WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross talked about various topics on the latest episode of his podcast, The Ross Report. Here are some of the highlights (courtesy of WrestleZone).
How he’d book Ronda Rousey and Becky Lynch at Survivor Series:
“I had a good idea for that thing. I figure that Rousey’s gonna go over. And I don’t have a problem with that. One loss, then again depending on how the process evolves, you ain’t gonna hurt Becky Lynch. I’m sorry (ruin your image), it’s not. She’s that over and she has a lot of momentum and so a bump in the road, depending again on how it’s executed is not going to kill her. I like Rousey going for the armbar and Becky refusing to give up and passing out. Or the referee stops it. She doesn’t have to be totally unconscious, but where as she can’t defend herself or make a decision whether or not she can continue or not. If its executed and explained, it’s a hell of a finish. Makes her tougher than a $2 steak and it gets Rousey’s armbar even more over. And you got your big investment, your big ticket player getting her hand raised. That’s just my take on it, but what do I know?”
Impact Wrestling moving to different time slot on Pop TV:
“Doin’ them no favors. Its hammering nails in coffins as far as TV vernacular is concerned. Last week the viewership was hovering around 100,000. You can’t sell goods out of an empty wagon, kids and the wagon’s damn near empty and that’s a shame because they got good creative people, they got a good talent roster, they got a lousy, they meaning IMPACT (pronoun, boy) – that won’t work. You’re perpetuating the inevitable and that’s not a good ending.”
