"Why yes, this is a tie with dollar signs on it.

Jealous?"

I decided to put together a tournament of the worst commentators in wrestling history, and find out who was the worst of the worst.

The contestants:
Stevie Ray
Cole
Macho Man
Vince McMahon
Disco Inferno
Ed Whalen
Don West
Mike Tenay
JBL
Mark Madden
Lawler
Tony Schiavone
Jonathan Coachman
Mike Adamle
Matt Striker
Mongo McMichael

Predictions will be accepted at http://challonge.com/worstonthemic until 7/16/14 at noon, at which point actual factual voting will begin.

How could you put Stevie Ray, Schiavone and Coach on the same list as guys like Taz, JBL and Tenay? That's just mean.

Schiavone is a huge turd but he does not belong on a list like this

on the other hand http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZbNDrYRQrjQ (this is actually evidence why he doesn't belong)

It'll be a drat shame if Ed Whalen gets bumped by Lawler. He deserves a long run in the tournament.

Art Donovan should probably go on this.

Lord James Blears in the AWA of the mid 80's is pretty terrible, too.

Lord Alfred Hayes was the worst commentator I ever saw.

Sadly Diomedesforever6 just doesn't ring as well as Achillesforever6

I can take JBL because he occasional has a good line, gently caress Matt Striker and his bullshit smarky lies and dumb nicknames.

Also gently caress Mark Madden from a local level and I'm glad you lost that 66,000 bet to Mario Lemiuex you fat obnoxious gently caress.

donovan was just a guest commentator so if he's in it opens the floodgates for a lot of people who haven't been making GBS threads on broadcasts night after night for years

I got to agree that Lord Alfred Hayes needs to be on the list. I dread watching old WWF matches when the commentating team is Lord Alfred Hayes and Gorilla Monsoon. I would also add Rowdy Roddy Piper and Michael Hayes to the tournament. Speaking of Gorilla he is only listenable on commentary when accompanied by Heenan or Ventura. Either WWF Challenge or Superstars use to have the horrible team of Gorilla, Piper, and Macho Man.

Got it covered

I wasn't watching when Matt Striker was around, but the few shows I've seen with him on the Network have made me hate him. I hate him.

Would Oklahoma count? It was actually a pretty good JR impression if you could look past the, y'know, nauseating horribleness of the whole idea. "Piñata! Piñata! Piñata!"

Goodbye Cena.

Rob Bartlett needs on here, badly.

Also, it could just be more, but Gabe Sapolsky under his various different names on RoH shows is loving annoying as poo poo.

Once you go Bryan, there's no point in tryin'.


Stupid idiot Steve Corino should be on this list. Also I know I'm in the minority but there's no way in hell that Matt Striker is worse than JBL. I wasn't a huge fan of him back in the day, but he never actually drove me to change the channel, something that JBL has done more than once.

This tourney needs Sapolsky and that dude from CZW who's catch phrase was "SOMEBODY CALL 9-1-1."

You guys need to post better examples because Art Donovan was hilarious.
And honestly, any vote towards a WWE commentator, should automatically give Vince a vote as well.

As ridiculous as Striker was, I did enjoy trying to figure out what the random crap coming out of his mouth meant. Also he's responsible for my favorite commentary line ever - "TIE DOWN YOUR MOTHER, HERE COMES TRIPLE H!"
