Announce team changes

Post by NickisBHAFC on Fri Jan 09, 2015 9:54 am

Raw will now be Micheal Cole, JBL and Booker T

Smackdown will now be Micheal Cole, Byron Saxton and Jerry Lawler

PPV's will continue to be Micheal Cole, JBL and Jerry Lawler

Don't really understand why Tom Phillips has been binned.

Agree with you Nick, At least Phillips calls most of the moves correctly. Pleased Booker's on Raw, as you can usually rely on him to make one unintentionally hilarious comment a week.

Yes! King is being phased out! Wonderful news. And I LOVE Booker, the man is comedy gold. He's not arrogant like Cole and JBL, he generally seems interested in putting over everyone in the ring and there's a certain credibility to the thought of Booker and JBL defending Cole or King at some point (were King to be insulted directly either in person or not).

Personally, my favourite of all WWE announcers is Albert/Tensai as he has a great voice and seems to have the intelligence a lot of them lack, but I'd be surprised if he ever got much of a chance above NXT. Graves might get fast tracked though

Good to see Lawler getting phased out, although Booker T isnt much of a replacement.

The team need to stop arguing about stupid unrelated BS and call the match. If they must argue, argue about the morality of a heel cheating or put a face over.

I hate to sound like a broken record, but even though they have about 23 different people, NXT's commentary is always solid.

In general I think the WWE should drop the 3 man team, just doesnt work. The simple formula of face play by play and heel colour works. Hell, Joey Styles proved all you need is a good face play by play to sell a story.

Does a hell of a Josh Matthews impression as well

Someone I think was criminally underrated as an announcer on the 'E books was Rene Young, her partnership with Regal (who could also do a job on the main shows) on nxt was 1st class

While I'm at it, If Lesnar is leaving after 'mania, WWE could do a lot worse than putting Heyman back behind the announce desk, his partnership with JR is hands down my favorite duo of all time.

Heyman would be grand, I just think they'd miss his showmanship for promos.

Renee Young is alright, find her slightly annoying on commentary though. I actually prefer Riley

My problem with Renee is she can be a bit over enthusiastic and hyperbolic when its really not needed.

Jason Alberts a good shout, glad he got to stick around after they Poopie the bed with his in ring return.

Corey Graves has a long career behind the desk ahead of him. After having his in ring career cut criminally short by repeated concussions, he did really well at his first go. Despite it being R Evolution and being thrown in the deep end. He did a great job selling the story and putting guys over, especially Owens, Balor and Zayn.

Alberts is definitely my favourite. Vast experience but still a WWE man, clearly understands where he was likely let down and would be keen to make sure he helped others, and his voice suits the role. Plus he could definitely be either face or heel.

I can't stand Renee in the commentary booth. Don't think she adds anything, and she struggles to get her point across. It's a shame as she's an excellent interviewer.

Apparently they have been trying to move Lawler for a while but because of the heart attack it would of been harsh. But with Smackdown having a new start it seemed like a good chance.

Really wish Jim Ross was still around.

I'm delighted Lawler is off RAW, about 7 years too late but better now than never

But replacing him with Booker though?! It's like when football teams have a caretaker manager who loses all his matches but gets the job permanently anyway.

True, I'd love to say I actually care anymore but I don't really, the way I see it I'm probably in the "anyone but Lawler" camp

I'd agree long term Booker isn't the right guy but its a step the right direction, everything always has to be in stages with Vince

Indeed, and there's no doubting that Booker is a) better and b) unintentionally hilarious. Win win

I love Booker. Can't wait for the return of his fave five, which doubles up as whichever face happens to be in the match.
