    Laurinaitis and his Mr. Excitement schtick is by far the best part of the show right now, along with Otunga and the treavl mug. His delivery is so terrible it’s terrific. I know that’s really how he talks and that it’s not a different delivery than it’s been since he’s been on television, but just having that monotone and staccato speech part of Mr. Excitement’s gimmick is fantastic to me. They realized he would always suck on television, but just by him giving himself that nickname all the suck has turned to awesome.
