For me the top best of all time announcer is Gordon Solie, some of you may never had seen him in action but you should look up some of his videos if you haven't already.

After him it's Gorilla Monsoon with Boby The Brain or Gorilla with Jesse The Body. They played off each other great. I liked Jim Ross too. I also like Joey Styles on ECW always saying OH MY GOD!! That's classic. It doens't seem like current announcers from any promotion are as good sadly, but that's just my opinion.

All of them are announcing legends imo.

Joey Styles, Bobby Heenan and Paul Heyman. All fantastic. Everyone else pretty much sucks in comparison to those three.

J.R., Lance Russell and Gordon Solie are probably the best in a traditional sense.

But I personally give the edge to Joey Styles. He made ECW.

Yeah, Lance Russell, Joey Styles, Excalibur, the '90s AJPW guy whose name escapes me right now ("BACK DUROP DRIIIIVAAAAAAAAAH!!!), Arturo Rivera (? - 1990s AAA: "Los rudos, los rudos, los ruuuuuuuuuuuuudos!").

Gordon Solie was great. I didn't see a lot of matches, which he commented, but that line ''Yes, sir, we promise you a great main event here today...''
