Cole tonight was the best he has been for years, possibly ever. He was legit entertaining when it was suitable and put over both faces and heels in a way that will garner the desired reaction. All you can ask from a commentator.
Every male wrestler guest commentator on Smackdown or RAW blows the doors off Lawler. Henry, Punk, Barrett, Kane, you name it.
The guy is SO DONE. I would have made him get his win at WM 27, his moment, his triumphant beer bash with Austin and then I would have respectfully "retired" him. How can this company not see what a handicap he is to the product? He's been awful for years. Take the nag out in the pasture and shoot it in the head already. I'd have had Lawler off to the glue factory almost 2 years ago.
