JR Speaks on Y2J vs Lawler, Kozlov/JBL and His ‘Mania Duties

Nick Paglino

-JR on what he will be calling at Wrestlemania: "As an announcer, I came out of Monday night’s show with plenty of material to help build a great story for any match I happen to broadcast come April 5. I refer to these matches that I may happen to call because I don’t realistically think that I will know what bouts I will call until the day of WrestleMania. No worries at all on my end as any announcer worth his salt, or catering, will prepare to call all the bouts booked on any given show especially WrestleMania."

-JR on the tag team combo of JBL and Kozlov: "How a hard headed, know it all Texan is going to get along with a pure bred, Russian is beyond me. If JBL has issues with Kozlov next Monday then we might have our selves an IC champ that will be the locals favorite in Houston against, potentially, a Russian. Who are the Texas fans going to invest in emotionally, a Texan or a Russian? The over/under for JBL’s hook ’em horns sign is about a million."

-JR on the potential of Chris Jericho vs Jerry Lawler: "It seems inevitable that somewhere down the road that based on what the King has said on multiple times that it doesn’t take a rocket scientist or a Hollywood movie Mogul to figure out that a pending Lawler vs Jericho bout has got to happen some time, somewhere simply based on Lawler’s comments on Raw."
