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

I think he sold plenty of tickets or he wouldn't have still had a job, much less a job in several territories simultaneously.  He definitely got over what needed to get for that time period and those markets.

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
