Recently on The Ross Report, 'Good Ol' J.R.' Jim Ross welcomed former WWE Superstar JTG to the program. During the podcast, JTG shared his thoughts on Ryback's comments on equal pay for babyfaces and heels. JTG said that Zack Ryder was the first WWE Superstar to reach out to him after his first book was published. Also, JTG had some high praise for Aaron Haddad, the former Damien Sandow.
"That's tricky. That's a tricky topic because, to be honest, I don't think I should get as much [pay] as Big Show. Definitely not. He's a draw. He draws a crowd. Same thing with Chris Jericho. But I think if the talent's on the same level as you, and you lose and he gets paid more than you, I don't think there should be a big difference [in pay]."
According to JTG, 'The Long Island Broski' was the first WWE performer to congratulate him following the release of his first book.
"The first person that called me and told me that they loved it, my first book, was Zack Ryder. He read it on a flight going home. He text me right away. He said, 'bro, I read your book. Hilarious! Good stuff!' And he asked me, like a lot of the Superstars I didn't name, but I left a lot of hints, but he wanted to reconfirm. He was like, 'so, was this The Big Show? Who was this?' And we had a talk, but he loved the book."
Of all of the performers released from WWE on Black Friday 2016, JTG believes that Sandow will be the breakout star of the group.
"I believe Sandow is going to go [far]. He loves this business. I see him going to TNA or ROH to further his career. And, like, [in] wrestling, you never say never. He might be back [in WWE]."
In addition to these topics, JTG discussed whether there are different rules for black and white performers in WWE, his relationship with Vince McMahon, and much more on this edition of 'Slobberknocker Audio'.
