Jim Ross was recently interviewed by The Oklahoman. In the brief Q&A, Ross was asked whether or not he had always loved wrestling. Ross responded with the following:
"When I grew up, the news outlets were limited. Back in the day when I was a kid, my grandfather subscribed to the Tulsa World and the Tulsa Tribune, and the Muskogee paper. He was a vociferous reader. He taught me how to read when I was 5, and one of the box scores that was easy to read through was wrestling. The Bedlam matches felt like minor bowl games, grappling bowl games. If you were a sports fan, that was just one of the sports you loved because it got viable, regular media coverage."
