Re: Anyone else sick of JBL?

I like him on commentary, but he gets repetitive sometimes.

I'm sick of hearing him say Randy Orton is the youngest world champion, because Brock Lesnar says hi. I would be okay if JBL specified the World Heavyweight Championship, but since he just says world title, it gets on my nerves.

Checklist:
CM Punk holds world title for over 250 days. [X]
Zack Ryder wins another title. []
John Morrison comes back OR he reaches one million Facebook likes. [X]
Triple H vs Lesnar happens. [X]
Wade Barrett, Rey Mysterio, or Christian return. [X]
Cena takes time off. []

Randy was younger than Brock, 24 vs 25. Lou Thesz actually was a younger World Heavyweight Champion than both of them, but apparently they don't acknowledge the NWA Championship anymore (they'll probably still call Flair a 16 time World Champion though if he returns).

Re: Anyone else sick of JBL?

The best commentator in the WWE (and not even close) ?

FUCK NO. (This is coming from perhaps the biggest Booker mark on the site too)





"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

Re: Anyone else sick of JBL?

JBL is suffering from being on a show where absolutely nothing happens. He's probably repeating himself because the show is repetitive, it's the same matches with the same guys every week.

Re: Anyone else sick of JBL?

The job of the color commentator in wrestling is to put the guys over - make them interesting and compelling characters, and not just some dudes who show up to grapple. By telling us the stories - real or kayfabe - of the men who we're watching, their families, what they represent, JBL is telling us who to cheer for. Even if he can't tell us who to cheer for, because he's a heel and his alliances are not ours.

Re: Anyone else sick of JBL?

JBL has been doing a great job man. At least he doesn't either suck up to the Faces, or kiss ass to the Heels, he calls everything straight down the middle.

What the commentators need to start doing is actually calling the moves by their names, not "And CENA just drops Punk in his back..." and stuff like that.

Re: Anyone else sick of JBL?

He might be repetitive at times, but at least he shares some history and tells a story. I love how he always brings up Dolph Ziggler's Amateur background.
And just like JR had "Slobberknocker" JBL has "Knock your bicuspids"

Seriously, deal with it. He has way more personality than any other announcer anyway.

Re: Anyone else sick of JBL?

JBL is the best thing WWE have going for them commenting wise. He has put over more wrestlers in these last couple of months thank Cole and Lawler have all these years.
