Jim Ross Blog: Thoughts On Being RAW GM, Hogan Turning 60, SSlam Moments
On the new WWE 2K14 video game: “The writing for the new, 2K Sports WWE video game to be released this fall is the best of any video game that I’ve ever worked on as the copy was spot on.”
On playing the General Manager role in WWE: “Can’t believe that some fans actually think that I’d like to be a TV show General Manager ala Raw or Smackdown. Sorry, but I’ve got no interest in either role nor has anyone ever considered such for me of which I’m aware. This role needs to go to deserving talents whose verbal skills merit the casting. I’m a Vickie Guerrero fan and am also anxious to see how Brad Maddox progresses. I helped Maddox with his announcing while in NXT and he’s a bright kid. Eddie Gilbert-ish as I’ve mentioned.”
On his all-time favorite WWE SummerSlam moment: “One of my all time favorite Summer Slam moments was doing WWE Radio of the 1994 Summer Slam with the wonderful, late Gorilla Monsoon from the first ever event ever held in the United Center in Chicago. As Gorilla said, “We both have the face for it.” I wonder if broadcasting WWE PPV’s on radio would work today?”
On Hulk Hogan’s 60th birthday today: “Happy birthday to Hulk Hogan as today he turns 60. Welcome to the club…it’s not so bad as 60 is the NEW 40. @HulkHogan vs. @ShawnMichaels at Summer Slam in 2005 was one of the great performances at any Summer Slam and FAR exceeded my expectations.”
