Jim Ross Blogs: TNA iMPACT!, PG Rating, Flair, More!


Recommended Posts

Jim Ross has a new blog entry up, here are the highlights…


On Fans Emailing WWE About JR: I saw on line where some fans want to hit WWE with E-mails on my behalf. I implore fans to please NOT do such as it just becomes a nuisance and it will do no good whatsoever. I do not endorse such a protest and I have to say that I am happy, healthy, and doing great. I have nothing to #@$#@ and moan about. My mindset to continue broadcasting hasn't changed but time will tell if that phase of my life is truly done or not. I always wanted to go out on my terms if possible and not have someone dictate when I was done. Perhaps that can still happen at a different place and in another genre.


On TNA To Thursdays: O.K....a fan pointed out that he predicted that TNA would not last on Monday night and that I thought that they had a fighting chance. I was assuming that TNA would produce a more compelling TV product too so I assume I was wrong on two fronts. Shame on me. I remain for all wrestling companies on TV, WWE, TNA, and ROH to do well. Again, the putting someone out of business mantra is antiquated and essentially stupid.


On WWE PG: Yes...I do believe that WWE will be PG rated for the long haul. It is much more advertiser and family friendly which simply makes common and business sense. If fans complain about creative it rarely has any thing to do with the PG rating or whatever as it usually pertains to the creative itself being lame or poorly executed. Bad humor is bad humor. Bad acting is bad acting and matches that make no logical sense happening still won't make any sense no matter the TV rating.


On The Old Monday Night War: Yes...when WCW was kicking WWE's ass 83 weeks in a row we knew that many weeks we had the better show but the scoreboard told a different story. No one in WWE gave up I can assure you and we knew that our foundation and talent base, being younger, would be fine in the long haul . We were right on that one and WCW died and was purchased for a song. One can't quit the game when faced with adversity no matter if it's job related or a health issue.


On Ric Flair Wrestling: No...I do not have an issue with Ric Flair wrestling but I do think that Ric should be wrestling perhaps 2-3 times per year and likely never on free TV. That's just my opinion. Flair adds much more to any TV show when he is talking or at ringside. I do not have an issue with Ric performing after his ballyhooed retirement from WWE at WM24. Pro wrestling retirements rarely last...just do the math...and people need to earn a living.
