Jim Ross Comments on a Return to Commentary, The Undertaker’s WM 29 Status, More
– Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry. Here are the highlights…
On a UK PPV: Will WWE ever have a PPV in the United Kingdom? Never say never but being live in North America at 7 or 8 p.m… eastern time is imperative. Being LIVE, LIVE is the key here in my view. Without question, WWE would be able to fill a stadium in the UK but addressing the time zone, live broadcast issues are matters that I simply can’t answer.
On a Return to Commentary: When are you returning to broadcast Monday Night Raw? I have zero plans on returning to weekly TV at this time. Don’t get me wrong I still have great passion for broadcasting in WWE but not for the weekly travel that it takes to facilitate such. When WWE wants to utilize me at a specific event, they will. @MichaelCole and @Jerrylawler are where they need to be.
On The Undertaker: Will the Undertaker wrestle at WM29? I honestly and truly have no idea. However, I don’t believe all that I read online from those who are speculating multiple tales regarding the subject. Do I think that the Undertaker is done? No. Absolutely not.
On JBL: Do I think that JBL gets the credit he deserves for his long, title run? No. @JCLayfield reinvented himself multiple times after we hired him and each time he got better. He’s a smart Texan who likely overachieved, as he and I both did in marriage, in the eyes of his peers. John was an excellent athlete who did not want to be average. He was a competitor who wanted the spotlight and was willing to put in the work to get it. If that meant pushing someone aside, so be it. I applaud that mindset and am proud of John’s certain, HOF career. He’s also a breath of fresh air on WWE TV and brings a high IQ to the broadcast table in his antagonist role.
