It Came From YouTube: The Best Of Arthur “The Bulldog” Donovan on commentary

6 Submitted by on Thu, 11 June 2015, 02:00

From King Of The Ring 1994, experience the incredible insight and penetrating questions of one Arthur “The Bulldog” Donovan.

He’s truly the second coming of Jim Ross, isn’t he? What an honor it must have been for Gorilla Monsoon and Randy Savage to sit next to him all night long.

I can’t imagine why he was never invited back to do commentary for another Pay-Per-View…

In all seriousness, I really do love Art’s commentary here because you can tell despite his inane, repetitive questions, he really is trying to understand what’s going on which is more than I can say for some full-time professional announcers.

Plus, his questions and the way he asks them make me laugh. I can’t ask for anything more than that.

    “Exactly like that, except completely different.”

    I am going to be one of those individuals who considers themselves a member of Team Art.

    Someone can correct me if I am wrong about any of the following but my impression of Mr. Donovan during this time is he perhaps was a casual fan of professional wrestling but understandably knew little about the product and especially the WWF. If you look at just about every single “Guest Commentator” who didn’t come from a background or appreciation of professional wrestling, I’d argue they were all just as terrible if not more so. I wouldn’t consider Susan St. James’ or Elvira’s efforts anything remotely good (not like it was a big to do how well they actually did anyways). Sure neither of them got as much time on the Mic as Art but that’s certainly a good thing since neither of them offered anything really of substance to the commentating.

    Anyways, what’s done is done. I don’t know how many people would have been able to sit there live and do an even competent job but at least Art provided us with some great memories and as mentioned it seems like he genuinely tried to understand what was going on. Considering what he experienced on the Football Field, he might have honestly thought the Wrestlers were legitimately going out there to beat each other’s brains out.

    I had a hard time believing wrestling wasn’t “real” when I was growing up because every time my brother saw a move on TV, guess who he practiced it on? Sure I could have worked on my bump taking skills but there was nothing fake about those moves when I was on the receiving end of them.

    Hell I would take Art over the three stooges they have now any day of the week.
