JR Blog: Being Left Off SummerSlam, RAW’s 3-Man Team & More



WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with another blog, which you can read in its entirety over at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what JR wrote about:

Not Commentating At SummerSlam: “Obviously I would have liked to have been a part of the Summer Slam announce team but I enjoyed Tweeting throughout the show and gained about 2,000 new followers as a result.”

The Live Crowd At SummerSlam & Which Match Stole The Show: “The Staples Center live audience really did their share in making the PPV feel special. It can’t be overstated how important the live audience is to any TV broadcast. I felt that Christian vs. Orton stole the show Sunday and that the final, two Summer Slam main events delivered as they should.”

RAW’s 3-Man Announcing Team: “I thought the three man announce team had a solid night in SD and it shows that we are all working hard to establish rhythm and develop chemistry. I’ve read where some think that I’m the ’3rd wheel’ in the scenario which is somewhat insulting but motivating at the same time.”

The New Stone Cold DVD: “Worked Tuesday night viewing the new Stone Cold DVD with Steve Austin and the talented WWE TV production crew. Austin’s FOUR DVD set will be in stores around the end of November and should be on shelves worldwide for the holidays. @steveaustinBSR and I did alternate commentary ala a narration on Steve’s Wrestlemania bouts vs. Bret Hart (WM13), HBK (WM15), and the Rock (WM17). Even though these matches have been on other DVDS they have never had our alternate commentary which will provide fans will a unique, inside look at the matches in both an informative and humorous, at times, manner. This was one of the most enjoyable broadcasting experiences that I’ve had in years.”

“The closing music video for the 2+ hour documentary portion of the Austin DVD is as moving as any I’ve ever experienced in the business.”
