After watching Tony's weekly huge announcements…is he the most uncharismatic human being in the history of the planet? Holy shit. They can't just get a polished, camera friendly, charming, personable human to make these announcements every week?
Eric Bischoff hit the nail on the head. Tony needs to stay as far away from that red light on the camera as possible. When they filmed this announcement segment in Colorado tonight, Tony should have been in Nebraska.
I think the theory is that the constant announcements are supposed to stop the ratings decline in the second hour, but much like the constant tournaments last year, all it's doing is burning out the novelty of the concept.
