* [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Crowning Moment Of Awesome]]: His [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech The Reason You Suck]] WorkedShoot, which is easily one of the best in the business. On the May 1 2006 edition of ''Raw'', Joey Styles took then-announce partner Wrestling/JerryLawler, Wrestling/JimRoss, [[Wrestling/VinceMcMahon Vince [=McMahon=]]], WWE, and ''practically the entire American professional wrestling industry'' to task in his big "I Quit" speech before moving to the ECW announce position a few weeks later:
--> '''Joey Styles:''' ''[[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/kngVODaLUKrw5TP2I6 Six months ago, WWE called me! I didn't call this company because I wasn't looking for a job; I didn't need a job. WWE called me, because they had humiliated and fired again! Jim Ross. So I get JR's spot. And from WEEK ONE, week after week, I got an ongoing lecture about the differences between Professional Wrestling and Sports Entertainment!]]
** The time in ECW when two fans held up signs denouncing Joey and his commentary partner Joel Gertner, claiming they were no [[Wrestling/{{WCW}} Mike]] [[Wrestling/{{TNA}} Tenay]] or Larry Zbyszko. Unfortunately, they couldn't spell Zbyszko's name properly, and Joey unloaded on them:
--->''First of all, I think I speak for Joel [Gertner] and myself, that we're thankful we'll never be Mike Tenay and Larry Zbyszko. Why don't you go sell whatever decrepit little motor home you live in, trade it in for a $.50 wrestling magazine and figure out how to spell his name? See, I remember you; you're the illiterate moron who spelled it wrong last time, six months ago. You're the best argument for not sending my kids to a public school I have ever seen!''
** When Eric Bischoff raided the broadcast booth at the first One-Night Stand PPV, Joey let loose with this gem:
--->''By the way, you are the worst goddamn play-by-play man I've ever heard, and if you didn't run that company, you wouldn't have gotten a freakin' headset!''
** Him punching out Wrestling/JohnBradshawLayfield, who has a reputation for being the locker room bully.
* EnsembleDarkhorse
* [[EveryoneHasStandards Even Joey Styles has Standards]]: Joey Styles, the long time ECW announcer, was disgusted with Wrestling/MickFoley's famous Hell-in-a-Cell match at the 1998 King of the Ring, as revealed on the alternate commentary to said match on Foley's most recent DVD set.
* HarsherInHindsight --> DudeNotFunny: During a match featuring Wrestling/MikeAwesome against Wrestling/MasatoTanaka, Awesome dives from the ring onto Tanaka on the outside. Joey (who had a massive grudge against Awesome for leaving ECW for WCW) goes "Suicide dive by Mike Awesome, and it's a shame he didn't succeed in taking his own life!" while on commentary. Mike Awesome hanged himself in 2007.
* HolyShitQuotient: Joey [[BigOMG will let you know]] when this is going down.
* OlderThanTheyThink: Wrestling/CarlitoColon insisted he was a wrestler on WWE Raw long before the ECW stuff, yet he didn't get any reaction at all. [[SarcasmMode Joey Styles complains though and he's awesome.]]
* PoorMansSubstitute: Averted; most of the IWC feels that Styles was more than a worthy successor to Jim Ross as play-by-play announcer of ''Raw''. He's also, in fact, been the object of ''other'' Poor Man's Substitutes (Wrestling/MichaelCole and Josh Matthews in [[FanNickname WWECW]]).
