– Jim Ross Comments On Former WWE Women’s Champion’s Recent Retirement & Chris Jericho vs. Kenny Omega
During a recent blog entry on his website, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross discussed various recent happenings in the world of Professional Wrestling. Below are the highlights:
On former WWE Women’s Champion Gail Kim’s retirement:
“Loved the Gail Kim presentation. She’s a timeless treasure for the biz and one of the best performers of any gender that I can recall seeing in my 40+ year career.
If she had not won, I was prepared to do some thing really stupid, but I’m grateful that the right call was made without overthinking it and making it ‘unpredictable’ because that’s the primary thing that most fans want.
To that I say, B.S. Most fans want great execution and logical booking and some things are much better being ‘predictable’ than not. That’s simply my two cents.”
On Chris Jericho vs. Kenny Omega:
“Just my take, but how any of us can complain about Jericho vs. Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12 in January of 2018 is a head scratcher. It was excellent booking, creative, and the two Winnipeg natives will rock the Tokyo Dome and sell tickets.
This is the best way for them to monetize this window of opportunity, without question. It’s been a long time since the Dome went clean on January 4 and this match should certainly help regarding that matter.
I read where the NJPW goals was to sell 30,000 for Wrestle Kingdom 12, which is a tremendous number, but the Dome’s capacity for baseball is 55,000 and obviously a bit more for wrestling.”
