JR Talks Watching WWE TV as a Fan

In a recent interview conducted for The Miami Herald to promote his one-man shows coming to NYC, Jim Ross had the following to say regarding watching WWE TV from a fan perspective:

"I'm always amazed at the amount of work that everybody does on a weekly basis. I don't think you really appreciate it until you step away from it. You see how hard everyone at WWE works. The broadcaster, just using that as an example, the hours that they spend traveling and preparing and working and traveling again in an environment that has no off-season kind of goes off the radar. The travel and work that a guy like Michael Cole or JBL [John Bradshaw Layfield] does is sometimes underappreciated [sic] by the masses, but I can tell you from experience that is very challenging to do what they do. I'm somewhat in awe of their workload and all the things that they do getting the show on the air, not withstanding all the crew and people in the TV truck and people back in Stanford who put the video packages together. It's pretty amazing when you see it come together.

I'm just a fan. The announcement of the WWE Network was all news to me. I hadn't been preconditioned at all about what the network was going to be or what shape it was going to take or the unique programming features or how it was going to be structured. I am constantly impressed and amazed with the amount of work that many people put into the whole presentation. I enjoy watching as a fan and not knowing what's in segment four or what's going to be in segment six and all those things. I have no desire to know."
