OH MY GOD!!!!Joseph Carmine Bonsignore
, better known by his stage name Joey Styles
, is best known as "the Voice of ECW
". He was the first, the last, and the only
play-by-play announcer in the wrestling business to call entire live pay-per-views solo (that is, without a color commentator to give him some breathing time and explain moves - "wasn't done before me, hasn't been done since!"
, in Joey's own words). Styles was well-loved by fans for his commentary skills and snarky attitude, and when ECW folded, it took a while, but he eventually signed with WWE and took up the play-by-play mic on Raw
and later WWE's ECW brand
. He was Kicked Upstairs
in 2008 and currently serves as the Director of Media Content for WWE.com.
Joey is not related in any way, shape, or form to AJ Styles
