Ross hopes Angle wins and we get to see a nice in-ring celebration featuring Angle’s family and friends, because Angle really deserves a fitting send off.

A listener writes into the show and asks Ross what he thinks WWE can do to make their current product better. Ross thinks WWE needs to focus more on long-term storytelling. He also thinks that someone needs to step up, grab the ball, and run with it as a huge star for the company. However, he points out that it’s hard to build stars with 50/50 booking.

Another listener writes into the show and asks Ross if The Steiner Brothers would be in his top 5 tag teams of all time. Ross says it’d be hard to leave them off that list. They weren’t the greatest talkers, so their position on such a list might vary based on how much each individual values promo skills.

A listener asks Ross about his experience working with Randy Savage at the commentary table. Ross says he enjoyed working with Savage but admits that he could be difficult to work with at times. Savage didn’t really trust people so it was hard to get close to him and build chemistry. Ross knew that Savage was a major star, so it was his job to set Savage up on commentary so fans got to hear Savage’s unique takes on matches.
