Athletes on Boats

WWE Announcer Guidelines

"DON'T SCREAM. We are all guilty of it from time to time, but there is nothing more annoying than to listen to an Announcer scream at you for an hour. It distracts from the in-ring product. Start slow and build toward the climax. Give yourself a place to go at the conclusion of an exciting match. DON'T EQUATE SCREAMING WITH EXCITEMENT." This is just one of the many rules for WWE announcers, according to some leaked documents that appeared on Reddit.


P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day
