Jim Ross Blogs On The Big Show vs. Shaq O’Neal, Rock ‘n Roll – WWE Hall Of Fame, More


WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog on his website and here are the highlights:

On the Rock ‘n Roll Express being inducted into WWE Hall of Fame:

“When I first heard several days ago that the Rock ‘n Roll Express were going to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame I was both surprised and happy. Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson are as good as any baby face tag team that I ever worked with in my 40+ year career. Their bouts in MId-South Wrestling vs The Midnight Express helped ‘pop’ a big man’s territory with record setting business. I’d love to see Jim Cornette induct Ricky and Robert in Orlando on Friday night March 31 on the ceremony hosted by Jerry Lawler. JC knows more bout the RnR than anyone that I know plus Corny is a magnificent talker who I’m sure would captivate the WWE HOF audience on a live mic. This might be a crazy idea but it damn sure would be entertaining. If you are new to the genre, then I suggest that you watch any of the many Midnight Express vs Rock ‘n Roll Express bouts that you can find. They are classic tag team bouts that implement tried and true strategies and techniques that are timeless and would still work today if there were teams currently in the business that were on the Express’ level. The crowd psychology of these matches are largely exquisite.”

On The Big Show vs. Shaq O’Neal at WrestleMania 33:

“Hearing that Big Show vs Shaq is on the drawing board for Wrestlemania this year and I feel that the gigantic duo would be able to produce a much better attraction/presentation if they were tag partners and were pitted against a team that could enhance the skill sets of the two big men.”

On the XFL documentary on ESPN:

“Enjoyed the ESPN 30 for 30 on the XFL and it brought back memories of how I got ‘gutted and quartered’ by the ‘legit’ sports media when I was promoted to the NBC primary game on week two with Governor Ventura. How dare a ‘wrestling guy’ even think that he could broadcast football? I have many stories about my season in the XFL and would have loved to have shared some of them but I was never contacted by ESPN to be a part of the presentation. Nonetheless, I have no XFL regrets even though I pushed myself physically to the limits  that was ill advised especially after the fact that year for a whopping $1500 per game.”
