Ross opens today’s show speaking about the recent WWE releases. He says that Emma is a fundamentally sound performer and whatever problems she may have, she’s still young enough to fix them and make her way back to WWE if that’s what she wants to do. The same can be said for both Summer Rae and Darren Young.
He feels bad for those three individuals but this type of thing happens to all of us, and he hopes they all put their work boots on and get back into the game instead of hanging their heads and complaining on social media.
Ross says he was able to watch an early screening of Ric Flair’s upcoming 30 for 30 documentary and it really had an impact on him. It was an emotional journey and some of the stories told on the documentary upset him, partially because he was a part of some of them and he’s not proud of that. Nonetheless, Flair’s recent health issues have made him take better care of himself and he’s thankful for that.
Ross says he was excited to hear about WWE’s plans for the 25th anniversary of RAW. He hopes to receive a call and he mentions that it’d be great to potentially work with Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler again. In either event, he’d love to just travel to New York and spend some time with a lot of his old friends because he cherishes those moments now, perhaps more than ever.
He says he really enjoyed the recent Twitter war between Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho. Ross thinks there’s a method behind this madness and he assumes we’ll eventually see a match between these two men. He says that Jericho versus Omega at WrestleKingdom in the Tokyo Dome would be a massive event.
