JR Speaks on Cage Matches, Austin/Raw & Wrestling Content

Nick Paglino

Jim Ross has updated his blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:

"Been reading on line some interviews with those in the biz who feel that Cage Matches need not a winner via the stipulations set forth in the presentation. I could not disagree more. Cage Matches were created to bring about closure, literally and figuratively, and to have a disqualification in a cage match is wrong…in my opinion."

"No wrestling show will survive in today’s marketplace with wall to to wall wrestling as viable "talk" is essential. However, I do think most fans tune in to a wrestling show to watch more wrestling than to hear talk."

"I assume this info is accurate but I have not talked to Steve about it but if it is true then it will be a good thing for Monday Night Raw and for Stone Cold which results in the desired win/win . We’ve already received some emails here asking if I would be a part of that particular Raw and my answer is a simple, non complicated, Gorilla Monsoon-esque, "Highly Unlikely."
