    Slightly confused by the picture… seeing as it gives us the 5.

    LOL why so many people?, wwe doesn’t learn wtf, now is more like a talk show at ringside while there a match going on, two people in commentary is enough

  • CC

    It’s only 4, but still overkill

  • Soulshroude

    a 5 person commentary is over-kill. They should have saved it for Wrestlemania.

    I do miss JBL on Smackdown he was awesome. Jerry Lawler let’s face it he got a new deal so he wouldn’t go to AEW but he will only show up once in a while. Beth Phoenix probably will be doing color on Smackdown some day.

    Four person commentary teams, just what we always wanted. Three was nowhere near enough people.
    I hope by the end of the year we have six people commentating on all matches, enjoying jokes between themselves and ignoring what is going on in the ring.
