9. Jim Ross Reveals Which Match He Would Have Saved For WrestleMania

During a recent appearance on The Steve Austin Show podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross discussed with fellow Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin which match he would have saved for WrestleMania. Below is what JR said:

“If I was booking WWE or if I had influence on the booking of WWE, or whatever, my WrestleMania main event would be Joe and Brock and I would build it and by the time we got there, people would be going crazy to see it. For a guy like me at my stage of life, that’s the fountain of youth because that’s back to old school, two tough, legit tough SOBs that aren’t out there playing a role of a pro wrestler, locking up like two invalids. Locking up like two men, like two athletes of any gender.”

JR and Austin then talked about a possible match between Braun Strowman and Brock Lesnar. Below is what both WWF Legends had to say about this:

Jim Ross: “I know that somewhere down the road it’s Strowman and Lesnar. That’s foolproof, right? And I’d probably save that till WrestleMania. I know at one point, they talked about doing it at SummerSlam. I’m curious as tow what they would get out of that match, and how athletic the big boy would be, and how Brock would be. There’s a two-way street here.”

Steve Austin: “I don’t want Braun to be too athletic and start doing stuff that is out of his wheelhouse. No, no, no, I mean stick with the ground game! Don’t need to jump off s***!”
