— In an interview
with the The Oklahoman
, WWE Hall of Famer Jim
Ross was asked if he had always loved wrestling.

He replied: “When I grew up, the news outlets were
limited. Back in the day when I was a kid, my grandfather subscribed to the
Tulsa World and the Tulsa Tribune, and the Muskogee paper. He was a vociferous
reader. He taught me how to read when I was 5, and one of the box scores that
was easy to read through was wrestling. The Bedlam matches felt like minor bowl
games, grappling bowl games. If you were a sports fan, that was just one of the
sports you loved because it got viable, regular media coverage.”
