Jim Ross Blog: NXT Feedback, WWE ’13, 1000th Episode Of RAW
Jim Ross is back with another blog update. Here are a few highlights.
Possibly being called up for 1000th episode of Raw: WWE is approaching the 1000th episode of Monday night Raw in St. Louis on July 23. I’ve got to believe that this will be a hot ticket in St. L. I’ve cleared my calendar in case I’m called upon to be a part of the festivities. The best years of my WWE career were spent doing the live, Monday Night Raw broadcasts when, often times, the chips were down during the Monday night wars. Being a part of WWE’s franchise broadcast was a honor. I hope that those that are engaged in today’s Monday night process fully realize how special it is to be along for the ride on Monday nights and never approach the gig as merely a job.
New WWE NXT feedback: I got tons of tweets this week from fans who enjoyed the new, NXT. I worked on all of the first four broadcasts and appear in the main event segments in the next round of four shows. Partnering with William Regal was an enjoyable experience as we tried to make the show about the talents by using objectivity and honesty and not being the “Battling Bickerson’s.” The job of every broadcaster in this genre is to enhance and better represent the talents in ways in which the viewer will emotionally invest and not roll their eyes in absurd disbelief.
Working on WWE ’13 video game: Still doing some finishing touches on the exciting, new THQ produced WWE13 and all I can say is that this game brings the ATTITUDE!
