Lawler hands down. The dude contributes ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to commentary. Nada, zip, zero, NOTHING. Cole botches more than Alicia Fox, but he is a Miz mark so there is some contribution. Old age has worn down on Taz and he often calls many moves the wrong move nowadays and says a lot of immature unneeded jokes during a match on Impact...But whenever somebody like AJ Styles or Desmond Wolfe or Kurt Angle does a really complicated submission hold, Taz is the reliable go to guy because he still knows his submissions quite well. Lawler does nothing. Lawler says nothing. Lawler is nothing and is a shadow of his former self.

If you take a knife, and jam it into your ears, you can almost feel what it's like to listen to Matt Striker

Tazz made it to the "tippy top" of this list for me because he seriously is the worst fucking announcer on television today. Lawler gives him a run for his money, but Tazz's over exaggerated reactions and attempts at smark humor just put him on another level of awful.

As a heel character, Michael Cole actually is pretty good. As a heel announcer, Michael Cole is horrendous. He doesn't have the smarky attitude needed to fit the role. Nor does he even have the good kind of heel heat for it to work with the fans.

Matt Striker's a guy to me who tries to sound smart and wants to look like the big shot, when in reality he sounds like a Stan. If he just shut up more often and called the matches instead of reading into them so much and throwing in random facts just for the hell of it, maybe he'd be better again.
