Michael Cole Thinks It’s A Crime That WWE Hasn’t Won An Emmy Award

Michael Cole is the Voice of WWE and he doesn’t understand why the Emmy Awards ignore the sports entertainment giant.

For the last 26 years, Michael Cole has been a WWE guy after working as a war correspondent before that. For most of the last 15 years, Cole has been the number one voice covering WWE shows and has only missed two dates during his entire career.

As wrestling fans, we know Michael Cole is there for every WWE show whether it’s WrestleMania, SummerSlam, Royal Rumble and all the other Premium Live Events. Cole is also the lead announcer on Smackdown with Wade Barrett. Cole had a long run on Smackdown to start his career in the first decade, then he was the main guy on Raw and he’s been back on Smackdown for the last four years.

In an interview with his former WWE Smackdown analyst Pat McAfee on the Pat McAfee Show, Michael Cole explained that WWE superstars and major shows should be winning awards.

“When you have a story like the Bloodline, which for three years, should be nominated for an Emmy award. Roman Reigns should be your best actor. Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, The Usos, Solo Sikoa, Paul Heyman, all these guys should be nominated.”

Michael Cole would go on to suggest WWE should win an ESPY or Emmy Award.

“You can make an argument that we could win an ESPY or we could win an Emmy Award. What our guys do is so unique to our world. Not only are they tremendous athletes, and in my estimation, the best athletes on the planet because they can do things that so many others can’t, but on top of that, they are actors. If you watch what Roman Reigns and company did in that tag match in London, it was cinema, it really was. These guys are tremendous athletes that put their bodies on the line every week, but they’re putting together an unbelievable story.”

As he continued, Michael Cole believes it’s a crime” that WWE hasn’t won any prestigious television awards.

“How WWE has not won an Emmy award for, forget 52 weeks a year of Raw and SmackDown and NXT, scripted television, no repeats. Forget the unbelievable award-winning documentaries that our team does each week. A guy like Chris Chambers, who has been doing this for over 30 years and putting together some of the greatest documentaries this business has ever seen and the television business has ever seen. Let’s talk about never winning an Emmy award for WrestleMania. That event is absolutely incredible.”

“Being able to put on a premium live event like we do, now over two days a weekend, cannot be matched or duplicated by anyone in the television business, it just can’t. When you look at the amount of production that goes into that. The work that our executive producer Kevin Dunn does, directors like Marty Miller do, our camera guys, our backstage production people, pyrotechnics, studio people who put together incredible packages, and on top of that, the best athletes on the entire planet, and we haven’t won an Emmy award yet? That’s a crime.”

“That’s why I don’t give a damn about any of these awards. They don’t matter because they’re not being given to people who deserve it or have earned it.”
