I'm not talking about him spoiling the handicap match (if he did anyway), but moreso his announcing in general. He is quite possibly the worst face announcer I have ever heard. Just from last night's RAW, when he was arguing with Cole about how Cody won the tables match unfairly, Cole says 'the object is to put your opponent through the table, which Rhodes did' and Lawler replies 'no he did not'. He just has a really annoying double standard where if a heel does something controversial we never hear the end of it but if a face does the exact same thing, it's perfectly ok. I know there's a script or whatever and he is a face announcer but he is so stupidly annoying, I don't even have a problem with Cole since Lawler spoils the commentary before Cole can.

He didn't really spoil the tag match, the way he said it was like Punk was facing Tensai and the other Japanese dude. But oh well.

I like him, i like that he's been in the busness for years. It adds something to the show.

His commentary annoys me to hell. Show sends Cody through the table after Extreme Rules and there is nothing wrong, if the heel did that he would be kicking off.
H also said he enjoyed it how CM Punk told Johnny how it is. Yet he despised Punk in the Summer of Punk and during the shoot for saying how it is.
I know it's scripted but IT'S STILL REAL TO ME DAMMIT!!!

He need to turn Heel. Heel King was the best thing WWE had since the Wendi Richter screwjob.

That right there is the main reason i hate him. Like when Team Johnny vs Team Teddy was going on Laurinaitis and his team came out wearing shirts with Johnny's face on them, King said "look at those shirts, Team Teddy doesn't need any ridiculous shirts like that". Then Teddy came out seconds later wearing the same exact shirt except with his face on them, and King said "well those shirts looks alot better than Laurinaitis's".

He was annoying before, but it didn't really bother me much, but he's become a lot more unbearable lately.

I stopped listening to him 5 years ago. The fact that he went from awesome heel announcer to unbearable face ass kisser. He can't even call the people's elbow good like he used to.
