Booker T may not be a great commentator, but he does stand out.
I think it was two weeks ago in SD live thzt KO said something like he could put Tom Philips and Bayron Saxton in one suit since they both sound exactly the same and can't find the difference. I agreed with him completely.

I think that only Graves and Booker T stand out and sound completely organic with their own personality and not parrots that repeat everything exactly like Vince wants.

As others have mentioned he's no Heenan, Ventura or even Lawler level colour commentators but he's about the best we have at the moment, Commentary has never been the same, The announcers today are ok they get the job done but its nothing special and very forgetable and come across to me as too scripted, I believe Paul Heyman is quite underrated as a heel commentator or even bring back guys like Jim Cornette he's never short of things to say or Michael Hayes.

Although his commentary has improved tremendously compared to when he first started on Smackdown, it is still pretty bad. Basically, it's a bunch of nonsense string together. I'm not entertained or impressed by his commentary. The only other commentator that I dislike more than him in recent time is JBL. At the moment: Everyone > Booker > JBL.

I think he is the least robotic, and due to that he makes more mistakes. I don't hate him though, I think he is something a three man booth needs. If you have two guys just reading scripts or repeating lines from Vince in their ear, you need a guy who is a bit free wheeling. Cole isn't as bad as people make him out to be, just watch the UK Tournament to see what he is capable of without someone telling him to yell out the names of signature moves and plug social media, but he and Graves need someone off script from time to time to keep them in check, no matter how good Graves is.

Plus, who could not love Booker saying "Looking real jacked baby!"

Apparently Renee Young wasn't very good at commentary when she tried on NXT and has no desire to try again.

On topic, Booker T is an entertaining color commentary guy. Not the best, but in the age of crap commentators where Vince is in over-producing in everyone's headsets, he stands out as better than he really is.

CM Punk and Mick Foley were much better in the same role, but at least Booker is much better than JBL was in his final run. Good grief did JBL suck in his last run, he was cringe-worthy.

I'm a Booker T fan, King Booker all that. Legit bad a**. Hell still even watch some King Booker stuff still funny. But Booker the commentator, I never liked. It's not for everyone and that's ok. Not his thing.

Booker's commentary can be cringe-worthy at times. "Shucky ducky quack quack" is one of the most abysmally stupid things anyone has ever said on a WWE show. He does say some funny things from time to time and I do prefer the former wrestlers on commentary. It means more to hear their thoughts on what's going on in the ring since they've been there. Booker's a former multi time World Champion. Regardless of some of the stupid things he says, his opinion matters more than most of the others on commentary. Graves is my favorite of the current main roster commentators. Now that I stop and think about it, Booker might honestly be my 2nd favorite after Graves. Mainly due to Mauro being on NXT instead of the main roster. He's certainly better than Cole who's horrible, and unlike Saxton or Phillips at least Booker has a personality.

Booker T on commentary is great if he stays on one side....that's my only issue with him. he's more of a tweener commentator. sometimes he takes the face's side, then sometimes he'll take the heel's side.

Other than that, he's actually improved from what he was (shucky ducky, quack quack was SO stupid). he now sticks to the story they are discussing and calls a match and while he'll say off the wall stuff that heel announcers say, he at least does it well.

I started watching in 1996 and mostly everyone on commentary stood out to me...Tony Schiavonne, Lawler, JR,....then as the new millenium came I always thought Jerry Lawler/Cole and Taz/Cole were good combinations on Smackdown as Cole was the "dork" and Jerry/Taz was the smart-mouthed guy picking on him half the time during commentary. I always enjoyed Taz, JBL, and even Coach as well. And I sure do love Booker's commentary...here's some of my favorite lines from him:

1. In the R-Truth/Miz VS. Rock/Cena match from Survivor Series 2011 Truth started doing his dance before doing that split leg drop on Cena then Booker went "Aahh look at dat boy get wicked! Look at dat boy get wicked!!"

2. On RAW in late 2013 or early 2014 during a New Age Outlaws tag match Road Dogg started doing his moves and Booker said "Awww look at that shimmy he doin that shimmy!"

3. On Smackdown a few years ago Wade Barrett ran in after a match ended and started attacking somebody and Booker said "What chu talkin bout Cole back in the streets dis is what we call getting jacked!"
