Today was the firs time I've caught Velocity in a long, long time...and five minutes after I turned it on, I turned the volume off.

Why?

Ernest Miller.

What the hell is the WWE thinking? This damn guy is ridiculously dull, boring, and almost impossible to understand. Not to the Ahmed Johnson degree, but close...

I missed Velocity for a long time...and I'm quite glad now that I did. Maybe if I tune out for another bit of time, they'll fix this problem, and release the Cat from his announcing duties. Get him an on camera role on Velocity as a wrestler, but LEAVE HIM OFF THE MIC!

Oh well. Vince, are you listening?

I remember him in WCW, when he was the Commissioner. His main problem was with Lance Storm and Team Canada. He was so cool and so funny.

Straight from Slash Wrestling:

..."Now chump, I got one thing to say - I have spoken!" Storm goes to leave, but Cat tells him to "skitch yo' ass in the ring!"

You don't happen to remember what tonights Matt Facts were, do you? I've been writing them all down and I missed it tonight because I was at work.

The only one I remember was that Matt Hardy is the star of the Hardy Boyz book.

And of course there was the immortal "Someone call my momma, I just whooped the whole Armstrong family! Where's Bullet Bob?"

Dammit, I miss the old Cat

It is weird. The Cat The Commentator has always been awful but The Cat The Commissioner was great stuff.

I still think Josh is amazing considering his lack of experience. You need to focus on Josh and tune out The Cat kind of like I do with Tenney and West or how I used to tune out Tony Shivonne.

Speaking of which, what the hell happened to Evil Tony on NWA/TNA? Did I miss him getting squashed or did they just pull a Russo?

You ain't kiddin SOK, he is really bad. I didn't watch it this week but when I do he's one of the worst in recent history. I think I could live with over the top annoying like Jackie was that one week on Heat. But when he mumbles his words and sound bored like Ernest Miller is, that is just too awful, I give bonus props to Josh Matthews for doing his part in spite or Miller.

I was never a big Miller fan, but certainly his WCW talk was better then now. I'm guessing it's easier to talk about yourself and be clever for 5-7 minutes and put yourself and or opponent over. But talking for an hour and putting a bunch of people that have nothing to do with you over and to make it sound like you care, I'm guessing that's much more difficult.

It's very weird. On that Friday's Ross Report Borash Report, it said (in one sentence) that Tony is basically gone and he ain't coming back. That leads me to believe he ALREADY pissed somebody off, and from Bobby Heenan's book, I wouldn't doubt it.

As for the subject at hand, I remember being so vocal about wanting the Cat on my TV. But now I regret doing so. I mean, his commentary never USED to be that bad. Anybody else remember the dying days of WCW when Miller would take the headset and he'd start laying into Mark Madden? Those were the days.

There have actually been times on Velocity, and I think this happened last night, when Josh realizes that The Cat's just kind of sitting there doing nothing, so he tries to get him to say something, anything. It's usually a "I know you know what I'm talking about, right Cat?" or something along those lines. I always kind of figured it was Matthews' disguised cry for help: "Somebody get me a good announce partner!"

I've said it before, but I will now reiterate my contention, that Miller should be replace by Stevie Ray!

I've been telling my friends for a while that Josh has been carrying The Cat on Velocity commentary. It is good to know that there are others who share my sentiment.

I never saw anything in the Cat, personally. I watched WCW religiously and could never stand him. Clearly someone high up (Bischoff) liked him to give him so many opportunities, but he couldn't wrestle and always had a mush mouth during promos, so he was as useless as possible in my eyes.
Somebody better call his momma, cause the Cat needs to be canned.

The whole dancing shtick, the James Brown impressions, the "Somebody call my mama...!" promos --- I loved that shit in WCW. He was the perfect example of a guy who knew that the angles he was saddled with weren't worth a shit but did his best to rise above them.

The Cat needs to be back in the ring....NOW dammit!!!

I think it's criminal that the black hole of charisma that is Sean Morley has the role as Bischoff's bootlick on Raw while The Cat is garbling commentary on heat. Ernest Miller would be PERFECT as the Chief of Staff on Raw.

Cat-Bo ruled. And Miller "tutoring" the Yung Dragons was pretty awesome. But other than that, I wasn't a big Cat fan.

Yes, Josh definitely deserves Big Bonus Points for having Cat as his announce partner, & still doing a good show. Maybe this is the announcer equivalent of getting the crap beaten out of you by Bob Holly to earn credability.

the one great thing about Cat as an announcer is that it means no Cat as a wrestler.
