There's a lot going on in your typical pro wrestling match. Not only are the wrestlers performing different moves on each other, there is often a detailed storyline, a depiction of good vs evil or light vs dark.

If you haven't been watching wrestling regularly, how are you going to make sense of it all? With a great announce team, of course!

Being a great pro wrestling announcer takes more than just being able to form coherent sentences. The announce team must build up excitement for upcoming events, put over the wrestlers in the ring, and remind fans of who is on which side of the heel/face fence.

Without further ado, here are ten of the best announcers.

#10 Corey Graves

It's no secret that former wrestlers make some of the best announcers. Corey Graves had a promising in-ring career which was tragically cut short by multiple concussions. Unable to get medical clearance to return to the ring, he instead branched out and became a member of the announce team.

Working his way up the ladder, Corey started by working as a pre-show panellist for events, then became an NXT announcer. After impressing both fans and the WWE, he was promoted to the main roster and now broadcasts on the WWE's flagship show. Raw.

While Corey is just beginning his announce career, he has already shown great proficiency, and will no doubt become the face of WWE's announce division in the future.
