Jim Ross Explains Why He Had To Re-Call Mae Young Classic Matches



The Mae Young Classic will debut with four episodes released on 8/28 to be viewed on the WWE Network via Video on Demand. WWE will then release another four episodes on 9/4. The sports entertainment company will hold the finals live on 9/12 at 10 PM on the WWE Network from the SmackDown TV event in Las Vegas, Nevada.

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross, who’ll be the lead commentator for the tournament, mentioned on the latest episode of The Ross Report that he and fellow Hall of Famer Lita had to redo the calls for 16 matches last week. Here is what he had to say (h/t Wrestling Inc):

“I felt like we did a better job. The job wasn’t bad the first go-around, but the creative change, the things that we were talking about were planned and now they had been tweaked,” JR said. “That’s entertainment, that’s the business. Anytime you get a chance to do the rewrite, you’re gonna do the rewrite. Always make it better, always make it better.”

“I like the fact that it’s a single-elimination tournament, the winners advance, the losers go home. Therefore it is an episodic production, so it goes from chapter one to chapter two, that kind of thing,” JR said. “So if Lita and I do our job, which we really tried hard to do, we’ll give you enough background on these ladies that you’ll care about them enough to want to watch them participate in this tournament and see if they have to survive or if they have to go home.”
