When their in-ring careers end, these guys could do wonders behind the desk.
Over the years, many an in-ring performer has made the transition to becoming a wrestling commentator or analyst.
To name a few; Gorilla Monsoon, Lord Alfred Hayes, Jesse Ventura, Jerry Lawler, Tazz, Booker T and JBL are just some of the names to have had prolonged spells behind the desk after their in-ring days came to an end. Then there?s others such as Roddy Piper, Dusty Rhodes, Mr. Perfect and Ted DiBiase who have had shorter runs calling the action.
The use of such names to talk viewers through the action playing out on their screens has always brought a certain sense of credibility and legitimacy to the action. After all, these guys have supposedly been there and done it themselves, so who better to comment on what?s playing out in the squared circle?
To be a great, memorable commentator one needs to obviously be good on the mic, but then there?s a certain charisma, a certain eloquence, and a certain believability to convey the actions in front of your eyes. A good commentator or analyst has to be able to get over the importance of what is happening in the ring, why it is happening, and the future consequences of what?s going on.
It takes a unique performer to put all of this together, but here?s 11 WWE performers who could effortlessly transition to the broadcast booth in the future.
