The following are highlights from the latest online blog by WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross:
On TNA issues: “The creative process at most wrestling companies has become much too over thought in my view and I feel that what many of fans often see on TV bear out that opinion. While back on the topic of TNA, their issues allegedly are many. I don’t know their internal status so when people ask me what I would do to ‘fix their problems’ any answer that I would provide would be less than thought out or based on a through study of the company. It’s irrelevant any way… Wrestling TV shows all need to be unique. They all need to have exclusive features and benefits that best fits their talent roster and corporate philosophy of entertaining their viewers. However, for any one company to blatantly copy another is just downright silly.”
On plans for his one-man show: “We’re a little closer to getting my one man show concept being launched in North America and it looks as if NYC may well be the kickoff event for one night only in the Big Apple sometime in the early part of 2014. Details are still being discussed. Follow me on Twitter @JRsBBQ for the most up to date info. 2014 is going to be a fun year and I hope that you will support our effort and join me when I come to a city near you.”
On women in the Royal Rumble match: No…not a fan of women being in the Royal Rumble. Not even remotely interested and feels it lessens the suspension of disbelief of the entertainment performance. Intergender wrestling is of no interest to me. You asked and I answered. Is that being sexist? Don’t think so.”
