Re: Favorite wrestlers to do commentary/announcing

Don't really care about Corey Graves, I find him annoying with his holier-than-thou demeanor more often than not.

Lawler was absolute gold in the mid-90s. I enjoyed Savage because he added energy to the commentary booth. Owen Hart was quirky but fun in the booth.

Jesse Ventura is arguably the GOAT, though.

Shawn Michaels is underrated during his brief stint with VKM in 1995

Bobby Heenan. The best colour commentator in WWF/WWE history by a wide margin. He also wrestled a little back in the 60s.

Starting in 1969, he also made occasional appearances in the American Wrestling Association. In 1974, he left the WWA. He attributed his departure from the WWA to a dispute with owner Dick the Bruiser over his pay for his participation in the first-ever wrestling event held at Market Square Arena, emphatically stating that he never returned to the promotion as a result.

Booker T because he talks like someone in my family and I've never heard that in commentary period. If he had N word privileges it would feel like I was watching with an uncle. He's so unappolgetically black and I love it.

Re: Favorite wrestlers to do commentary/announcing

For me in order:

Jesse Ventura - My earliest wrestling memories are of Jesse announcing Chico Santana, I just loved the way he did it and became a fan of him as a commentator from the minute I became a fan of wrestling.
Jerry Lawler - 90's heel King was just phenomenal.
Booker T - I don't get why he gets so much hate tbh, he's one of my favourite announcers to this day and I love him whenever he's on a preshow or anything else. He's just cool as fuck and he knows how to enjoy himself. He reminds me of one of my mate's Dad too but like an American version which is kinda cool.

Re: Favorite wrestlers to do commentary/announcing

Most have named the people I enjoyed. But I'd like to add Stevie Ray when he was commentating Nitro. For some reason he always was entertaining to me.

Re: Favorite wrestlers to do commentary/announcing

Gorilla and Bobby Heenan were the best!! I loved both of them.

I thought Taz was good when he announced and Lawler has always been a favorite of mine.

Currently, I really do enjoy Corey, although I never saw him when he was wrestling.


ETA: My hubby picked Larry Zbyszko
