JR Blog: Announcer Of The Year, Orton/Austin Comparisons

Matt Boone

The following are excerpts from the latest online blog of WWE Hall Of Fame announcer Jim Ross:

Jim Ross on Daniel Bryan/Bryan Danielson: “Daniel Bryan aka Bryan Danielson is by far the best pure wrestler of the NXT group, eliminated or not, and no matter what his name may or may not be today.”

Jim Ross on picking announcer of the year: “Obviously, I don’t choose to alienate my friends and peers with a bogus award. Any wrestling fan has just as much right as me to pick who they like to listen to broadcast wrestling matches these days as do I.”

Jim Ross on Randy Orton/Steve Austin comparisons: “Randy is merely being his TV persona but it does have some Austin-esque qualities. Randy just has to continue to put his own, individual touches on his fan favorite persona of which I have very high hopes for as time goes on.”
