Contract not renewed, today was his last day.

My favorite Matt Striker moment was when Johnny Curtis chloroformed him and stuck him in dumpster.

My least favorite moment was all the other moments. Especially the matches on Heat right after he signed.

(It's not an easy role. He was very annoying.)

Not a surprise at all, as he slid further and further down the totem pole in recent years. I kinda enjoyed his nerdy, pop-culture color commentary, i.e. his references to "the poet Christopher Wallace" and then The Smiths for Regal. And thanks to him, the Tree of Woe will always be "The Tree of Joey Lawrence, the tree of WHOA!"

I think the Bill Simmons article where he just takes him to town was amazing. I didn't mind him. To be fair, I am so sick of the entire commentating team including JBL that I am glad to see Colt Cabana get an interview today.

He had a good gimmick and a good handle on it, but he had nothing distinctive in the ring. And now Damien Sandow has the snooty intellectual character.

I'll never forgive him for that time I went to another wrestling site and they had stuck his pecker on the front page.

To this day, I have never gone to another site.

I always liked Striker & was one of the few WWE commentators I really liked hearing. I mean it's cool that Colt is getting another chance there but at least Striker is still respected around the Indies so I think he'll getting around.

Didn't he seal his fate when he missed the call in that Orton-Barrett match when Cena had to "join" the Nexus if Orton lost? "Cena is free!" I may have my stories crossed.

Also shocking to recall Barrett in the main events.

Yeah, I liked the actual cleverness too. That's a bummer -- I like Matt.

I liked him, I really did. He was very different to what they offered at the time - and to an extent he still would be, but in a three-man booth I'd take JBL over him any day of the week, considering Cole and King are a necessary evil.

But then he got grating after a while. A big reason, the same one that Bill Simmons went to town on him for (sports.espn.go.com) was the whole "perhaps the most..." he had for EVERY single guy who walked down the ramp.

Nice interview here from Striker about his release and where he goes from here. Like him or hate him, he's been a class act about the whole thing and the guy clearly has a genuine passion for wrestling. I feel for him when he says he has trouble connecting with people, and I hope he can find a spot where he's truly happy in the future.

Actually, I would have liked to see a mega-heel Canadian faction consisting of the Un-Americans, Benoit, and Jericho. That would have been great, but it probably would have left SD! in a bad way.
