Any of the variations as long as Graves was one of them were all great. The main announcer is the same and is good, but the color guys are boring as shit.

The old team could take average wrestling shows and make them entertaining with their commentary. Like watching a boring baseball game with a good announce team full of anecdotes. i've mostly stopped watching nxt for this reason alone.

It hasn't been the same at all without Corey.

Most others hit it on the head - Percy is not a good commentator. Perhaps entertaining, verbally, in the ring. Not so on commentary. That said, it is still developmental and he should be given time.

I like Nigel; I like Tom. I loved Tom & Coreys' chemistry, but understand Corey should move up the ladder. I wouldn't mind a 3rd rotational commentator to Tom and Nigel. Just get rid of Percy.

Serious question- why do WWE always insist on having a black commentator? Just seems like an odd way to fill a "diversity quota" when you'd think people of different races would rather have wrestlers pushed. I mean, I can't speak for people outside my race, obviously, but would a black person really be offended if someone of their race wasn't calling the action? Are black people happier with the announce team because they're represented in it?

And if they're going to do it, can't they get someone good? I don't watch Impact often, but The Pope seems decent on commentary. And this is purely based on their promo skills, but I feel like Mark Henry and R-Truth would be decent on the headset.

I liked having Renee on the commentary team. It's nice hearing a female voice instead of the non stop train of male commentators. I wish they'd hire a female commentator for RAW or SmackDown Live.

I really like Nigel, but Percy just brings the whole commentary team down.

Nigel and JR did wonders during the Bate/Dunne match
