He has earned it. Commentary is one of the most important things a wrestling promotion needs. The broadcasting team is tasked with telling the fans where the story is supposed to go and guiding them in the right direction. That can make all the difference in the world and give fans some very necessary information. Finding the right lead voice is key, and now WWE is paying tribute to someone who has been around for a long time.
WWE has released a video tribute to SmackDown broadcaster Michael Cole in honor of his twenty five years with the company. The video features a variety of current broadcasters talking about what Cole means to him and how important he has been to the company. Over the years, Cole has done commentary for Monday Night Raw and SmackDown, plus pay per views, as the voice of WWE.
This is rather nice. Check out WWE’s tribute to Cole:
Opinion: I know he might not be the most popular name, but Cole is someone who has been around for so long that it is hard to imagine him not being there. Cole is so synonymous with WWE that he is the main voice that an entire generation of fans has ever heard. Hopefully he gets to stick around for a lot longer, as he really is talented at what he does.
