The following are highlights from a new Jim Ross blog:
On a “RINGSIDE” show in Toronto: “We’re doing another RINGSIDE show in Toronto on Friday May 9 at the Danforth Music Hall and tickets for the show go on sale THIS TUESDAY in Toronto at the box office of the Music Hall and via ticketmaster.ca. It’s one show only and it’s the night before the ROH-New Japan show in TO. VIP Meet and Greet tickets will go fast and are limited. We will h ave the meet and Greet before the show on the Friday May 9 event.”
On some upcoming “Ross Report” podcast guests: “Thanks for the great feedback on this week’s Ross Report with Lita aka Amy Dumas. Next week my podcast guest will be DDP Diamond Dallas Page who I suspect will induct Jake Roberts at the 2014 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony the night before WM30. That’s not a conformation but my personal assumption. Without question DDP impacted the lives of both Jake and Scott Hall in a major, life saving way.”
“Great lineup of guests coming to the Ross Report podcast via @PodcastOne including, the aforementioned Robert Flores, Jim Cornette, Gail Kim, Shawn Michaels, Bill Goldberg, ESPN’s Michelle Beadle and Eric Bischoff, among others.”
On WWE inviting him to the WWE Hall Of Fame: “WWE has invited me to attend the WWE Hall of Fame next Saturday night in New Orleans. I’m going to endeavor to attend. Grat night for some very deserving performers.”
On reaction to him putting over Michael Cole recently: “Some seemed surprised that I applauded @MichaelCole work in WWE recently on the Q&A’s here. Cole is without question the hardest working on air talent in WWE and his job has become so multi faceted that it exceeds the boundaries of being a play by play man. I’m not even sure that WWE calls it play by play any longer but nonetheless Michael does a helluva job steering a diverse ship on 5 hours of prime time TV for WWE.”
