Ross welcomes John Morrison to the show.
Morrison thinks that professional wrestling’s purpose is to give fans what they want. The hardest part of that in his opinion, is figuring out exactly what it is that the fans want to see. On the indies nowadays, fans have become accustomed to seeing incredible athleticism with performers taking unnecessary risks from time to time, and if that’s what fans want, performers will continue to try to give that to them.
Ross mentions that the hardest task in the wrestling business today has to be main-eventing a ROH show, because every single match on a ROH show is ‘balls to the wall’ and by the time the main event comes on the fans have already basically seen everything. Morrison informs that the same thing applies to most indie shows, because most promoters urge all performers to go out and put on a main event match regardless of their spot on the card.
Morrison informs that he’ll be returning to Lucha Underground for Season 4 and he’s very much looking forward to that. He mentions that his name, Johnny Mundo, translates to Johnny World, which was initially going to be his name in Lucha Underground. They switched ‘World’ to the Spanish translation, ‘Mundo’ because they thought that’d be an easier name for the fans to chant.
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 next week for another recap!
