The Jim Ross Report Recap w/ Ryan Satin – Thoughts on AEW, Chris Jericho Signing, WWE Drops The Ball With Strowman/Lesnar Angle, More!
Moving into his thoughts on Monday Night RAW, Ross says the video package dedicated to his late friend, Mean Gene Okerlund, was phenomenal. He wishes Okerlund was alive to see it, and he thought Hogan was great in his role.
Ross was not a fan of the showdown between Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman. Strowman is apparently not cleared for contact by WWE doctors and that restricted this segment. Lesnar circling the ring like a shark didn’t do Strowman any favours in Ross’ opinion.
A listener writes into the show and asks Ross how long it took him to accept the transparency of the wrestling business, and the rise of dirt sheets. Ross says he’s still not really a fan of “pulling the curtain back” and he doesn’t see how it does any good for the business, but that’s the way it is and he simply has to deal with it.
Another listener writes into the show and asks Ross how close he ever came to seeing Vince McMahon with facial hair. Ross says he can only recall McMahon missing one day of shaving, and by the second day he’d be clean shaven again.
