Jim Ross is an American professional wrestling ...
On why he likes recruiting football players into pro wrestling: "The history of football players becoming successful pro wrestlers has long been established. Simply do the research. They are generally physically and mentally tough men, they come from a structured, team environment, understand the locker room mentality and obviously have above average athletic skills. Football is certainly not the only sport that should be scouted. Also, highly motivated, well trained independent wrestlers are also high on my personal list of people to scout. No matter one's background, athleticism and the 'it' factor are essential along with a passion for the genre."
On WWE's rumored cruiserweight show: "I read those rumors online but I have no direct knowledge. If they do, I'd be more than willing to volunteer to do the play by play for those bouts. Smaller, skilled talents need a showcase to display their abilities."
On what kind of match he expects out of Rock and Cena at WrestleMania 28: "Competitive, athletic and fundamental. Both are ground guys who can brawl and exchange holds. I think the crowd will be hugely pro-Rock which will likely highly motivate Cena. I'm not going to pick a winner but I am greatly anticipating a fitting close of the mega event. There is LOTS of pressure on both men to deliver in the position that they are placed."
