Jim Ross Q&A: Austin-HHH At WM30?, The Rock’s WWE Future, Jake Roberts
On whether or not Jake “The Snake” Roberts was known as a tough guy backstage: “No…he was known more for his uncanny ring psychology and his verbal skills among other things. Great mind for the business.”
On working with Paul Heyman on-air as an announcing team: “Paul was very good and I enjoyed working with him a great deal. I provided him his start in broadcasting while we were in WCW. Quick on his feet, knowledgeable and a great villain.”
On rumors of a Steve Austin vs. Triple H match at WrestleMania 30: “I know of no creative plans for Austin vs. HHH whatsoever and if I did know and it was confidential I would not divulge it. I’d surmise it is another attempt to increase internet traffic.”
On feelings that Paul Heyman hurts Brock Lesnar’s character by not allowing him to speak: “Disagree. Heyman helps Lesnar immensely by keeping Lesnar alive on TV when Brock is not there.”
On chances of The Rock wrestling again: “I’d suggest Rock hasn’t wrestled his last match but I also don’t think that he will have many more. Hopefully one more. TBD”
