JR's Blog: NEW, Ross Report Drops Later Today, RINGSIDE SHOW PPV on FITE, RAW/CHICAGO FEEDBACK
Posted: Mar 8th 2017 By: Jim Ross
It's a beautiful day in Norman, Oklahoma, the home of the Oklahoma Sooners where @BakerMayfield is still our Quarterback! A new, Ross Report Podcast drops later today featuring Mike Johnson of PWInsider and the great Shawn Michaels. This is an outstanding show thanks to my two guests and we cover a ton of material that you will enjoy. Pleae take a moment to leave us feedback and a 5 star rating at iTunes and we certinly appreciate it.
Our first ever PPV presentation will debut Wednesday on the FITE App for only $5.99 and it is the best of our three, Dallas House of Blues shows from Wrestlemania Texas. This is a fun show that offers special guests and plenty of infotainment. Give it a shot as it wil be available only 30 days on FITE.
Check out our new tees at www.prowrestlingtees.com/jimross. New designs were added this week.
Tickets are still available but getting scarce for our two, RINGSIDE with Jim Ross Shows, both matinees, at Plaza Live. Less than 50 VIP tickets are available for both Saturday and Sunday shows at www.ticketfly.com. General Admission tickets are only $25. Hope you can join us.
Solid show that accomplished the goal of creating awareness of the key, RAW Wrestlemania bouts.
Jericho-Owens-Joe was good business to start the show. Three, main event stars earning their pay for sure. Good stuff.
Taker/Reigns interaction was money. Loved the choke slam and so did the fans in the great, wrestling city of Chicago.
I'd likely put Reigns over in Orlando via cheating to gain an unfair advantage as it would facilitate Reigns leaving WM with immense heat and bragging rights to carry Roman farther down the road. That obviously sets up the eventual 'face turn which will make Roman Reigns the huge, fan favorite, face of the company talent that has been WWE's focus for a long while.
Embraced the physicality factored into the on going build of Lesnar vs Goldberg now for the Universal Title for Wrestlemania. The physicality was warranted and it worked plus @HeymanHustle was again a star on the mic and with his facials and body English.
Goldberg vs Lesnar closes the four hour show at Wrestlemania, right? They do if I'm booking.
Another great night for Neville who has become the cornerstone of the WWE Cruiserweight division. Neville and Austin Aries provided fans some excellent TV. Also, Rich Swann vs Neville was a terrific bout.
WWE could still do a more provocative job of enhancing the TV personas of the Cruiserweights who all have physical skills but many fans don't truly know who they are.
Thought that the women's title creative was a bit muddled in it's presentation. This lost me along the way, unfortunately. Nonetheless WWE is still providing these women great opportunities to continue to establish themselves. The "Ronda Rousey Factor" is still alive and well.
Excited to watch the ROH PPV this Friday night on the FITE App and host a live chat on the App while watching the event with many of you. Join me and hit me with your questions and comments. I'm expecting a strong show from ROH especially factoring in Bully Ray and the Hardy's. There is no reason that this should not be an awesome PPV event.
