Love the concept, boss!
I didn't know about this change in commentary… Not too pleased at all! I hope this does mean Matt's going to RAW, and isn't about to suffer the same fate as Todd Grisham…
Yeah I agree, great premise for a segment!
When I first heard the rumours about Booker going to Smackdown, I kind of assumed that Striker would remain with Josh Matthews… and Cole would just stick to RAW. That's quite a surprise, because this means we're stuck with losing a guy who IS excellent on commentary in Striker. If he does move to RAW, like you, I can deal with that. It seems kind of pointless to not just remove Cole from the Blue Brand.
Rich beat me to it! The concept is great, and I certainly look forward to more of these.
I'll say it. Matt Striker adds to the match, while Booker will detract from it. Sure, both "Black Snow" and his usual persona may be funny to some people, but Booker as a commentator will do nothing but distract from the action and put himself over at the expense of the match. I adore Matt Striker, and find him the best announcer going. What the E's problem with him is, I have no idea.
