    Striker became downright intolerable at a certain point but at one time, he was the best and most unique commentator the WWE had seen come through in a long long time. I think he could be a great pick up for TNA or RoH.

  2. Paul says:

    Wow. I like Striker.

  3. jim says:

    Classy weather that us a valid statement or not

  4. Michael says:

    I would love to see Striker as a manager in TNA.

  5. haidar says:

    he was top notch as a announcer
    way better than jerry lawler
    gonna miss your backstage interviews with the funny facial expressions

  6. Thatguybob says:

    Probably will go to TNA seeing as they just let that Todd guy go.

  7. flas says:

    I actually really like striker. I find his color commentary unique and intresting. they let a guy like him go but the “great” khali still picks up a paycheck :/

  8. aag44 says:

    Shame. I will miss his WWE App segments with Brad Maddox.

  9. Matt c says:

    They should replace him with Ricky Morton or zack Gowen

    You know, he could have been the next Jim Ross for the WWE! Striker was not just a broadcast journalist like Michael Cole was, Striker knew wrestling! He was a good mix of Joey Styles and Jim Ross, and could have put that emotion and feeling back into the matches. WWE messed up again, but that’s no surprise.

  11. ~J* says:

    he’d actually be a good acquisition for tna taz and tenay just aren’t working on commentary.

  12. Mark says:

    Bye bye Striker Hello Cabana!

  13. WhatIDo says:

    Striker is gold. If TNA knows whats good for business, they’ll pick him up in a heartbeat.

  14. bey74 says:

    I liked him as a commentator.

  15. cold says:

    So Josh Matthews and the new girl get to keep their job but Matt Stryker doesn’t

  16. Nick A says:

    Yeah, he’s an obvious get for either TNA or any indie at this point, especially since he’s a color commentator that can also work.

  17. Scott says:

    Striker would be a good fit for the TNA announce team and because he’s ex WWE, he is well known in the wrestling biz, the only concern would be he does pretty much the same things as Jeremy Borash but JB is long overdue for a senior promotion in TNA. This could be good for everyone.

  18. Simba says:

    I’m sorry to see Striker go.
    On one hand, he became absolutely unbearable as a commentator (using constantly ridiculous terminology), but on the other hand he has a ton of charisma, he exudes confidence and is well suited to revert to a heel manager persona.

  19. ali says:

    dont overrate coltcabana he sucks balls and people only like him b/c cm punk mentioned him
    striker was gold

    gonna miss the guy

  20. Shane says:

    @ali you’re 14. Go somewhere.

  21. DBRude says:

    That sucks. I liked him, too! Does that Scott Stanford dude still work for them? ‘Cause he was corny!
