Default The Art of Commentating....

As wrestling grew throughout the decades.....A greater emphasis was put on commentating....From Lord Alfred Hayes to Jesse "The Body" to "Gorilla" Mosoon.....

There have been many different combinations throughout time....From the Face/Heel combination (Monsoon/Heenan).....The Face/Analysis/Joker combination (McMahon/Ross/Lawler)......To the Face/Face combination (Ross/Lawler) (Tazz/Cole)......

Each combination had its own merits and faults....From strictly hyping the up-coming matches/storylines (JR/King) to calling the match and hyping the individuals (Jesse/Gorilla)....

My question is.....Which do you prefer....Not the commentators themselves....But the style in which commentating is presented....

The heel/face thing especially when Mark Madden and Mike Tenay did it in WCW !

I liked the Face/Heel combination era

and I hope some day the WWE would do it again by doing this:

RAW : (JR*Face* / King*Heel*)

Smack Down : (Cole*Face* /Tazz*Heel* )

P.S. doring 2001 the whole WCW/ECW vs. WWF ( JR / Hayman ) era was soooooo GREAT to see the last days of: The Face/Heel combination

I too like the heel and face combination. My favourite will have to be Paul Heyman and JR, especially when the Alliance was around.
