Re: So... is the new three man commentary team the way to go?
Sorry, late addition to this thread as I only saw the PPV last night.
Yeah, when I heard about the three way commentary I thought it had the potential to sound really messy. But actually it was noticeable how much better it was. The new guy is an excellent play-by-play man and Tenay and Taz worked a lot better just chipping in with additional stuff than they do when it is just the two of them.
While ultimately (in a few years time) I'd like to see the team of the new guy (sorry, can't remember his name) and a good colour commentator like Daniels or Bully Ray, for the short to medium term, this new three man set up worked beautifully IMO. Tenay in particular was much better when all he was doing was recounting wrestler's past achievements, and Taz was nowhere near as irrelevant as he usually is as he didn't seem to feel the need to fill air-time with nonsense.
Hope this becomes a regular team.
