- Jim Ross has posted a new Q&A on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights…
On calling the legendary Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat matches: "It was a honor to call them back when play by play was in fashion. Working w/ Bob Caudle was a privilege. Flair & Steamboat were....legendary. I was at right place at right time."
On if he feels Tito Santana is underrated: "Tito was a great in ring talent. I don't know who has underrated him. He was a star."
On Jeff Jarrett leaving TNA: "I'm not connected to TNA or Jarrett or to what their relationship together was or has been lately. I don't know what his departure means to TNA. TNA has many fixable issues. I wish Jeff and his family well."
On a dream match at WrestleMania between Shawn Michaels and Sting: "At the right place at the right time it would have been terrific. A main event. The ship's sailed on that one or so I think."
On the War Games concept being used by WWE: "Highly unlikely. I don't see it happening. It wasn't a WWE creation and the blood is a no-no."
On Drew McIntyre's future in WWE: "It's all about the creative and the production and execution of such. Any one can be made to be relevant in the fictional world of pro wrestling."
On the importance of Steve Austin during the Attitude Era: "In the Attitude Era, it was Stone Cold who was the straw that stirred the drink. But he was surrounded by some great talents as well."
On Brock Lesnar vs. Batista in 2014: "If both are around with enough TV availabilities I'd say it's possible. It would be a nice attraction."
On if the Hardy Boys would ever return to WWE: "I'd say never say never but I'd also guess it would likely be a long shot. Sometimes long shots come through."
