With the recent addition of younger faces on the WWE television announce team, a lot of talk has come of the future of WWE announcing in the next generation.

The feeling is Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler are seen as stars and are getting up there in age, while the younger guys like Michael Cole, Todd Grisham, Josh Matthews and Matt Striker are "colorless" and "faceless" entities that simply put over the action that takes place on television broadcasts.

Vince McMahon in general likes the idea of his announcers not being the stars and being guys who just put over what is created by the writing team.
