Former WWE Referee Defends Michael Cole Botch During Wrestlemania Saturday

Former WWE referee Jimmy Korderas recently posted another “Reffin’ Rant” video, and took a little time to defend Michael Cole.

During Night One of WrestleMania, the long time WWE announcer botched a call, and shouted “Sasha kicked out”, after the count of 3. Cole then tried to correct himself while the replay aired, but the damage had already been done.

Korderas posted a video in response to the botch, and told viewers:

“One thing I did have a problem with on the first night though was the finish to the match (Banks vs. Belair). Yes, Michael Cole may have made a little “error” at the end in his commentary, but everybody jumps all over it. They made that an issue instead of concentrating on what a fantastic match the ladies had! Listen, stop being so critical of every little thing. Actually, it wasn’t so bad of a mistake. It was like an honest mistake by Michael Cole. But the ladies, like I said, knocked it out of the park and people are concentrating on Michael Cole’s little flub at the end? Come on guys, you’re better than that! We’re all better than that”.

Jimmy also took time to share his thoughts on having two nights of WrestleMania. Korderas explained:

“I was on the fence at to whether or not having two nights was a bad idea. I actually liked it because the ladies got to main event the first night and knocked it out of the park. Then of course the guys did it on Sunday night, which was awesome”.

Do you think the botch was only a “little flub”? Make your opinion known in the comments section!
