  2. He was his best in 2000, right after the Rock's first SNL appearance, doing all those various imitations. Pretty funny guy when allowed to be...

    Only memorable thing about the Show was the match with Brock Lesnar when the ring broke after Lesnar hit a superplex.

    A great moment and angle.

    Apologies for the back-to-back posts, but my GOD, Michael Cole and Jonathan Coachman are the worst announcing team this side of Tony Schiavone and Stagger Lee Marshall. Less is NOT more, idiots! SAY SOMETHING!

    I've always hated the announcers who try to hard to be heels.

    Jerry Lawler and Jesse Ventura were naturals. Coach is pathetic.

    But coach is amazing calling a football game in the booth. I wonder why he sucks so much in WWE?

    Probably because it's scripted, and he knows what's going to happen beforehand.

    Lawler admitted in his book that he skipped all the production meetings in WWE because he didn't want to know what was going to happen. He could call the match better on the fly.

    Agree. When Paul Wight was given a chance to be funny, he was gold. I also am a big fan (and always have been) of the bigger wrestlers -- guys like Andre and Earthquake and Typhoon back in the day to Yokozuna in the early to mid 90s and guys like Big Show now.

    It wasn't what Cole and Coach were saying that made me hate them as a team. It's what they weren't saying.

    For at least a minute at a stretch.

    While there were things going on in the ring.

    If you DVRd/TiVod it, go back and watch the end of the Noble/Palumbo segment. Brutal.
  12. Better than the TNA team, who talk over EVERYTHING.
