Michael Sean Coulthard, to most of you this is just a name, but in fact this is the birth name of WWE television broadcaster Michael Cole, also known as "The Voice of WWE."
Why is this significant, you ask? Well my stepdad works with Michael Cole's brother, Peter Coulthard, and he has informed me and my stepdad that Michael Cole, as of last week has been put into wrestling school in Atlanta for a period of three weeks, undoubtedly in preparation for a possible match at WWE WrestleMania XXVII in Atlanta.
With this being reported to me it could be speculated that his opponent at WrestleMania will be none other than his broadcast partner, Jerry "The King" Lawler who just so happens to be the No. 1 contender to the champion Cole has a man-crush on, WWE Champion The Miz.
With Cole more than likely going to be ringside at the broadcast table during this match, it safe to assume that Cole will get involved in this match in some type of way, likely costing Lawler the WWE Championship for the second time (if you remember, he cost Lawler the WWE Championship in a TLC match on Raw a few months ago).
Since then, there has been hostility between the two and with a rule preventing Lawler from retribution from the anonymous Raw general manager, Lawler has been forced to get along with the "tool," as Edge would call him.
Sunday will likely be the last straw for Lawler, cultivating in a singles match at WrestleMania. According to Cole, he is covered in bruises and it is, and I quote, "one of the hardest things I've ever done."
Do You Like the Idea of Michael Cole vs. Jerry "The King" Lawler at WrestleMania XXVII?
Cole, because of his very successful heel commentator turn, has received death threats via e-mail ironically, so he has been given bodyguards from WWE.
I've heard of dedicated fans, but sending death threats to a commentator simply doing his job as a heel (and obviously he's doing a good job) is just stupid. Do I have to remind some of you that although it's awesome and entertaining, IT'S FAKE!!!
I, for one, am happy that Lawler will get an opportunity to kick Cole's ass at WrestleMania due to all the hell he has given him over the last few months, from costing him the WWE Championship to calling him a limelight stealer, as well as judging everything Lawler does.
I am happy that WWE also had the intelligence to put Cole into wrestling school to make the match somewhat watchable. I am hoping, however, that the match is not only short, but also in the beginning so that it will not take away from any other matches time-wise.
Maybe with two of WWE's commentators wrestling, we will get our wish in seeing Good Ol' J.R. make his return to the announcer booth and call another WrestleMania with Josh Matthews.
Let me also point out that with The Miz, likely not to retain his WWE Championship cleanly against a 61-year old man who is 40 years out of his prime, for the second time, continues to make him look like the weakest, chicken-shit champion in WWE history.
I, a Miz fan, have not been impressed with his title reign and the only way I think this reign can be salvaged is with a clean, hard-fought victory over Superman himself, John Cena.
So there you have it guys, Michael Cole vs. Jerry "The King" Lawler in a Singles Match at WrestleMania XXVII will probably happen. What do you guys think of not only the news, but the idea itself?
