Who do you guys think is the worst announcer in WWE?

Currently I would say it's a toss up between Coach and Mark Loyd. Coach is probably worse though because he's been around a couple years and still sucks.

Why doesn't WWE replace Coach with Josh Matthews? Then he can stop asking me "What's poppin' Canada?" Plus I think Matthews would be better than Coach anyways.

Also who do you think are some of the worst WWE announcers of all time? I'd go with Sean Mooney, Craig DeGeorge, Lord Alfred Hayes.

I seem to remember Shane'o Mac doing a rather piss poor announcing job on Heat a few years ago... and Vince wasn't all that much better either, announcing wise.

VKM was probably the worst WWF play-by-play man. (OH YES!!! AND ANOTHER GREAT MOVE!!! HE REALLY PUMPED!! OH NO!! THE CROWD IS GOING CRAZY!) It cracked me up to hear good ol' JR ripping on the boss during Ross' Heel announcer angle. I'd love to see Ross turn heel again and bad mouth the WWE product.

Outside WWE, remember when Juvitud was a color man for a couple nitro's? It was so bad it was hilarious (a la Shockmaster).

Lita's actually improved, as of late. I'd say Mark Lloyd of the current stock, Jackie of all time.

I've never understood all the hate on this board for Sean Mooney and LORD ALFRED~! Both of them were really cool, in my opinion.

Lord Alfred always had the SPECIAL REPORTS with footage of Earthquake squashing Damien and stuff. How could you not like that?

Mooney also had a pretty good run in Boston as the NBC affilate afternoon news anchor. This was post-McMahon, which made the news semi hard to watch. I kept thinking he'd lapse into his event center hooey.

"A shootout in a gentlemen's club in Peabody has left three dead. Elesewhere, the British Bulldog and the Warlord will have a special full-nelson challenge on the Orange Line. Mayor Menino has refused to comment on the Boss Man's mother, but Governor Weld will meet Tatanka in a steel cage."

Worst announcer? Todd Masengill.

You want the worst of all time? Give this one to Todd Pentingill, the single most annoying WWF personality of all time. I don't know who that man blew to get a job, especially for as long as he did.

Give honorable mention to Mark Madden. Some of the things that came out of his mouth were just so incredibly stupid that my head STILL hurts.

I know you asked about WWF but, you can't have a thread about the worst wrestling announcer without David Crockett being mentioned. He was the brother of Jim Crockett and he used to work with Tony Schiavone on the NWA shows in the mid to late '80s. He made Vince McMahon seem like a Hall of Fame announcer. This was the typical David Crockett contribution while announcing a match.

"Look at him. Look at him, Tony. He's gonna get him. There it is. He's got him, Tony. Hit him. Hit him."

It was kind of funny though when Robert Gibson had Jim Cornette's belt during a Rock & Roll Express vs. Midnight Express match and Crockett was screaming, "Whip him! Whip him like a dog!"

Probably here I'd say Dok Hendrix, Jim Cornette, and Sweet Stan Lane. Hendrix was just too bland, Cornette's whiny voice kills a match for me, and Stan Lane was always only half-committed to his commentary. You knew he'd rather be off fuckin'. But then, who wouldn't. Even Gorilla Monsoon would rather...Uh...Withdrawn! Stricken! Whew...Safe.

I don't understand all the Lord Alfred bashing. He was classy!

You also can't say bad things about Art Donovan. He is a football personality from up around this area. He's freaking hilarious. If anyone ever gets the chance to hear him talk about football, make it a point to be there.

Worst of all time? Todd Pettengill. SHUDDER!

And I always liked Lord Afred too.

David Crockett, hands down. "PICKS HIM UUUUUUP......suplex."

"Hey Warriors, you want some of Dusty Rhodes? Go in there an' gidim!!!"

Also on the David Crockett tip, if anyone ever hears his commentary on the Danger Zone tape where Ron Garvin defeats Ric Flair for the NWA title, he also says, at one point,
"An' he sed he wuzz gonna beat him for HIS title!" Bad edit or no, he sounded like a complete dumb-ass!

Oh yeah, and of course, "Look at 'im! HA HA! Look at Shaska-- Shaska Whatley, dat bald-headed geek!"

What a prat!

Plus, Doyle King in Global from around 1993 was just ATROCIOUS! It sounded like he had a frog in his throat constantly, like he gargled Elmer's Glue every morning or something.

And also, Terry Simms, who was calling himself Terry Garvin, who did color opposite Mark Lowrance in the USWA, was a total ass-clown too. He was WAY off the scale, according to Scott Keith's Johnny B. Badd-o-meter, and I think it was probably some inside joke that the USWA pulled to make fun of the WWF and the sex scandal with Pat Patterson and a guy named-- you guessed it-- Terry Garvin (That may be just conjecture on my part, though).



David Crockett sez it best, folks: "Look at 'im, Tony! Look at 'im!"

Amen to that one. At first, my boyfriend started hitting the "mute" button during Heat at my request, because I can't stand Lita in any way, shape, or form.

This past Sunday, he finally caved in and said, "enough, I can't take this, she's so bad" & hit the button before I asked him to do so.

Other candidates for the announcer hall of suck? Mark Madden & Don West.

This is all you need to know about David Crockett: He made Tony Schiavone seem like the second coming of Gordon Solie in comparison to him.
Of course, some of the great names have been left of the list: Mongo McMichael. Lee Marshall. Lee Marshall. (he was so bad, he deserves to be placed here for both his AWA and WCW tenures). Superstar Billy Graham.



I want you to know, I agree with everything I've just said.

Agreed. Mongo was not good. Maybe he'll be on the Raw flashback, hitting somebody in the head with that Haliburton while he has that little dog stuck in his letterman's jacket.

If you think Hogan had WCW's biggest sweetheart deal, he had nothing on Lee Marshall. Marshall was flown in First Class from California each week to do Thunder! Lee Marshall's best work was on WOW. Next to McLaine, he sounded like Marv Albert.

Schiovone was very good in the WWF. He was an excellent target for Jesse's wrath and he was not disillusioned by the business yet.

I'm surprised that with all the recent talk about the greatest moments in the history of RAW, that we have all forgotten one of the first announcers ever to call RAW...and in my opinion, one of the worst of all time.
