Jim Ross Q&A: Thoughts On Zack Ryder, His Black Cowboy Hat, Mick Foley

The following are highlights of a new Q&A update from WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross:

On Zack Ryder’s new YouTube show: “I have not but if he’s getting more serious then I feel that ‘s a good thing. Ryder is a good hand who I think still has a bright future but the time is now.”

On WWE buying out companies and acquiring their libraries: “The theory of buying them rather than beating them is inaccurate. The libraries were from companies that were already defunct. We were laying the foundation to build a WWE Network someday. Obtaining content was a key. Seems like the vision worked out well based on my experience with the WWE Network.”

On his trademark black cowboy hat: “I wasn’t crazy at first about the black hat but over the years I feel incomplete without it. It was another Vince McMahon good idea.”

On teaming up with Mick Foley for a live show: “I’m sure at some point we will play San Francisco or the Bay Area. Mick and I have casually discussed teaming up for a show or two down the road. TBD.”
