Watching the first episode of Raw and this fucker makes the current lot of commentators sound like Jim Ross, he is that fucking awful mind.
Worst commentator ever.

No shit. Thank God he wasn't around for very long.
he was way over his head. I think the WWE just assumed that any personality could instantly become an entertaining wrestling announcer.
His 5 minutes trying to impersonate Mike Tyson made me want to kill myself. What an unfunny cretin the bloke was, he was clearly trying his hardest to make Vince and Savage laugh in that 'give me acceptance' sort of way.

Vince thought he would be funny. That goes to show you how awful his sense of humour really is.

I did get the feeling Savage wanted to smack Bartlett round the head on more than one occasion.

I have never, in the history of all pro wrestling, hated anyone more than Rob Bartlett. He was brought it to be Heenan's replacement. There are 5 things you NEVER do: tug on Superman's cape, spit into the wind, pull the mask off the lone Lone Ranger, put baby in a corner, and replace Bobby Heenan.

My god he was awful. It was like your asshole older brother that rubs it in that wrestling is fake and calls you a nerd for watching it, getting to do commentary.

In the 3 episodes I watched there did seem to be a canny few awkward silences after he told a 'joke'. I wouldn't blamed Macho for wanting to hit him at all.

As you say, you can NEVER replace Bobby Heenan. And I thought there was a sixth thing you never do...

He makes Michael Cole look competent.

There's only so much I've been able to take every so often, since I posted this thread I'm only up to Episode 6 of Monday Night Raw... and now he's doing Arnold Schwarzenegger impressions :cry:.

When will it end man!?

They get rid of him a week or 2 after mania iirc

The way they write him out is quite humorous

The only good thing to ever come of him were the segments where Heenan tries to gain entry into Raw.

It's always good to see The Brain, but I kept getting the impression that Bartlett was keeping him out of the company, and it made me sick.

It was worth a try but it was a massively unsuccessful experiment, so glad he got binned off.
I'm eagerly awaiting the episode where he goes, but it's a shame that I'll have to hear more of him before it happens. It's basically Catch-22!

that commentator who claimed he was fired cause he wouldn't have sex with pat patterson, wasn't he really bad as well?
