Cole was asked about his research procedure before calling a show as big as WrestleMania. However, Cole ended up claiming that WrestleMania is one of the easiest shows to provide commentary on: (h/t: USA Today)

People look at me weird when I tell them this… WrestleMania Sunday, to me, is one of the easiest shows of the year to call. We’ve covered these stories for months. We know every single angle of what’s going to happen leading up to these matches. There’s so much pomp and circumstance surrounding WrestleMania. There’s these larger-than-life entrances and unbelievable music that’s being played.

We don’t talk wall-to-wall a lot of times during WrestleMania because you want to be able to lay out, you want to be able to allow the audience to enjoy the moment, and to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Seeing this massive set, seeing our superstars walk down the ramp on a 60-yard entranceway. You don’t want to talk for a lot of that, and once the match begins, you just lose yourself in it. A lot of our stuff throughout the year is building towards this moment, and when WrestleMania comes it’s really just ‘go out there and have fun and feel it.’

Now from a research standpoint, yeah sure I’ll go to our website, I’ll go to websites all over the place and do research on superstars’ WrestleMania records and what some of the highlights were in their WrestleMania careers, so on and so forth. But we try not to get bogged down in a lot of that at WrestleMania. It really is a celebration.

Michael Cole’s broadcast partner, Corey Graves has been quite popular with the fans ever since his commentary debut. The Saviour of Misbehaviour has been praised by fans and critics alike for his commentary work in the past two years.

Cole also praised his partner and said that he is a natural:

Oh, I mean, Corey’s a natural. There’s certain people you know are going to make it as commentators when they haven’t had the experience before. The first guy that comes to mind is Tazz. I knew years ago when I first started working with Tazz on Sunday Night Heat and eventually we became a team on SmackDown, you just knew because of his personality and his edge and who he was, his work ethic, you knew his was going to be a great commentator.

And the same thing with Corey. I knew after just working with him a couple of times down at the Performance Center in the booth when we were looking at making a transition for him from in-ring to commentary, I knew after two or three times that Corey had it. He’s quick-witted, he’s very fast on his feet. He has in-ring experience, he has been a champion, so there is some legitimacy to that. He’s sarcastic, he’s funny, he’s hip, he’s got a different look. Corey, really, was a home run, and I knew he was going to be.
