Jim Ross Q&A: Negotiating A WCW Wrestler To WWE, TNA Being The #2 Company & More
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his Q&A section on JrsBarBaq.com. Here are some questions answers.
What was WWF President Jack Tunney like: Really, nice, fun respectful guy who was a joy to be around. Was always good for a laugh and a good story.
Was there a reason why WWE never did a 3 man announce team with Monsoon, Heenan and yourself? I’d have no idea but I wouldn’t have gone there if asked for my opinion. Heenan and Gorilla did not need me or anyone else. Three man teams rarely work in pro wrestling.
Toughest negotiation you had in trying to bring a WCW guy to the WWF:If there were issues it was that in WWE one would work more dates and the guaranteed money would be lower but that there would be no ceiling on what a talent could earn if they clicked.
Will TNA ever be the number two company: OMO TNA needs to be re=booted with a new philosophy and structure. Too many people in the biz ove think the biz and its simply not that complicated.
More disrespectful to mention the Benoit name on WWE television in anyway shape or form, or to cast a shadow over his wrestling career: Considering the actions of Chris in the last hours of his life, I’d suggest that there is no way to separate his wrestling career with the murder/suicide involving his family. He was a great wrestler but his inexplicable actions of the last hours of his life overshadow any wrestling matches in a fictitious world.
