Jim Ross Discusses His Future At The Announce Table & When He Expects Jerry Lawler Back, More

Shares 0

Jim Ross has a new blog entry available on his official website. Below are some highlights:

-Still enjoying the opportunity to sit in for the King on Monday Night Raw with @MichaelCole. The three hour dynamic of doing live TV is daunting and unlike a PPV which has no official, commercial breaks. The amount of info that we are responsible to provide within the body of the show is extensive and requires ample preparation. 

-This I do know: one has to limit one's liquid intake early in the day to sit at ringside for over three hours as Mother Nature can be a cruel lady at times.

-The Nashville Raw ran smoothly for Cole and me at the announce table. Our two man chemistry is evolving nicely as I keep @Jerry Lawler's seat warm for his return which I assume will likely be sometime before the end of the year. I haven't heard an exact date as that decision will be left up completely to the medical people. I'm assuming that King will return and take his seat next to Cole and that JBL (@JCLayfield) will continue to work with Josh Mathews on Friday Night Smackdown but that's simply one man's observation. 

-Until then, I'm going to enjoy every week that I get the opportunity to broadcast and to maximize my minutes on WWE TV including this Monday in New Jersey which is always a hot, loyal, WWE crowd. 

-I'm planning on traveling to Atlanta for the Hell in a Cell pay per view before heading to Charlotte for RAW as both cities have played a big part in my career beginning with the Jim Crockett promotions days. 

-Plans are also being made for me to travel to England to likely work the Birmingham RAW TV broadcast and then participate in a WWE try out camp that begins the Wednesday after the two days of Birmingham television.

    How’s JR’s and HHH’s relationship?

  • Kleck

    RAW is so much more enjoyable to listen to while JR commentates in a way only JR can

    If Cole is a smart man, he'll take advantage of this time as well, and pick JR's brain, pay attention to JR's announcing, and learn to be a much better announcer than he currently is.

    Like I said before, Lawler was at his best when he was the heel announcer. He’s kind of boring and cheesy now. JR brings back that excitement that RAW has been missing.
