Re: Stupid Posts Thread
Man, I still enjoy the Gorilla/Jesse and Gorilla/Heenan partnerships, but Gorilla could shit it up something fierce. Walk-In is right about him saying shit to the detriment of what was actually going on in the ring ("he's got that hold applied all wrong and he won't beat him with that," "he shouldn't be working on the patella, he should be working on the cervical vertebrae"). I mean, it doesn't really bother me, but it's there. I certainly wouldn't call him a great play-by-play guy, but he did play off Jesse and Heenan really well. Like, I don't have a hard time listening to him, and if I go back and watch something that he's announcing I won't be put off by that. I'd rather listen to Gorilla than Mooney or Hayes (Alfred, not Michael) any day. I'd rather Gorilla did commentary on half the matches Joel Watts did commentary on. He never rambled like Crazy Ralph the way Paul Boesch would. Plenty of guys were way worse than Gorilla.
But fuck all this anyway because Lance Russell is the GOAT and why is nobody talking about Lance Russell?
