Considering the recent roster shakeup, I think I'd almost prefer to have him back on Smackdown. I really dug his first run there, with no less than 25 guys in his "Fave Five" at any given time.

But any Booker is good in my book. His energy is infectious, and his chemistry with Graves is pretty good.

I couldn't even tell you what they thought Coach brought to the table. Zero presence. No energy. No identifiable personality or traits. He was practically stealing money by sitting out there.

Coach is doing a broadcast on The Golf Channel next week so sadly it's a one-time return for Booker. Coach said he'll be back the following week.

That says it all.
I'd actually watch golf if Booker was on commentary.

I find Booker distracting and annoying as hell, ever since he first started commentating.

 

With Coach, I can at least ignore him, but somehow, that isn't possible with Booker. So yeah, I probably might be the only one here happy that it stay the way it i.

You are not alone.  Coach is much, much easier to tune out.

It's weird, both are annoying but at least Booker comes off like he gives a shit. If I'm going to have to deal with an annoying commentator, I'd rather have the one that at least acts like he wants to be there.

Tonight raised a question to me. Why was Lashley not Braun's mystery partner at Mania?

Because they don’t want to have Braun in the tag division and they wanted to give him something to do that wasn’t being in the battle royal.

Plus
-Granted its not on the level of Brocks or Goldbergs but they wanted to save Lashley for the Post Mania Raw surprise return pop.

-As you said, it paid off the Braun doesnt want a legit partner storyline by it not being any sort of planted legit worker, be it a local Ellsworth like guy or someone on the payroll.

OE: Yeah, technially Goldberg debuted, guess the way the whole MNW happened and ended, watching it now it does feel more like a return than someone making a debut.

It feels a little bit win-win to me. Either Lashley gets over like they want and is a legit main event star for the next few years or we get a Batista situation where his presence actually makes the fans get more behind Braun out of resentment (at which point you can turn Lashley heel anyway)
