Michael cole and josh matthews commentary on season 3 NXT: disrespectful or hilarious
With the talk of commentary, I can't help but think to the days of heel cole and josh matthews during NXT season 3
We all know that show was a train wreck, but I blame the bookers because they are the ones who made all that crap. The girls who were still raw at the time had to go with whatever thing vince made them do like arm wrestling, power punch, kiss contest, and dancing.Cole was merciless on them and josh matthews followed suit eventually. While they were funny at times, I thought that it was pretty disrespectful and embarrassing to those girls who most of them were not ready to be on tv yet. Not to mention it took the attention away from the girls in the ring. They were put there to be embarassed. They are supposed to be the rising stars and future, but when you bury them like that and put them in shitty situations, why would the fans take them seriously. There is a fine line between being a heel commentator and them being a dick who buries superstars and takes the attention away from them. Thoughts?
