While I can certainly understand your desire to see Adamle get choked out by Tazz, I can’t agree that I would actually want to see that match take place. In my opinion, the less involved broadcasters are in a wrestling show the better.
From Matt O’Donnell
Saying that I’m totally negative would mean that you are not objective. I suppose you didn’t read when I said that the show was bookended by two great matches. Or that I think Kofi Kingston is very impressive. Or that I think the pairing of Bam Neely with Chavo is a great idea and that I look forward to seeing his character progress. Or that I was glad to see Delaney finally get a contract and await to see what kind of persona they settle on with him. Granted, I forgot to mention Benjamin attacking Kofi, but then again it appears you forgot to mention everything I did like about the show.
I think what happened was that in the beginning, WWE had no intention of pushing Adamle as a bad announcer. Over time, the audience grew very sour of him. Couple that with his ECW debut being a critical disaster, and WWE was left with no other choice than to either pull the plug on him, or attempt to make an angle out of his poor work.
From Craig Harp
Just to clarify Craig, I don’t think Adamle being a bad announcer is a hoax. I truly think he is very bad at his job. What I think is a work here is WWE making an angle out of his poor skills as opposed to pulling him from the announce booth and having him improve.
From Oney Wells
Sorry about the confusion Oney, and I will take the time to break down my system a bit more for you. The reason I use a 9 star system as opposed to a 10 star system is because I think 10 gets thrown around too much. I will occasionally use a 10, but that will only be reserved for matches I believe are match of the year worthy, or just in general really outstanding. Otherwise my high score will always be a 9.
I think this is mine and other fans’ general criticism of Adamle. He lacks passion. Therefore, I criticize WWE for putting someone on the air that doesn’t have a genuine love of the business. Even when a commentator is an intense heel, you can still feel the passion that he brings to his job. And I’m disappointed that WWE doesn’t want that from their ECW play-by-play man. It’s not fair to the fans who are passionate about the product.
