WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross recently spoke with Steve Muehlhausen of The Sporting News, to promote his MMA commentary debut on Friday night, and JR compared his MMA Battlegrounds broadcast partner Chael Sonnen to one of his former broadcast team partners, Paul Heyman.
“He [Sonnen] reminded me of Paul Heyman,” Ross said. “Paul was abrasive, quick-witted, had great product knowledge, really good timing, knew when to be serious, be a bad guy and when to be entertaining. I just thought it would work, but didn’t know if he would have any interest or any legal restrictions on what he can do. Luckily, he didn’t. I think I can help him from a broadcasting side of keeping the rug in the water and driving the train.”
