Jim Ross Update: Is he planning to do a shoot interview?

jim rossJim Ross does get offers to do shoot interview videos, as you might expect, given his years in the business, and the access to the seat of power that he has had for more than three decades.

So, is he going to do a shoot?

The short answer, according to a blog he posted yesterday: no.

“I am NOT considering doing any shoot interviews for DVD release for a variety of reasons. Firstly, I cover many of the topics one would be asked in these productions in RINGSIDE: An Evening with Jim Ross shows. Secondly, I don’t care to address ‘dirt oriented’ questions that can embarrass people’s families, etc. Lastly, the fees offered are generally low and not worth the time invested to do them,” Ross wrote.

Ross is obviously a few pay grades above the level of talents you normally see featured in these shoots, so that one makes sense.


Podcast One update: Ross said yesterday that his Podcast One weekly show will debut in mid-February.

“I do plan on it being very interactive as I will be taking listener’s calls. We will also have a variety of guests. Plus, I will offer my personal analysis/take on some TV wrestling shows that I watch. Should give the internet wrestling community (IWC) plenty of cannon fodder. :)”
