The Ross Report Recap w/ Kane – Status Of His Wrestling Career, Relationship with Paul Bearer, Is Undertaker Done? More!

[adace-ad id="652493"]

Ross asks Jacobs if he thinks The Undertaker is actually retired for good. Ross thinks that if Undertaker wants to have one more match, WWE will certainly permit that. Jacobs agrees and feels that this decision is all up to ‘Taker, and he assumes ‘Taker’s thought process revolves around the notion of wanting to be the same guy in the ring as fans remember from years gone by.

Ross doesn’t believe that Undertaker will ever work another match if he can’t get back to the level physically that fans are accustomed to seeing him in. Jacobs definitely agrees with that, but he adds that he’d love to team up with Undertaker for one more match as the Brothers of Destruction.

A listener writes into the show and asks Jacobs what it was like working with Steve Austin. Jacobs says the highlight of his career is winning his first WWE Championship from Austin during their First Blood match at King of the Ring 1998, even though their match was over-shawdowed by Undertaker vs. Mankind. He says that Austin was so over, that his opponents didn’t really have to do anything. He considers Austin to be one of the three top stars of all time alongside Hulk Hogan and The Rock.

Ross asks Jacobs about his relationship with Paul Bearer. Jacobs says that he was very good friends with Bearer and if it wasn’t for Bearer, there would have never been a ‘Kane’. He thinks Bearer’s role in the storytelling prior to Kane’s debut was vitally important in getting that character over to begin with, and he ended up travelling with Bearer for years as Bearer took him under his wing.

That sums up this week’s episode of The Ross Report. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya tomorrow for another recap!
