Source: WWE- Jim Ross has a new in-depth article up on WWE.com, wondering if former WCW announcer Tony Schiavone was the most underrated play-by-play man of all-time. Here's part of what Ross wrote:
"In the early years of our relationship, I'd rank Tony right there with the best play-by-play talents in the business. However, as the years went on and the political scene in WCW became more tumultuous and stressful, the lifelong baseball fan seemingly hit the wall and the genre of pro wrestling did not appear to be as much fun for him as it was back in the day. Until one has been in those shoes, one can't imagine the stress of doing live TV in that type of environment.
"Tony will likely always be remembered as steering the unpredictable ship of Monday Nitro as it earned massive TV ratings during the 'Monday Night Wars.' I will best remember him as my 'roomy' and fellow sports enthusiast who I truly enjoyed working with... Working alongside Tony Schiavone was pivotal in my growth as a broadcaster."
