I am beyond disappointed in the outcome of the "Michael Cole Challenge" from the November 14 episode of Monday Night Raw. I figured the whole thing would be gimmicked and a way to make JR look bad, and unfortunately I was right. I know no one from the WWE will actually see this post, but I'm going to vent and share my thoughts and feelings anyway. I hope you'll read all of it and post your thoughts as well.

I believe that the current state of announcers can be attributed to a drop in ratings. I have no proof of this, but who wants to hear the crap spewing from Michael Cole every week. And yes, I get it, he's playing a character, I just can't understand why the WWE would want to create such an annoying figure and run the risk of people not listening to the show or worse, changing the channel.
So here are a few hypothetical questions I have for the WWE creative teams.
If Triple H is the COO of the WWE, shouldn't he have more clout than the Raw General Manager?
The fans clearly love JR, so why wouldn't Teddy Long then hire Ross and replace Cole with him on Friday Night SmackDown!?
|I'm just weighing in, Cole's character sucks!|
Maybe there's something bigger here. Maybe JR doesn't want to come back to full time commentary. I just don't like the way they're keeping him off TV. There's no need for the constant fat jokes. For a company that vows to put an end to bullying, there are a lot of characters on that show who seem to be bullies to me.
