​Jim Ross Blogs – Fans Bailing On D-Bryan, Lesnar, More


Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry, here
are the highlights…

On Fans Bailing on Daniel Bryan:
Amazing that some ‘fans’ are jumping off the Daniel Bryan bandwagon now that the
highly skilled star has won the WWE World Title and the reason is that they feel
that the ‘chase’ is over and therefore DB has no more challenges ahead of him.
Has anyone noticed that Bryan is STILL smaller than virtually everyone he
wrestles and is STILL an underdog even as the champion? Keeping a fan favorite
in varying levels of jeopardy or peril works….it always has and always will.
It has worked in films and in main stream sports since their beginning, which is
why they keep score, keep track of the standings, and play for something at the
end of the year. If Bryan can continue to amazingly overcome the odds and retain
the WWE World Title in non fluke wins, when the time comes for him to lose the
championship, to Brock Lesnar would be my suggestion, say at Summerslam or even
in November at Survivor Series, DB won’t fade away. The best pure wrestler in
the world isn’t going to disappear unless he is removed from TV or he suddenly
forgets how to perform his craft.

On Brock Lesnar: IMO
Lesnar should not lose in 2014….at some point become WWE World Champion and
then pass the imaginary torch to a young, up and coming star at WM31 ala a Roman
Reigns, etc. Just my independent opinion which arguably is no more viable than

On His Fox Sports 1 Project: My narration of a
@FoxSports1 feature on the young, boxing son of the late Tommy Morrison airs
Monday night on FoxSports1. I will tweet more info when I receive it. Morrison
was a distant relative of John Wayne, defeated George Foreman for the WBO
Heavyweight Title and died much too young at age 44. The native Oklahoman was
also a star high school football player at Jay, Oklahoma and I officiated some
of his games when he played there back in the day. It’s a really cool feature on
Trey Lippe Morrison who’s looking to impact the heavyweight division in the
world of boxing.

On His Podcasts: This week’s Ross
Report podcast is going great guns with guest @TheJimCornette as we essentially
solve all the ills of today’s pro wrestling genre. Seriously, it’s one of the
best discussions that I have ever participated in regarding the business that
many of us still embrace. I hope you will check it out at podcastone.com or via
iTunes. Next Tuesday pm our conversation with the amazingly talented and
beautiful Gail Kim drops and we explore Gail’s career, the major differences in
working in WWE vs. Impact Wrestling, Gail’s overall take on women in wrestling,
her future, the delicate balancing of her career and her marriage to celeb chef
Robert Irvine of the Food Network and much more. Gail is dead on honest about
every topic and her candor was extremely refreshing. This past Tuesday night I
talked for almost two hours with Shawn Michaels and it was the most compelling
interview that I’ve done to date as HBK shares what it was like to to sitting at
the Gorilla Position at WM30 specifically when the Undertaker’s Streak abruptly
and shockingly ended. It’s a perspective that can’t be replicated and that Ross
Report Podcast is excited to premier on Tuesday May 6. Shawn’s openness and
straight talk makes this one of the most riveting and informative podcasts ever.
This week I also confirmed Lance Storm and MVP for future Ross Report Podcasts
as we keep cranking them out and hope that we can continue to build our audience
by producing and recording some stout shows.
