    I thought Mania was very good. I just think it’s too damned long.

    Can’t stand Lars Sullivan. I still think he looks like Snitsky.

    WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross, who recently signed with All Elite Wrestling, appeared on WFAN Radio in New York City earlier today and said AEW will have a weekly two-hour live TV show that premieres in October.

    JR did not reveal the timeslot or the name for the AEW TV show, and he refused to elaborate on what network will carry the program. Ross did say the AEW TV show will air on a major network that we all have access to.

    "[AEW] is overwhelming for me," Ross said. "To be 67 years old and be anointed the voice of a brand that's gonna be debuting in October on national television on a major cable network, which can't be named now. When people hear what network we're going on, they're gonna be doubly excited. It's a network we can all find."

    Ross also said AEW is going for a more athletic presentation compared to what we see on TV from other promotions these days.

    "I think what they're shooting for is a more athletic presentation," JR revealed. "It will hopefully be less eye rolling than the sophomore drama class trying to convince you in a 10 minute promo of anything they're saying. It's too long. Our audience can't handle that."

    As confirmed, Ross signed a three-year deal with AEW and will make his commentary debut at Double Or Nothing on May 25, but he will also serve as a Senior Adviser to the company. His contract was called "the most lucrative deal in pro wrestling commentary history" in the AEW press release.

    The rumor is it will be on TNT. Holy crap!


    I hope the “sports feel” means we are not going to have any stupid Joey Ryan dick ****. I hate his schtick.

    Jesse Ventura isn't doing a whole lot these days. The whole Governor of Minnesota thing didn't turn out to be great for his marketing. I say put him back in the booth!

    Oh boy, that would be great for comedy.

    But no team was greater than Ross and Lawler. NONE.

    I always thought Bobby Heenan was in a class by himself as a color commentator. I grew up watching the old AWA and Heenan was a manager (and sometimes wrestler) for that promotion and he was awesome. He also ran the schemes (feuds, character flips, etc.).

    I remember those days, later 70's when we got TBS or another station, Wahoo McDaniel, Iron Sheik, Mr. Wrestler II, Great Kubuki and most of the wrestlers would do their own promo's before the match and it was awesome.

    I think it was either Saturday or Sunday and then my cousins and I will do matches like them, no broken bones, but we did get hurt. It was our weekend treat. Their mom would get pissed when we got hurt, we did not have cable on our side of the river yet so my parents take me over there. She patched us up and we are at it again.
