Let’s Say Nice Things About... Mike Adamle

In an effort to bring some positivity to professional wrestling—and the world for that matter—Cageside Seats and its community will say nice things about people and things in wrestling every single day throughout 2017.

Remember, only positive comments allowed here. Negativity will not be tolerated, and that includes back-handed compliments and troll comments. Any comments that are not in the spirit of this feature will be flagged, deleted, and posters of said comments may be subjected to a ban.

Today’s subject: former RAW General Manager and ECW announcer Mike Adamle. Now there’s a deep cut for you longtime wrestling fans.

I’ll start. I think WWE really wanted him to be the man to replace Jim Ross at the commentary table. I mean, he’s a solid play-by-play man when he does other sports. Speaking of which, Adamle was as much a part of the late 80s/early 90s hit American Gladiators as the gladiators themselves. How did NBC not call this guy up when they did the reboot?

Oh, and as it turned out, he handled most of his sports commentating duties and WWE stuff while suffering the effects of CTE (he played in the NFL for six years). Kinda makes me think about his brief time in the E a little differently.

Also, he completed a triathlon at age 60. That’s a grown ass man.

Your turn now. Say something nice about Mike Adamle.

Got a suggestion for a future “Let’s Say Nice Things About...”? Hit me up on the Twitter gimmick @notoriouseddie. I may not always respond, but I promise I will read it.
