Jim Ross Q&A: His Dream Matches, ROH & TNA, ECW’s Future

Ryan Clark


Jim Ross has posted his latest batch of Q&A’s on his official website. You can check out the full feature by clicking here. Some highlights from this edition:

On the Fabulous Freebirds entering the WWE Hall Of Fame: With Terry Gordy already deceased it would be great if the Freebirds could enter while Hayes and Roberts are still alive and can appreciate it. Perhaps in 2009.

On what bouts he would like to see if he could match up wrestlers from different eras: Jack Brisco vs. Bret Hart for startersâ<80>¦..Terry Funk vs. Stone Cold for anotherâ<80>¦..Bruiser Brody vs. Mick “Cactus Jack” Foleyâ<80>¦.how are those for starters?

On why WWE would include TNA and ROH news on their website: One would assume to be of more full service to their sitevisitors.

On ECW’s future and whether it will last: Hard to say what will be around for years to come but even though the show does in the low 1â<80><99>s in the ratings it is still one of Sci Fiâ<80><99>s highest rated shows plus it is live, original programming for them. I too hope it lasts long term. The kind and gentler Joey Styles along with Tazz are fun to listen to and I like the exposure many of the new talents receive. Nonetheless it is old school ECW in name only.

On why WWE is not using any Divas in a straightforward wrestling match at Wrestlemania: Sex appeal and sizzle are prioritized higher than actual in ring wrestling. Young males apparently like the sex appeal more than athleticism.
