Michael Cole has been seen as the voice of WWE for many years now. He started out as backstage interviewer and eventually moved his way up the ranks and perfected his skills. Renee Paquette is also very happy for him as he takes part in WWE’s new era.
Cole truly got his break after working with the likes of Taz on Friday Night Smackdown. He has earned the respect of fans and peers alike, even though he was not always liked.
Triple H took over WWE Creative after Vince McMahon retired and there have been a lot of changes already. While speaking on her ‘The Sessions’ podcast, Renee Paquette stated that she is happy that Michael Cole is finally able to show off his talent.
“My takeaway from all of [the WWE changes] is how happy I am for how many awesomely talented people that maybe did not get to be quite as talented as they could be due to restrictions and limitations. Now, we’re gonna get really great glimpses into how awesome some people can really be. Whether it’s Michael Cole doing his shit on commentary and being just as good as he actually is or Killer Kross and Scarlett Bordeaux being brought back into WWE, to Bayley working with Iyo Sky and Dakota Kai. Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler being booked properly. Oh my God, what a relief.
I’ve said this a million times and I’m just gonna reiterate it of how good he is and how people have literally crapped on him for years and years and years. You guys don’t even know how good he is, or what a regular Raw or what SmackDown looks like for him. That dude is in a pressure cooker every single show and he takes the brunt of it. But now, to see him like, actually just show his talent and get to show his love of professional wrestling and the fact that he’s been in the business for twenty five plus years and the depth of knowledge he has of professional wrestling, it’s awesome. It makes me really happy to see him get to breathe and do his thing, but also to see people be like ‘Oh shit, Cole is awesome’.”
Pat McAfee claimed that Michael Cole could call a match with bag as his partner. With Triple H in charge, things have clearly changed for the better, and that is all that matters now.
