Ross comments on the news that Jack Swagger has signed with Bellator MMA. He’s happy for Swagger and he hopes he has a long, successful MMA career. He believes Swagger’s success will depend on his eagerness to get back in wrestling room and get himself into top notch shape, but he assumes Swagger will do exactly that. He also urges Swagger to hire good striking coach.
He points out that this week marks the 12th anniversary of Eddie Guerrero’s death, and he sorely misses him. When he worked as WWE’s Head of Talent Relations he’d often have chats with Guerrero, who could be moody from time to time. Those talks meant the world to Ross, and he looks back on them fondly. He says Guerrero was a spectacular performer who loved the business and his family.
Ross welcomes Chris Jericho to the show.
Ross informs that he’s going to be a guest on the upcoming Jericho Cruise and Jericho mentions that business is really starting to pick up as of late. He believes the cruise will sell out, but he’s more worried about building this into an annual event that fans can look forward to each year. He points out that this is an all inclusive event which also gives you the chance to meet and socialize with some of wrestling’s biggest names.
Ross asks Jericho if Vince McMahon knew about his upcoming match against Kenny Omega before it was officially announced. Without getting into the fine details, Jericho says that he’d never jeopardize his relationship with McMahon by surprising him with this news.
