In tomorrow's episode #283 of The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling, Jim Ross responds to critics of his New Japan Pro Wrestling G1 Special commentary by simply explaining the art of live television. Speaking with Chad and John Poz, JR details the entire week of events leading up to the two night spectacular and his disappointment with the entire social media backlash to his mistakes made during the live broadcast.

"I wish we did not have those errors but I can tell you this. When I saw the Briscoe's on Sunday I apologized to both of them for screwing that up and I took complete responsibility for it even though I got bad information (you know) I own it. It is my deal and so I apologized to those guys because I have great respect for their work and I always have so I wish we had not done that. I don't live this product. Kevin Kelly and Don Callis are there, they live it all the time and they were there in the building doing some stuff but I think that people will see that our second show was much more cleaner and much smoother than was our first show. Of course the second show also was highlighted by the United States title tournament but I thought that the final match with Omega and Ishii was absolutely tremendous. The Young Bucks had a real good match on that second night with Roppongi Vice and it ended up being Roppongi Vice's apparent last match as a team. I was very and really happy that I had the chance to do two live shows and not in voice overs but actually sitting in the arena, sitting at ringside and being able to do what I enjoy doing more than anything or any other phase of the wrestling business and that is do live commentary."
