The following is an excerpt from a recent blog from WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross:
“I’ve really been enjoying reading the editorials of both Kevin Kelly and Mark Madden on the ‘net. I like to read other people’s opinions of the biz especially those students of the game who are no longer immersed in the day to day minutia of the pro wrestling game. Kevin was a very underrated PXP talent and ROH is lucky to have him calling their PPV’s. Madden’s wit and natural timing has always been a hit with me. I would have loved to have broadcast back in the day with Madden as I think that we would have ‘lit it up’ even though the head honchos would have likely rather have seen two, ‘stocky’ dudes like us on the radio and not TV. Madden, like Paul Heyman, had a TV persona that was organically easy to dislike which is high praise for a wrestling villain. Kevin and I worked together in WWE and he was very easy and professional to work with, always came prepared and never failed to contribute to our broadcasts. My Sooners play KK’s alma mater, Florida State, this fall in Norman and then go to Tallahassee in 2012 which should be a great, two game series for us college football freaks.”
