The Ross Report Recap w/ Pete Gas – From Fan to Superstar, Working with Rock/Austin, Shane McMahon’s WWE Return, More!
Ross doesn’t understand why WWE kept Lesnar’s RAW appearance a surprise this week and he thinks that a main event talent should be advertised. On the other hand, he thought Shawn Michaels’ surprise appearance was good and Roman Reigns cut a terrific, edgy promo. Ross still thinks that Reigns should screw Undertaker at WrestleMania, and exit that match as a red hot heel.
He also says that the last segment of RAW was very well executed, and the promo between Triple H and Mick Foley was exceptional. He thought that we finally saw a real babyface side of Seth Rollins, and that’s something Ross has been waiting for for some time. He believes that Rollins will defeat Triple H at WrestleMania, as he should.
Ross welcomes Pete Gas to the show.
Gas lived a real life Cinderella story which he is now telling in his new book. Gas was a high school friend of Shane McMahon, and was a big fan of the business. He went from being a fan to working alongside some of the biggest stars in the business on Monday Night RAW in only 3 days. His ‘one-off’ appearance turned into a 3 year stint in WWE as part of the Mean Street Posse.
He says that when entering the WWE locker room, most of the guys were fine with his arrival initially but as his role was increased and his stint extended, he started to feel more resentment from his peers. He does admit that he could sense that a few guys were not overly thrilled with his role in the company right away, and Test was someone who was always very stiff in the ring with him and the other two members of the Mean Street Posse.
