• WWE Hall Of Famer Is Not Happy With Today’s Wrestling Commentary
During a recent episode of his weekly ’83 Weeks’ podcast, former WCW President Eric Bischoff talked about today’s professional wrestling commentary being overproduced.
Most fans, especially the Old School 80s & 90s fans out there, will actually agree with Eric about the current era’s commentary teams being (mostly) horrible as they get way too many instructions and nothing happens organically anymore.
Back in the day, no one scripted any comments for the legendary commentary teams, such as Bobby Heenan & Gorilla Monsoon or Jerry Lawler & Jim Ross.
Here’s what the 2021 WWE Hall of Famer had to say:
“One of the aspects of wrestling that is the most overproduced is the announcers. They don’t know how to make it feel real anymore. They’re too busy being good at what they do and too good at being real. I don’t mean that as a criticism, it’s the nature of the evolution of the business.
It’s not because they don’t have the talent or the ability, in the case of Jim Ross, he’s left more talent on the side of the road than I’ll ever have as a play-by-play announcer. But when you’re overproduced because you know too much and are trying to do too much based on all the information you have, you’re not bringing that genuine feel, that energy that is so contagious to the viewer.”
