WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross updated his blog at JRsBarBQ.com on Sunday evening. Below are some of the highlights.
On his upcoming Ross Report podcasts:
“Talking to both Eric Bischoff and Mike Tenay Monday night for future Ross Report podcasts and if you have questions hit me at Twitter @JRsBBQ and please use #AskJimRoss. Thanks.
“My special gust this week on The Ross Report will be Lucha Underground co-Executive Producer Chris DeJoseph who I worked with back in the day at WWE when he was ‘Big Dick Johnson.’ A new The Ross Report Podcast drops every Tuesday night at 9 PM ET on podcastone.com, iTunes and right here on the homepage of our site.”
On the passing of Muhammad Ali:
“The passing last week of Muhammad Ali at the age of 74 took me back to 1985 when I had a some personal and memorable experiences with “The Greatest.” Bill Watts booked Ali to be in JYD replacement The Sandman’s corner in a NOLA Super Dome Mid South Wrestling bout vs Jake Roberts who had John Nord in his corner. To build up this attraction, we went to Los Angeles to tape a series of vignettes with the Champ at his home there. After finishing our work Muhammad took us on a quick tour of his home specifically his ‘attic’ which was where much of Ali’s memorabilia was randomly stored. I wandered around talking to Ali and admiring all the title belts plus gifts from an amazing array of world leaders and religious figures. Many of these priceless items were in cardboard boxes and stored, to put it mildly, very causally in these containers. I saw one box that had a piece of gold cloth hanging from it and I reached down to see what it was and I discovered that it was a gold jumpsuit.”
The above quote is just a small portion of what JR wrote about the late, great Muhammad Ali. To read his complete blog on Ali, visit his official website at JRsBarBQ.com.
