Recovering with no brain damage. Good to hear.

They need JR/King as commentary again. Cole/King sucks

"You know Brain, CM Punk recently in a promo ask, 'who the hell did Jerry Lawler ever defeat?'"

"Now Lawler can say 'DEATH, biatch!' and shut him up."

Regal/Cole

Cole needs to be the face announcer that calls the match. Regal needs to be heel former wrestler announcer who acts smarmy.

That would work great. Cole as a heel is just awful.

Did anybody else catch themselves last Monday thinking, "Hey, this show with no commentary works"?

It would be nice if Vince would get out of their ears and allow them to work.

Other possible teams:

Josh/Cole
Striker/Standford (I have been pulling for this one for a while)
Josh/JBL (Rumors of JBL returning)
Cole/JBL
Stiker/Cole
Regal/Cole
Regal/Josh
Cole/Edge (Dreaming)

I am sure I am missing some.

How 'sporting' of him.

Way to go, King. I'd say you've earned all of these.

I'd think it would be kind of funny if the only brain damage he had was the inability to use inneundos, so that instead of yelling PUPPIES! he would actually yell TITS! BOOBIES! BREASTS!

Even though that's what he means when he says that, they'd still probably have to keep him off of the air.

Yes. At the same time I hate what led to that and would not have minded bad commentary if that meant the heart attack would not happen.

Agreed. I was waiting patiently for updates on Lawler, yet at the same time thinking "Hey...I like this. No commentary rocks!". As long as someone is on top of the 7-second delay button, it would work.

Cythraul: Recovering with no brain damage. Good to hear.


It's weird that they didn't know/reveal this news sooner. I have it on very good authority that they only took one CT head scan and it was on the same day he was admitted to the hospital. I was already aware that there was no brain damage by Tuesday morning, yet they didn't release that information until much, much later. I wonder if it was just because they wanted his heart and breathing to stabilize completely before telling the family.

Whoever the authority who told you that is a dickhead, and if he was looking in records not related to their department I hope will get busted for that bullshiat.

Also, CT scans can look normal and it would not mean that brain damage had not occured, and MRI would be better to look at the soft tissue. Brain damage would be verified with not just the imaging but also with basic neurologic testing, and asking him questions over time to determine if any memory loss of cognitive loss had occured.

Cole/Miz was, and I hate to sound clichéd, AWESOME! I'm not a Miz fan by any stretch of the imagination, but he OWNED on commentary, especially during the hug it out segment.

Also, I think that #shutupcole can now be retired. Talk about grace under pressure! How many people do you know could still go on like nothing has happened when the man sitting next to you gets into an unexpected match with the Grim Reaper?

Also, the first thing I thought of when I first saw the news was the following exchange:

The Body: ITS A HEART ATTACK!!!
Mean Gene: Massive cardiac.

I used to agree that Cole was terrible and his schtick was horrible and worn out. But, I think there was a bit of a change around the end of the Laryngitis run, and he's not quite as bad; for me at least.

Also in Cole's favor with me: he can kayfabe an unrepentant, childish douche night in and night out, yet when shiat gets real, he's so torn up with concern over Lawler that he can't speak or continue. For me, that says a lot about Cole's skills and about him as a person.

Also, sign me up for the Cole/Edge announcing team. It's not like Edge's movie career is going to go anywhere.

EyeballKid: Did anybody else catch themselves last Monday thinking, "Hey, this show with no commentary works"?


I dunno, I kinda liked it when the whole situation was just going down and Cole stopped playing a character and started calling a god damned wrestling match.

I mean, listen to him. It was vanilla and it didn't throw the angle/storyline in our face, but it was still good and it got across the "weirdness" (Kane/Bryan interaction) at the end. It was just enough and it proved that the kid can actually do it every once in a while.

The reason: Vince McMahon yelling at your earpiece to sell everything but the match itself. Exhibit A: JR's first run on commentary. Exhibit B: Joey Styles' run on RAW.

When Vince isn't on the headset ruining things, Cole isn't half bad.

True. I miss JR. But as long as Vince is feeding the announcers lines, I blame Vince.

So what are the current odds of Vince faking a heart attack backstage to mock the situation right before a "BE A STAR" commercial break.

Also, the one thing that could change from this is they have an excuse to finally unheel Cole. People felt so bad for him last week that if he just went to play by play, it would definitely dial back the heel heat. We didn't think there'd ever be any chance of that.

King should return at "Survivor Series" just to show off

Vince is doing his usual JR impersonation, fakes a heart attack, jumps from the rafters, and murders his family on the way down.

Actually, a spot in a traditional Survivor Series match might be perfect. It allows him the big surprise return and allows him to "participate" without being extrenuous. He can tag in, pull off a couple of moves, maybe get a "hot tag", and even get the win without having to put on a full match.

Survivor Series seems like it would be a bit early, doesn't it?

But the Royal Rumble? They could give him 5 or 10 minutes in the ring near the end, make it look like he has a chance at winning.

I have Smackdown on and Vince needs to raise the salary of the guy who just edited this Cena-Punk video. Watching it without fearing for Lawler's life, holy crap, Cena sold that story and was by far his best promo in a long time (minus the crowd baiting with YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME). The way they cut the video spot on tells the story they wanted

Maybe they could bring in Neidhart's daughter and do something with Nat/King/Cole.
