I'm not arguing that he wasn't once one of the greatest heel commentators. Years ago. He's older, and it shows (especially when he has a heart attack on live TV). He's not as quick as he once was, and just because he had "it" back in the day doesn't mean he still has "it." Part of Lawler's job as a commentator (heel or face) is to stay sharp and quick when it comes to commentary. As of right now, he hasn't done that in a long while. (I'm not saying Cole is a great commentator, either.)
If it's any consolation, I agree with you about Orton? But he's also much, much younger than Lawler and I don't think anyone would say he's past his prime, outside of haters.
