Report: Backstage Heat Between Announcers on Raw & SD!

Nick Paglino

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that there is legitimate heat between Raw announcers Michael Cole/Jerry Lawler and Smackdown announcer Matt Striker. This might explain why tension can be sensed when the three of them do broadcasts together.

According to the report, Striker often times comes off as an elitist, and Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler are apparently not too fond of him. Both Raw announcers feel he is not worthy of the platform that he puts himself on, and one source was quoted as saying "he has a long way to go to come off as good as he thinks he is."
