I'll go further than that.  This is what's missing.  The announcers can't get guys over anymore.  For some reason I'll listen if it's Jesse Ventura talking about Shamus.  If it's Michael Cole I don't give a damn

The thing that really jumped out at me was what a phenomenal job Ventura did of getting over Sheamus, who I'm sure he had never heard of 2 hours before he went on the air, as compared to every other announcer.  He wasn't listening to Kevin Dunn in his air and he didn't say "WWE Universe" every other sentence for no particular reason, he just paid attention to what was going on in the ring.

Jesse's pro-heel color commentary in the 80s put over all of Hogan's monster heel challengers to the point where he can be considered a big (if unsung)  part of Hulkamania

How bloody refreshing was that?!? I love Cornette's story about making Kevin Dunn cry. The only thing about Raw that disappointed me was that Vince wasn't more into the announcing thing, he sounded rather lackluster.
