I miss him broskis. He made SMAckdown feel like a real sports show. Why does WWE have to ruin everything they get right.
>>
I'm sorry he had a mental breakdown, but he was insufferable as an announcer
>>
>>2698857

His fault for being a whiny nu-male cuck
>>
Phillips is fine but god I miss having somebody who actually called the moves what they are.

I'm so sick of "OH!" and "PLANTED!" and for fuck's sake, Phillips called one of Styles' moves a "fireman's carry neckbreaker." Motherfucker, just call it the motherfucking Ushigoroshi.
>>
>>2698879

Mauro called it a Fireman's Carry too.
>>
*makes black pop culture reference at you*
>>
>>2698886
Actually he not only called it an Ushigoroshi but name-dropped Goto too.
>>

Vince (rightly) explictly hated that Mauro called the "ushigoroshi"

M'kay.

I miss him too bro. Don't worry, he'll inevitably be commentating for GOAT Japan within the year.
>>
>>2698857
I'm not
Been watching some NJPW on AX TV episodes and the little faggot is insufferable. He's tolerable in small doses, but listening to him every week is torture. I am convinced that only nu-male cucks enjoy his gay commentary and my only regret is that JBL didn't give him a Clothesline From Hell as a parting gift.

I liked Mauro, but Tom Phillips is fine. Sounds like a real announcer, calls the action more or less straight, and doesn't sound like he's going through the motions when it's time to emote. Hell, even Saxton's been bugging me less. Hard to imagine it, but he really is a step up from Otunga.

Frankly though, I'd rather Mauro stay future-endeavored than go back to that fucking four-man booth. The fuck was that?

>>2698905
>Vince (rightly) explictly hated that Mauro called the "ushigoroshi"

If he did, Mauro never would have been allowed to do it twice. Even Cole has worked the Japanese names in a few times since. It's possible that Vince had one of his trademark changes of heart and it's going away, but it definitely wasn't unapproved.
>>
>>2699756
>I'd rather somebody be fired than WWE simply change their booth configuration
>>
>>2699719
Why would he be fired?
>>
>>2699771
'Cause he's a shitty announcer.

During the tag team match last week where Breezango had a chance to become tag team champions, every five seconds he was screaming NO THEY CAN'T BE CHAMPS THEY'RE WEIRD THEY'RE WEIRD THIS WOULD BE TERRIBLE I HATE THIS AAAAAAAAUUUUGH. He completely drowned out the actual match with his autistic ranting. It went far beyond heel commentary and just became a fat old man sperging out.

You do realize that literally every move has a corresponding Japanese name, right? Do you think the announcers should call everything in Japanese?
>>
>>2699923
Is the heel announcer supposed to make me not want to watch the product because he won't stop shrieking over the match?

If so, good job. He worked me right into turning the show off after that tag match.

Expalain why he should call it by a Japanese name for an American audience. You see how that doesn't make sense? You don't have to be an e-drone to realize that.
>>
>>2699983
Because AJ Styles became famous in Japan, they introduced him as a former IWGP Champion, Styles' history in Japan is an absolutely undeniable part of his character. Calling one of his moves by its Japanese name keeps that consistent.
>>
>>2699993
Shouldnt they learn the bulgarian names of all of rusevs moves then

Rusev literally has a move called the Machka Kick.
>>
>>2700001
That's his catch phrase, it's not equivalent.
>>
>>2699993
Are you kidding? WWE doesn't even talk about that anymore. And in reality an American audience knows him more for his TNA run than anything else. Being a big time wrestler from Japan is not really his gimmick.
>>
>>2699983
Because it's what the move is called.

Unless you know a more famous name for it.

>American audience
>WORLD Wrestling Entertainment
>currently attempting Indian expansion

>>2699997
Not even remotely the same thing, dimwit.
>>
>>2700021
In Japanese. In English it's called a Fireman's carry neckbreaker.
>>
>>2699971
If that's its proper name yeah.
>>
>>2700025
Who says they must call a move by a proper name instead a generic name?
>>
>>2700024
So what do you call Suplexes?
>>
>>2700015
It really is, but fine, to follow your analogy through logically, what moves was Rusev using in Bulgaria with Bulgarian names before he came to WWE?

>>2700016
Yeah, I don't think that's right at all. WWE will reference his Japanese exploits from time to time but they'll never mention TNA.

You need to at least concede that a sizable part of his character is that he was an internationally accomplished wrestler who traveled the world and took the long road to WWE and within those parameters, calling the Ushigoroshi by its Japanese name is consistent.

For goodness sake, his jacket has Japanese writing on it.
>>
>people getting triggered over what the moves are called

No one gets assblasted about the enziguri or hurricanranna
>>
>>2700016
>WWE doesn't even talk about that anymore.

They literally mentioned his IWGP Title reign last week
>>
>>2700033
I would call them Suplexes. What's your point?

It's not an English word.

>>2699359
This.
Keep that nigger shit confined to NBA games and ESPN
>>
>>2700067
But it has become the general purpose term for the move. Not some obscure proper name.
>>
>>2700084
>obscure

But it's called Ushigoroshi in WWE anon ;^P
>>
>>2700089
Says who, besides Mauro?

Mauro is an awesome MMA and boxing commentator, and a horrible wrestling announcer (at least what I've seen him call for WWE)
>>
>>2700096
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjOIBUYVvBY

>>2700099
I agree. He lacks the storytelling that a master like JR executed so well. Even compared to Cole, he lacks.
>>
>>2700096
Tom Phillips
>>
>>2700096

it's also called the Tye-Breaker in WWE senpai
>>
>>2700109
Tye actually changed the way he does the Tye Breaker. It's now kinda done like an F5 instead of an Attitude Adjustment.
>>
>>2700103
Then what the hell are we arguing about? If the WWE is calling it that then what's your problem?
>>
>>2700106
even MAGGLE knows that he sucks ass

>>2700099
This doesn't even make sense, commentating at boxing or MMA requires far more skill than WWE
>>
>>2700120
That was a couple weeks ago. This is this week.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5i_klSsCM0

It's conspicuous as shit and obviously something he was directed to do, especially after he called it the proper name before that.

No it doesn't, it just requires different skills. You can be fantastic at calling complex min by min sequences in boxing/MMA but shit at leading your audience through the larger storyline of a WWE angle. Apples and oranges.
>>
>>2700136

Well I'll defend any promotion's right to call moves by the general or proper names they prefer.

I hated this guy, was basically just a talking can of Chef boyardee, all he could say is "mama mia!" in that fake gravel voice, a literal autistic, I have to tell myself that people are trolling on here when they compliment his skills otherwise I could never come back, he makes Michael Cole look like J.R.

Someone, I'm guessing Vince, hates calling non-finishers. I was surprised by how many moves Cole knew during the UK tournament. He'd rather announcers use generic terminology so as not to alienate the audience..Phillips was calling it by it's proper name until last week. Maybe he wanted to try something different, maybe Dunn got on him about it.
