    Matt Striker SUCKS!

    I'm watching Smackdown for the first time in months. God does Matt Stryker ever suck.

    I hate when commentators try and put themselves over. His style is the worst I've ever heard. Far worse than Taz. Compared to the days of Jesse Ventura with Gorilla Monsoon or Vince and Macho Man its godawful.

    Just an observation.

    You're right. I'm not a fan of Stryker or his unibrow.

    But Matt Striker is by far the best commentator WWE has had since JBL.

    I'm posting on WC for the first time in months. God does Tony Clifton ever suck.

    I hate when new posters try and put themselves over. His style is the worst I've ever seen. Far worse than Bobby Hill. Compared to the days of Tyler Durden with Blitzkrieg or Danny and PS it's godawful.

    Just an observation.

    Matt Striker is a beast. And he carries the awkward Todd Grisham.

    Re: Matt Stryker SUCKS!

    I just dont get how you can not like Striker on commentary. Its like saying Christian cant carry a match, John Cena isnt very strong and HHH has been the most giving and considerate veteren of all time. You just cant justify it...

    Re: Matt Stryker SUCKS!

    I am not a fan of how he has to constantly use all these big words just to try and sound smart, because he used to be a teacher. If he wasn't trying to sound smart all the time, he would actually be a good commentator. JR hit the nail on the head a couple of weeks ago when he said that, "Striker’s on an adjective rush. Intervention pls.”
    SWEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!

    Re: Matt Stryker SUCKS!

    He annoys me. A month or so ago I thought he was onto something but he's taken the character to a far extreme that's just... irritating. Heel commentary people should be annoying to the point where you want them to get told off - not muted. I personally think the Grish does a fine job and Josh Mathews or whatever his name is isn't bad either, but Striker makes me wish I could keep the in-ring audio and just play music over it instead.

    Perhaps it might be that they're not really calling the moves as much anymore and just "telling a story" and he's an obnoxious narrator that makes each and every story that comes through his filter one that's tainted. His emphasis on certain things is just.. too pronounced. He really does need to tone it down.

    Big words? Please explain.

    I happen to like his subtle humor. He throws jokes into his commentary that I'll bet 95% of the audience doesn't even get. Oh, and those jokes may or may not have anything to do with "big words", just a little wrestling history. While doing that, he manages to present the product to the audience in a structured, coherent manner.

    Matt Striker is the best commentator in the business right now, imo.

    Agreed.

    Like on SD with Kane and Gallows, hilarious.

    This is perhaps the biggest reason I think Striker's great. He particularly enjoys talking Ziggler up like he's King Shit, and it's absolutely fantastic.

    - He does a great job putting over the importance of matches and other events.
    These two points in particular, imo, are what makes him really stand out. Beyond just mentioning their nicknames and backgrounds, he actually talks about the wrestling maneuvers and their effects. Hell, I've even seen him, on several occasions, explain away obvious botches and make it BELIEVABLE that the wrestler who botches planned it that way from the beginning.

    Oh, he also managed to bring back the IWC coveted "heel commentator" back into fashion in the WWE.

    What's the OP's gripe about Striker again?

    Agree with Tommy. Striker does a great job of putting over the talent without continually resorted to exaggeration and hyperbole.

    Re: Matt Stryker SUCKS!

    Striker has his positives and his negatives. He does tend to illiterate and be heavy on the adjectives, which is a part of a bit of over characterization. But at the same time I can appreciate that he is trying to be a character which is a real throwback.

    He does try to put over everyone which is fantastic because most never get the rub from anyone else, but that can be a tad overbearing due to a lack of credibility. This is everyone elses fault because they are trying to put over a Pay Per View match for the 8 zillionth time or put over a main eventer even though they spend 20 minutes per main eventer it seems in terms of putting them over.

    As for the old school references, sorry to those who dislike it, I can't find a fault in the world with it. If anything it should make a hardcore new age fan want to seek this information out in terms of understanding the jokes. Not to mention Striker's comedic delivery is absolutely subtle brilliance. He has the ability to tell you a joke you aren't necessarily sure of, make you laugh at it with his subtlely dry delivery and then go back and think what the hell did I just laugh at?
