Funaki surprisingly ended the reign of Spike Dudley to capture the Cruiserweight Championship at Armageddon in December of 2004, adding a new highlight to his already impressive announcing resume.

In addition to his wrestling ability, Funaki has shown that he can entertain. In the summer of 2002, then SmackDown! General Manager Stephanie McMahon hired Funaki to be an announcer. Immediately, Funaki gleefully dubbed himself SmackDown!'s "No. 1 announcer!"

Funaki will go to great lengths to get the scoop for WWE fans -- even if it means going into the women's locker room. He's also not afraid to ask the tough questions. He got the first interview with Al Wilson, Torrie Wilson's father, after Al was caught in the shower with Dawn Marie. Rumor has it, Barbara Walters was green with envy that Funaki got that exclusive scoop.
