JR Blog: Announcing in Wrestling, Kofi Kingston Steps Up and More

has a new blog on Here are some of the highlights:

– WWE’s TV people hit home runs with their new music, graphics packages, and the overall “look” of the show on HD.

– I like the short, smaller set as WWE used the short, live event entrance for the show instead of the long ramp entrance which kills a bunch of seats. Over 20,000 fans were in the Garden Monday night of which we heard on multiple occasions. We may have heard it with such regularity that I thought we might might be the audio daily double at the end of the night. Seriously, that was a huge crowd and an accomplishment for any event. I don’t know but I assume that that short entrance way was for MSG or other similar arenas and that the traditional entrance will be used next week but that’s an assumption.

– I think we are approaching a non productive trend in the business as it relates to the announcing. We are all guilty, me too, of doing too much hyperbole, talking about too many things that are not related to a bout. In other words sell, sell, sell. “The most historic, most anticipated, most watched, most longest running, most amazing main event, most..most ..most.” This isn’t a knock on my fellow announcers as I have been just as guilty, if not more, but after being home for several weeks and hearing a bunch of wrestling on TV it begins to become noticeable and not in a good way.

can look back on this night in MSG as perhaps the night he stepped up and touched the next level. I thought Kofi and ’s physical interaction was the wrestling highlight of the show. That was some big time stuff from two young, talented competitors.
