The announcer doesn't have to be over the top, but his job is to sell tickets.

He made a few hicks less embarrassed to mention to people they know that they like rasslin' because he made it sound so serious, so I'm sure that sold a few extra tickets

he tries to come across as an humble "everyman" who has a great relationship with the fans while being one of the biggest navel-gazing, narcissistic, self-aggrandizing marks for himself in wrestling, which is saying something.
