JR Discusses Being A Part Of WrestleMania XXVIII: A New Career Highlight, Shaking Michael Cole’s Hand, More

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

[WrestleMania XXVIII] was an amazing experience and one that I will cherish forever.

Broadcasting with Michael Cole and The King was great. I thought both guys really had a stellar night.

I sincerely appreciated Michael Cole’s handshake welcoming me to the announce table. Very classy.

Calling the epic, memorable HIAC match was one of my career highlights.

Its hard to name a more physical, compelling bout than HIAC as HHH and Undertaker brought amazing physicality and immense passion. They beat the heck out of each other and took us all on an unforgettable ride. A truly awesome performance.

Shawn Michaels’ contributions to the bout were huge. HBK is so gifted in any role he’s in and Sunday was no exception. It was the best, guest ref work I can ever recall.

    That match was made better by JR being on the mic.

    its crazy how much JR on the commentary can add to a match…..i felt the only reason he was put on was because he was part of the era that was ending that night and as much as those 3 might not be seen again, JR quite possibly could be added to the list and make it 4 that we might not see again!

  • Michael

    Do you believe the whole "END TO AN ERA" included JR? Will that be the last time we see him calling a match again?

  • Andrew

    Cole was respectful to JR at mania fair play, but he should always have been in the first place

    • Matt Scott

      You know it was an angle last year, right?

  • Irish Noel

    JR said the other day that he was put on the match because The Undertaker and Triple H requested it.

  • PhilT81

    Undertaker, Triple H and HBK all wanted it – and each of them has enough stroke that just one would have been in enough. It also made logical sense as he was part of that era that was ending. It may well be the last time he commentates on WWE TV but I doubt it. I think that on the upcoming nostalgia show hell commentate on that – because I doubt they’ll get Jesse Ventura in and sadly Gorilla Monsoon is no longer with us and it’s a job that Bobby Heenan can no longer manage.

    It’s not even like they bring in Jim Ross to cover when Michael Cole can’t work because they have Josh Matthews established in that role now.
