Jim Ross Reveals Why Him & Lita Re-Called 16 Mae Young Classic Matches

Jim Ross

During a recent edition of The Ross Report podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross noted that him and fellow Hall of Famer Lita had to re-call 16 Mae Young Classic tournament matches this week. Below is the reason explained by JR:

“I felt like we did a better job. The job wasn’t bad the first go-around, but the creative change, the things that we were talking about were planned and now they had been tweaked. That’s entertainment, that’s the business. Anytime you get a chance to do the rewrite, you’re gonna do the rewrite. Always make it better, always make it better.

I like the fact that it’s a single-elimination tournament, the winners advance, the losers go home. Therefore it is an episodic production, so it goes from chapter one to chapter two, that kind of thing. So if Lita and I do our job, which we really tried hard to do, we’ll give you enough background on these ladies that you’ll care about them enough to want to watch them participate in this tournament and see if they have to survive or if they have to go home.”
