– WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross recently spoke with WrestlingInc about a wide variety of topics including his upcoming schedule for this weekend, check out the highlight below:
Jim Ross on his upcoming schedule
“I’m part of the launch party for WrestleCon on Thursday with Ric Flair and Sting. And Matt Striker, the Eddie Haskell or wrestling broadcasters, is going to do a Q&A, about 90-minute or so Q&A, I think, on Thursday with a couple of guys and myself. I’ve got a Friday morning gig with [Jerry] Lawler at WrestleCon. And Saturday and Sunday, I have my shows, which I’m really focusing on.
“I’ve made some changes on them. I’ve got big Tyrus, aka or formerly known as, I guess I should say, Brodus Clay, of Fox News now, God, I love this big guy – he’s very talented, he’s going to be our MC both days. That should be really fun. Saturday, I’ve got my writing partner, the acclaimed novelist, Paul O’Brien, will join Tony Schiavone and I, and we’re going to ostensibly start talking about The Monday Night Wars and take Q&As of whatever they are, whatever is on your mind if you’re in the audience. And Tony and I have never been on stage before to talk about The Monday Night Wars and our roles in those. And, of course, we both have experiences with Jim Crockett Promotions and Tony is one of my good friends and one of the few guys you maintain a friendship with in the wrestling business over a long period of time. It’s a shame to say that and it’s not me being, ‘poor me’. Maybe that’s the way life is in general.
“Then, on Sunday, I’m going to be joined by two great podcasters in Jim Cornette and Bruce Prichard and we’re going to have the unauthorized WrestleMania pregame show. All of us have been on WrestleMania, all of us have helped write WrestleMania, produced, performed, so it’s going to be a unique panel. So we’re going to talk about WrestleMania and I’m sure we’re going to talk about NXT the night before, the Hall Of Fame a little bit, whatever is on the audience’s minds, so really two different shows, two different panels, for lack of a better term, a lot of entertainment content. Tickets start at $25 and are available at Ticketfly. So we’re really excited about changing the format up, the guests that we have. And everybody bring something and it should be two really good shows to see. VIP meet and greets are at noon to two. The show starts at 2:30 and we’ll be out of there around 4. And by leaving around 4 o’clock, where we are located, at Plaza LIVE, you are very quick to get to WrestleMania on Sunday. It’s easy to get to the NXT on Saturday. There is a lot of time to do what you need to do after our shows in the afternoons, the matinees. So it should be fun, we’re looking forward to it, it should be a fun time. That whole event is amazing and I guess all of us should thank WWE for bringing people to town because we all got the chance to pick some of their fruit.”
