Michael Cole Names Greatest Match He’s Called In WWE Career

Michael Cole

During his 26-year announcing career, Michael Cole has called some of the biggest matches and moments in WWE history.

Over the same period, he has been partnered with many of the greats, including the likes of Jim Ross, JBL, and Corey Graves. One of the most popular colour commentators he has worked with, though, is Pat McAfee.

During a recent appearance on McAfee’s YouTube show, Cole was asked to name the greatest match he had called. With hundreds of bouts under his belt, it was a tall task, but Cole went with the match that got the biggest box office, John Cena vs. The Rock at WrestleMania 28.

“Box office-wise, probably Rock-Cena at WrestleMania. The first one,” Cole said. “One of the biggest stories that we’d ever done. Just that moment in time where Rock and John were in their careers. That was probably the biggest that I had the pleasure of calling.”

He then turned to the biggest moment, saying his favourite would be when Seth Rollins sensationally cashed in his Mony In The Bank briefcase during Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns’ main event clash at WrestleMania 31. Rollins went on to complete the ‘Heist of the Century’ by winning the match and the WWE Championship

“But there’s been so many over the years. Roman Reigns has just had some incredible moments.

“Probably the greatest moment, though, was the night that Seth Rollins cashed in Money in the Bank at WrestleMania to beat Brock and Roman on the same night. That was probably my favorite moment.”
