It's that thread again: name 3 reasons why you hate Michael Cole
- He keeps calling a power slam a "scoop slam"
- He has a terrible voice for commentary in general
- He raped a baby
He is the absolute worst play-by-play commentator. When he's not simply screaming wrestler's names like it means anything, he's calling shit "throws" and "slams" and being an overall annoying cunt.
I wish WWE would hand Matt Striker a million dollars.
> What is the problem, is Vince in his ear?
That's the main problem. Either Vince, or Dunn in Vince's absence.
Now granted, Cole has his own problems that can't be blamed on Vince or anyone else. His catchphrases are corny. He botches every now and then (although to be fair, so did JR). Some people just don't like his actual voice on commentary because it sounds too proper, 'corporate' and fake (particularly when he laughs).
But even with those flaws, he would still be MUCH better if he was allowed to do commentary the way he used to. Many people don't realize that he is literally told to ignore the moves in the ring, and to put major focus on certain people while talking. Even Joey Styles touched on this during his worked shoot.
"Tell me, Cole why do you like the Miz so much?"
"Well its simple Jerry, because he's the Miz!"
> "And he's AWWESOME"
he has no credibility. guys who are worth listening to like booker, vince, and jerry are worth listening to because they eat, breathe, and sleep wrestling. they've been cornerstones of major wrestling organizations. they've held world titles.
michael cole is just some guy telling me what he thinks for three hours a week, and i don't fucking care because he's nobody.
This match is so great, but Tazz and Cole are making it that much better.
I can't believe it, I'm so used to the numbing commentary of "unique offensive", "what strength" and "OOOO".
This commentary actually feels like commentary. Fucking crazy.
really though, it all comes down to this
