WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what JR said about:
Chris Jericho's New ABC Game Show: "Emailer...Yes I watched ABC's Downfall with Chris Jericho and thought that the premise of the game show was unique and that Chris did a super job hosting the festivities. From what I hear ABC was pleased with the first episode although they hope that the ratings will increase next week and that they can hold more of the audience from the lead in program. Hopefully the broadcast creates enough of a buzz to up the ratings next Tuesday night as Downfall once again leads in to WWE's NXT on Syfy. Jericho's talents go well beyond the squared circle and it seems good for WWE that one of their biggest stars is doing well outside the envelope, so to speak."
Returning to Broadcasting: "Emailer...Of course I miss broadcasting. One can't do something that they loved doing for parts of four decades and then not miss it. I'm hopeful that Oklahoma University starts their own network some day and that I might be considered to be a part of it. I 'never say never' about broadcasting ever again on WWE TV but the chance of that is, as Gorilla Monsoon would say, "Highly Unlikely" especially on a weekly basis. However, I can see being a part of a special project occasionally. Stranger things have happened in the biz and if WWE ever needed me back at my old role they know that I'm ready to rock. But I do enjoy my new, less travel intensive role I assure you."
