    Default WWE Concerned About Michael Cole's Commentary

    Follow us on Social Media







    Good news for all WWE fans who hates Michael Cole.
    These are the two reports from WWE backstage:

    Quote:
    WWE officials held a meeting last week after the RAW ratings came in, during which Michael Cole's commentary was discussed.

    TV rating's patterns show fans have little interest in seeing anyone on TV besides the top Superstars. It was considered that a reason why might be Cole's continual burial of talent on Raw and Smackdown for the past year or so.

    And here's the second:

    Quote:
    As noted earlier, there has been internal discussion about how Michael Cole has buried talents over the past year and how that burying hasn't helped them any. Zack Ryder and Daniel Bryan were specifically brought up as far as Cole burying them goes. It was pointed out that Cole has put them down in commentary forever and both haven't been booked as main event talents up until recently and it showed when they had to rely on Bryan, Ryder and CM Punk to carry the RAW main event, which flopped, a few weeks back.

    Though just a report, it seems WWE may have taken notice of how most people seem to feel about Cole's commentary, and that it's possibly showing up in the ratings. The fact that he bashes basically all faces other than the likes of Cena and Orton may have driven the idea into some viewers' heads that they're all that's worth paying attention to. They probably thought Cole opposing these guys would rally the fans behind them considering the heat he gets, but since no other announcer does a particularly good job at backing them up, it's all just hate that the viewers get. Thing is, I don't think Cole is necessarily a bad announcer, just that he's overdoing this role of his right now. Heel Cole is hard to bear, while regular play-by-play Cole is just fine. Hopefully these reports are true and something
    is done about it soon.

    What do you think?

    Is Cole a problem?

    Do you think a change may be coming, and when?

    How do you expect WWE, storyline-wise, to go about removing Cole and/or his heel persona?

    I'm not sure, but if there will be change. It might be at WM or even earlier than that.

    Maybe the King or D.Byran shutting him up once and for all.




    Frankly, I got to say that I'm impressed as to how long Heel Cole lasted. Not even heel JR lasted this long, then again it was really short lived.

    Is Cole a problem?
    yes he takes away from the matches a good Commentmator adds stuff to the matches not takes the viewers attention off of it

    Do you think a change may be coming, and when?
    I would hope as soon as possable


    How do you expect WWE, storyline-wise, to go about removing Cole and/or his heel persona?

    I would think it would be great to make him a manager for some up and coming heel that way he can be as loud and annoying as he likes but we the viewers wouldn't have to see all the time

    I think that the WWE is trying to establish Cole as the heel commentator to replace Lawler. He has been the heel commentator for most of his commentary career. King would bash all of the faces as well, but he knew how to do it and keep it funny. King was more or less a biased heel comedian commentator and was golden at it. He is in the Hall of Fame. He's 61 years old now and it's time to work on replacing him. The problem with Cole is that he isn't funny. He is annoying and just comes across as hateful. He has been the face commentator for all, if not most of his commentary career. He used to be the wimpy nerd that got picked on by people like The Rock and now just comes across as a spiteful, hateful, resentful, bitter person. He calls Bryan a nerd all the time ironically. Simply put Cole is no Lawler and obviously can't pull of the heel role. People legitimately can't stand him because he is annoying.
    As for how to fix this. I'd say have someone "injure" Cole. Maybe Mark Henry or some other heel. This would give Cole reason to stop advocating heels when he returns. Then have Jerry cut a promo one day expressing how sick he is of having to play the nice guy and bite his tongue all the time. He can blame the PG era or he can blame the company. This would allow heel Jerry to return while they put someone else as the face commentator. Who that person should be, i don not know yet. Whoever it is would only need to be there while Cole is "injured". My vote would be for JR. Classic heel Lawler and "good ol' JR" sounds nice to me. Cole could come back and apologize for his actions and words and humble himself before the fans. Then once it's time to replace Jerry, they will need a former wrestler to do it. There has almost always been a wrestler/former wrestler on commentary because the knowledge they posses is needed. Now who would I recommend? Goldust. He is dynamic and a very talented talker that can play many roles. The WWE isn't doing anything else with him anyways. I wouldn't have him in Goldust character though. Just Dustin Rhodes. This would also allow a decent title run for Cody. Remember when WWE brought in the light heavyweight division? Brian Christopher would always get help from his dad(Lawler for those who don't know) which brought a lot of heat that helped his character a lot. Similarly Dustin would be able to interfere in Cody's matches. This would make his wins believable for people like myself that don't think Cody can pull it off cleanly. Maybe even have his dad as a manager to distract the ref. This would give us a solid heel commentator who is a great talker and can draw legitimate heat thus allowing Cole to become the face that he needs to be. Cole can be disapproving of Dustin's actions. Also if fans are having a hard time accepting Cole back as a face, they can simply have him intervene, when Dustin interferes, allowing Cole to help the face win the title thereby legitimizing him as a face. This could also lead to the Rhodes' harassing Cole and draw sympathy towards the guy.
    I know it might seem a little far out to some of you guys, but tell me what you think.

    sshinde555 it would be a good idea but i think that might be a bit too complicated for the creative team to work out sadly

    Cole is a horrible play by play caller and he does tremendous damage to the mid carders and the TV show in general.

    Instead of getting people over he buries them.

    Bring back Joey Styles and JR.

    Lawler hasn't followed the product for years and he comes across as uninterested.

    Move back into the tried and tested formula of a face on play by play and a heel on color.

    Regal is the perfect guy to groom as the next big color commentator.

    I hope that they'll stay the course

    Cole is the greatest commentator the WWE has ever had and probably the best ever wrestling commentator.

    They are just using Cole in the wrong way is all, he really is brilliant at his job and makes a ton of the matches more exciting than they actually are.

    Cole is actually a very good commentator! dont get me wrong i cant stand him at the moment, but you have to remember that the commentry is scripted! he is only doing what he is told by creative.

    There is a change planned and it has started already. you may have noticed that Cole has not been quite as bad as normal the last couple of weeks. however the news in our office is that the plan is still to remove Cole from Raw until the next Draft! He will be humbled on smackdown and then return to raw as a FACE. The replacement for Cole on Raw is likely to be JR, giving King a chance to become a HEEL again.

    As i say that is the news in our office but be are kept out of most storylines until just before they happen.
