and I stop by sportscenter and am watching some basketball highlights and the announcer sounds so familiar, yet I can't place it.

After the highlights they go to the sports desk scene, and it's Jonathan Coachman!

How long has he been at ESPN? I usually don't watch the later editions. Has he been there for a while?

Almost a year now, I believe. I assumed his WWE delivery was a specific house style, but no. He does a fine job on ESPN.

My favorite moment of the Coachman on ESPNews era so far was the night they were showing the weigh-ins for the Lesnar/Couture. The other host, just bantering to fill out the last few seconds of the half hour, asked if Coach had any advice for Couture, and Coach responded with a "uh, no" full of demand never for such a connection to be made again. The sooner the man can get people to forgot he was connected ever to wrestling, the happier he'd be.

You can't imagine it would be fun going to work if your character is the whiny nerdy clueless announcer. It seems like eventually you'd tire of being the butt of an embarassing joke so the "boys" could have a laugh and you can get somebody over without the pain of jobbing paid talent. Then, on top of that they tried to get smart and turn one of these pushovers heel. Obviously this failed horribly but we were still fed this every week FOR ABOUT THIRTY YEARS so now the audience hates him in the old Vickie Guerrero/XPac way. Makes you think what kind of mental trauma a Kevin Kelly, Mark Lloyd, and probably Michael Cole went through.

I'm sure he never wants to talk about it again.

All those boos for Vickie are X-Pac heat? I always thought that was "good heat", due to the fact that she is an awesome heel who plays her part incredibly well. No?

I believe Craig Menervini and Todd Pettengill are at the top of the "please don't bring up me working for Vince" list.

He probably will re-appear WM weekend like he did last year which I think was the Hall of Fame. Rock called him out. Did Rock get him that ESPN gig? lol

Coach was still the Smackdown color commentator as of Wrestlemania. I remember, because he called the Edge/Undertaker match, and him and Cole were just awful through the whole match.



It is the policy of the documentary crew to remain true observers and not interfere with its subjects.

WyldeWolf, OK, let me rephrase that-- replace “suck-ups” with “apologists”. The point still stands.
