What's Heenan doing? How about Cyrus? Joey Styles?
While working security at a local indy show, I saw Ricky Morton's bare ass, and the next time I hear anybody out there say "playing Ricky Morton", the person they mention had best have a really nice ass.
Yecch. You just know that they're desperate to find SOMETHING for her to do. Pretty obvious they ticked "color commentator for Heat" off that list. Now, maybe "play-by-play commentator for Smackdown"...
Maybe it's a dumb question, but how does Raven benefit from going from color commentator to Heat to useless wrestler on Heat. They've ruined his wrestling credibility, in my eyes, let him announce. He's good at it. And if he's not going to do it, then let Booker T and Goldust do it, that's comedic gold.
HOLLY: How do you like me now? COLE: You're a jerk Holly! ME: (sigh) Cole ruins everything!
I usually give a lot of love to the ladies, I Like Lilian doing ring announcing and enjoy Lil's backstage interview (her and Benoit ruled). I thought Trish did a very good job on Excess. She was professional and was the straight-(wo)man of the commentary duo, and was good (unless you have guest wrestlers that came in that were drunk 'APA" or acting like dickheads 'HHH')
And I wanted Jackie to do good, I truly wanted, I wanted to stick it to the hacks who heard word of this and judged "aww this is awful" I wanted to say, "it wasn't that bad and it wasnt' awful" BUT it was THAT bad and it was AWful...lol... for poor Jackie we see her be a wrestler, to a ref now to colour commentary, now bringing in a "another" Jackie from TE I wonder how much time this vet has.
You know what my pipe dream is"? that week in and week out they bring out gawd-awful commentators, from BigShow mumbling to X-pac annoying as hell voice or bring in jobbers to do colour and after a few weeks bring in Terri and after once segment CYRUS comes out throws her ass out and SAVE WWE play by play.
I don't get it, everyone loves rats, but they don't want to drink the rats milk?
Guys I'd like to see go at as a commentator (if they use musical chairs) include Christian, Lance Storm, Kevin Nash (if you saw the Thunder in September or October 99 where he was a guest announcer - you'll know what I'm talking about), Booker T, and god knows who else... They've got a crazy talented group of guys with fantastic mic skills. Go with the heels to terrorize or insult Coach - you'll be hard pressed to find fans who feel sorry for him. (IE: Michael Cole - circa 1997 with DX)
well, according to the ross report it's muscial chairs for the next few weeks. why not michael hayes? he used to do Jakked/metal. my vote is for Sharmell, remember her as Paisley back in WCW??? she can call a match. otherwise, bring back curt hennig or (in my dreams) Mike Tenay.

Raven doesn't WANT to be a commentator. It was his request to go back to wrestling.
Mean Gene: "You know, I don't think it's a question - Goldberg, I don't think it's a question of who's next, I think it's a question of who's left?"
Goldberg: "No, see, that's where you're wrong. It ain't who's left, it's - WHO'S NEXT?"

I kept shaking my head in disbelief during Heat saying, "WHY did they let this go on the air, for godsakes?!" Couldn't they have done some kind of edit job by not showing the announcers and just having Coach talking? Man, that was pitiful!
"Yeah Cokes, ise agrees, this match be gude! OH MAIN!"
Thank God that Ross has confirmed she is not the full-time commentator.
Now to Raven - he may still be the Heat guy, but he WAS on Raw last week in a weird little segment...kind of a street prophet or something. Why did he have FATE written on his chest this week? And is it just me, or did he get new, more intense (better) music? He needs to ditch the kilt. I know the grunge look is so 12 years ago, but he could do something instead of a kilt.

I've still got this never-to-be-realized hope that they'll bring in both Mikey Tenay and Stevie Ray for Heat. Tenay can give intelligent play-by-play AND provide good color. And Stevie Ray, well... Suckahs gots ta know!

Jar Jar Binks was a guest commentator too? If I can be serious for a moment (sorry Lance...), she was just terrible. I give credit to Coach for not laughing his ass off at how bad she was...she made him look like Gordon Solie by comparison.
I don't think this is a dichotomy. WWE's drug program having a double standard and talent realizing that after suspecting it for a long time is a pretty important story. WWE PPVs are still talked about, paid for, reviewed, and even praised.
