"Just do whatever the gently caress you feel like" is a good approach, the Ethan stuff was good.

The commentary is taken me completely out of it. Like, REACT more. Be shocked, be disgusted etc. Sounds like they are just calling a normal match.

I'm in the same boat. He usually goes out of his way to make these matches pretty entertaining without being too gruesome.

All of them.

I don't like Striker calling Kenny the best pound for pound. I feel like Striker could be like "Well Kenny wants to wrestle Swan, Kenny wants to wrestle the best in the world, so these 2 are on an even level"

EDIT: How did they miss Sabins dive on Anderson????

2nd Edit: Of course as soon as I post that Striker brings that up (about Swan and Kenny being on the same level)

It's definitely the opposite of this!

This match really whips. It's good enough that it's changing my mind on Moose (as a wrestler)

He does the exact opposite of what he needs to. Undersells big moments and moves and oversells smaller moments.
