Jim Ross On Disappointing Run With Jesse Ventura, WWE Returns To Rockford, Tryouts

- Jim Ross has an article on WWE.com about working with Jim Cornette and Jesse Ventura. In the article, JR admits that his partnership with "The Body" wasn't as successful as he had hoped.

"I was hopeful that Jesse and I could form a great broadcasting team and that we could somehow approach the magic that Ventura had with Vince McMahon and the late Gorilla Monsoon in The Body's WWE years, but that did not happen, at least in my opinion," wrote Ross. "It wasn't that we were horrible. We certainly weren't, but I expected so much more from our ringside partnership. Perhaps my expectations were too high or I simply wasn't a good fit with Jesse. Hopefully, those that remember our WCW run look back upon those broadcasts more fondly than do I. Maybe I'm being too critical."
