Cole's heel turn has ultimately made him a worse announcer than before!

3209 42
When he first started insulting Daniel Bryan on NXT and making 'shoot comments' and references to the IWC I thought he was coming into his own. The guy does seem like he would be a better heel.

What the hell happened to that Michael Cole?

Now, months later, he's gone from improved to an over the top piece of crap. He OVERACTS and OVERSELLS EVERYTHING and it gets really annoying. And him, being a play-by-play announcer with no real face foil (King's comebacks are weak and Josh Matthews was just practically not even there). My father sat down to watch a little RAW earlier today during Miz vs Daniel Bryan and between Alex Riley and Cole, they were ruining the match with their 'man-crush' of Miz. To someone who doesn't even watch wrestling that much, they might not even be able to tell straight away that the Miz is supposed to be the heel, what with how Cole was burying Daniel Bryan.

Just everything he does is fucking annoying! I can't stand him anymore and I never thought I'd say this, but I wish we had old school Michael Cole back. There is a line between brilliant heel and over the top annoying douchebag, and he's crossed it by far.

He was good on NXT with the Danielson feud but then he just became obnoxious and burries all the faces and since hes the play by play guy its even harder to get the faces over since he sucks at that as well while hes coming all over the heels.
That's exactly what I mean. With no strong face to put over the faces it just makes the unestablished faces look lame because there's nobody to bring out their positives.

And the main event faces like Cena and Orton...Cole seems to enter alternate personality mode when they get into their big move sequences and seems to half mark out for them despite hating on them earlier. It's horrible.
