I didn't like it to begin with, but I'm beginning to enjoy Cole's character direction. I can see it being pretty entertaining, especially considering the fact that he's getting some pretty decent heat.
As for the Cole Miners or whatever, I don't get the reference. Maybe I've missed something.
It was funny because back on Season 1, Michael Cole hated the Internet fans, untill he slowly realized we love him on NXT. Now by Season 3, he likes the Internet fans. We're the "Silent Majority" of Cole Miners.
