JR: TNA Is No WCW, WrestleMania 24 Rumors, Watching ROH/TNA, More
Jim Ross has posted another blog entry on his official web site. Below are the highlights:
– I do not see TNA on the same level at this time as WCW whatsoever. Not even close as Turner and Time Warner had much more resources.
– I have no clue who is spreading the rumors of a potential Ric Flair vs. Sting match at Wrestlemania 24. I would be shocked if that bout is even being considered, much less if it would ever occur. I feel that it is wishful thinking on the part of some long time fans, and nothing more than that.
– I have been fortunate to have been asked to write many forewords on a variety of books, but the toughest to write may have been “Brody” because it had been so long since Frank Goodish had passed away and I had to re-create some of the experiences we had together, but once they returned my interactions of years ago with Bruiser Brody became much clearer. I highly recommend reading “Brody” if you have the opportunity.
– Mr. McMahon is a shoo-in to be in the WWE Hall of Fame at any time. Love him or hate him no one can dispute Vince McMahon’s contributions to the wrestling business. I don’t know when, but I feel it is a guarantee that this will happen… perhaps at the 25th Anniversary of Wrestlemania in 2009.
– I have no idea if there is going to be a Fan Axxcess or not at WM24, but I assume WWE Hall of Fame tickets will be available soon. Perhaps in the early part of 2008.
– With my schedule, as I have said before, I do not watch ROH DVDS and rarely watch a TNA broadcast. In my current role, I am not scouting talent, but I would assume someone at the WWE watches these programs to scout prospective new hires. Some idiot will take my busy schedule as a sign of me “losing my passion,” which is absolutely brilliant. Not.
