Alwats liked Russell more but would rank Solie at #2.  Don't care much about his drinking, it didn't seem to affect him much on the air from what I've heard of him.  Obviously he stayed around too long, him as a C team announcer on some of those WCW syyndicated shows were painful to listen to.  The absolute worst was when Schiavone was on vacation or something and he filled in on WCWSN to call matches with Heenan.  They had no idea how to interact with each other and it was the most brutal thing I ever heard outside of Art Donovan and Mike Adamle.  But in his prime, he was excellent and I'm not sure why he gets so much shit.  Russell got angles over better IMO, but Solie got moves over better than anyone.
