Jim Ross Discusses WWE Announcing Future, Calling WrestleMania
Jim Ross published a new blog on his official website today discussing topics coming out WrestleMania weekend. Highlights are as follows:
Announcing again for WWE: “I’m not sure when I will be back for another announcing appearance but will embrace any opportunity to do what I love.”
Calling the final matches at WrestleMania XXVII: “Announcing at WM27 was an adrenaline rush but I’ll admit that I was rusty and had plenty of pre-match anxiety as I would have liked to have been able to prep more. Plus, one never knows after a long absence from WM’s just how one will respond in the heat of battle.”
WWE’s one-year build towards The Rock vs. John Cena at WrestleMania XXVIII: “The journey between now and WM28 in Miami could well be very compelling especially considering that a main event has already been tabbed. I have no issue whatsoever in dubbing a main event a year in advance because that provides fans with a destination and hopefully the journey to the destination will be full of twists and turns.”
Watching the premiere of Tough Enough alongside Steve Austin: “I hear that the upcoming episodes are much more compelling that the first, of which I thoroughly enjoyed.”
