Is it just me or did JR sound pretty great?

Seriously I was of the opinion that his energy and delivery had simply passed him by with age and he had lost it, but he sounded... Well, like how I remembered. Like he cared.

He sounded great. And listening to him gave it all a legitimate overall feel. Loved it.

He did tire by the end but he was far better thsn most were fearing! Once he gets the rust off, weekly 2 hour TV will be much better with him

He was a lot better then he was the last few years. Still made a few errors but he did a good job. However that mahrez guy was pretty bad imo

Yeah he was a helluva lot better than his njpw outings. He did get a little lost but Excalibur picked up the slack.

He has always struggled when Japanese are involved. I was rewatching RAW in 97-98 and the original Kaientai and Taka matches were brutal.

Because there was finally something worth caring for.

He wasn't bad but he wasn't great (for me). I also got irritated how he wasn't looking at the camera at times when it was on the commentary team post-match.

The Alex guy needs to go though, please.

Excalibur on the other hand, ABSOLUTELY KILLED IT. GREAT JOB.

He was good tonight. He didn't sound bitter or jaded at all. Not that he doesn't have a lot to be bitter about but it was nice to see him sound like he was trying again.

He was better than I expected him to be, that's for sure. Hell at times he was downright entertaining. And his weakest moments seemed to come down to more of a lack of preparation than anything else.
