Jim Ross Q&A: Integrating Comedy with Wrestling, His Own Cooking Show, Raw Ending

Posted by Steve Carrier on Tuesday, December 10th, 2013


WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his Q&A section of JrsBarBq.com. Here are some questions that he answered.

Doing his own cooking show: A reality show involving JR and food/sports is being pitched I’m told.

Thoughts on the last 15-20 minutes of Monday’s Raw: As I said last night on Twitter @JRsBBQ, I enjoyed it. I’ll have more on today’s blog. You should follow me on Twitter….it’s free.

You mentioned in a recent Q&A about Zac Ryder the idea of him being too comedic at times. How you go about integrating comedy with wrestling on people like Ryder, Santino, Tons of Funk, etc. provide without them being stuck in the lower-mid card? Firstly, I’m a Ryder fan. He’s a hard working kid who loves the business and hopefully he gets bumped up soon. I simply think that him being cast as a ‘gimmick’ back in the day did him no significant favors. I am not against comedy if it is good and particularly if it is organic and not contrived. But even comedic figures have to eventually find their way into a personal issue unless they are content to be mid carders.

EXCLUSIVE: Should the WWE really push so many of it’s Big Men?
