on the road.
