I really like Joey Styles and that's one thing I'm looking forward to when I start watching Raw around 2005 or whenever it was he became part of the announcing team along with Coach and face Lawler. Just something about his voice and the way he sells exciting moments that I like listening to.

And KingofKings, I can't believe Fully Loaded 2000 only got the #48 spot. That match is at least top 20 and rated around ****1/2 or ****3/4 for me.

Gordon Solie & Jesse Ventura are probably the best colour commentators of all time. "and he hits a beautiful looking SUPLAY" Awesome. Ventura is just fucking great, explains every little detail in the match and adds so much insight. JBL and J.R. are probably the most entertaining. Striker's pretty hit and miss for me. Sometimes he's really on point and others he's just stupid and annoying.

Let me just say the Matt Strikers commentary during HBK-Taker WM 26 absolutely ruins the match. Even though he's probably feed his lines, he sounds like a retard and says the dumbest shit. Awful.

Well, I guess we can all agree on one thing? The worst commentator of all time had to be Lord Alfred Hayes.

Yes, exactly. He explains things like what the move being applied feels like, what happened the last time wrestler x was in a similar situation. And when you're talking about CAW #154667 on Superstars, it really adds to them.

I actually find Cole worse. For what's supposed to be one of the most important matches in WWE history, he sure doesn't seem to care. I really wish JR would've been there. His call the year before really showed how a commentator can help a match become from great to special.

I think McMahon deserves some praise as a commentator, I know he isn't GOAT but he should be in the same sentence and up there with the others, while he is mostly forgotten about because he is best known for his GM days and his BOSS gimmick with Austin, he has some memorable commentary moments too from the early - mid 90's in the WWF including THE BOYHOOD DREAM HAS COME TRUE FOR SHWAN MICHAELS ... I really liked McMahon on the announce table.

I found it funny that I only started to tolerate McMahon about a year prior prior to him giving up commentary altogether in 1997.

When Cole isn't being an intolerable dick he's generally fine. But for all the great quotes from great matches we can pluck out for JR, I'm struggling to think of a single one for Cole.

It's like he has a script of cliches to use. I guess Cole Bingo wasn't far wrong.
