Does Michael Cole ruin every debut/return???

I've wanted to post this before but just haven't had the time. Michael Cole literally ruins every debut or return when the wrestler makes their return to the wrestling world.

AJ Styles...I was in shock when he came out but when you go back to watch the debut, Cole is cringeworthy.

Finn Balor Summerslam 2018- OHHHHHHHHHH MYYYYYYYYYYYYY.....THE DEMON COMETH. Like stop trying so hard.

Sasha Banks return on RAW last night- Ruined again.


I know they have been grooming Graves to replace Cole. I just hope it happens ASAP because Cole literally ruins every big return.

I sometimes wonder how much of it is Cole and how much of it is Vince thinking that hammering the point home with zero subtlety is the best way to do it.

It seems like it's got to be 90%-95% Vince. Even when you go back and listen to his commentary in 1999 when JR was out and then on SD, yeah sure, he's green and not good, but it's still SO much better than what we get from him today. His commentary on SD from 2000-2005 was solid and showed improvement, etc. I'm left to conclude, because of that and basically everyone else also sucking on commentary, that it must mostly be Vince who is primarily making Cole (and most everyone else) awful on commentary.

I was with you until the part about Graves replacing Cole. I would take Cole over Graves every single time without hesitation. Graves is brutal, awkward, unfunny and comes off as a crooked knob. And by crooked knob I mean bent penis.

Yes.

His style of commentary is terrible at invoking a surprise or wow factor when it comes to these type of situations. Even worse is when he starts adding in buzz words or branding for certain wrestlers without fail taking the specialness out of the moment.

Oddly enough, it's still better than the utter bed-shitting that was Todd Grisham's "... it's Christian." that made it sound like he was just away for five minutes having a piss instead of 5 years in TNA after have becoming an NWA champion.

I don't judge commentators themselves because we know they don't have much control of what they say and how they act.

Corey Graves was at one time a great commentator. Now I can't even watch WWE because of him.

Grisham gets all the shit for that call but Matt Striker was equally dull. And we know Striker could get hyped because he lost his mind when Booker T and Kevin Nash returned at the Royal Rumble.

I thought it had already been established among the IWC that it's not so much Cole and co. but basically the way they're being force-fed all these terms and catchphrases and taglines that they need to emphasize.
