Re: Analyze This: Commentator's contributions to a great show/match
Commentary at this point is at an all-time low. I don't care how much Michael Cole has 'improved', he is still one of the worst commentators I've ever heard.
Part of the problem is that all the classic commentators like Jim Ross, Monsoon, Schiavone, Heenan, Lawler etc. all came from a wrestling background. They were either past wrestlers themselves or commentated in different territories. Nowadays commentators are just broadcasters who are there to market the 'product' (fucking hate that word) and going off on tangents as regards to other aspects of the show, rather than calling moves, pushing every star on the roster and educating viewers.
If you type "Adolf Hitler was a fucking cunt" into Google using the speechmarks, you get two results over the entire internet. If you type in "Jeremy Kyle is a fucking cunt", you get 612. I can't do the maths, but that sounds about right.
