Jim Ross Blog: Undertaker Retiring, Bad Wrestlers Acting, and More

Jim Ross is back with another blog, here are some highlights.

If he would like to be RAW or SmackDown GM: “No, thanks. Anoint someone who needs the TV time in hopes of building for the future. The role needs to be tweaked in my view and now is a good time to do so.”

If Undertaker has retired: “Has Undertaker retired? O.K., let’s think about this one. IF Taker had retired, wouldn’t one think that WWE would memorialize that occasion in a HUGE way? Come on folks, WWE is an entertainment company and when one of the biggest stars in history decides to call it a day, I think I can safely say, that we will all know. So the answer is ‘No’ the Undertaker has not retired and ‘No’ I don’t know when he’s returning and ‘No’ I don’t think that he will EVER lose at a WrestleMania. (Haven’t heard so many NO’s since my senior prom.)”

One of his pet peeves: “Wrestlers who can’t act but attempt to do so on wrestling shows. When in doubt simply be yourself. For the record, I’ve been told that my acting skills suck and that would be an accurate statement. Another personal annoyance on TV wrestling is ‘faux’ laughter. It’s an eye rolling, channel changer.”

    I see what you are saying Devil_Rising. But there is one huge difference between Undertaker and Flair/Hogan, and that is one of them still has their head on straight while the other two have been riding their legacy and milking it for everything it’s worth while still managing to make themselves look like nutty grandpas trying to be hip with the kids.

    Undertaker being my favorite wrestler of all time, I DO however feel he should retired. 20-0 is enough. I clearly remember him saying back when he was the American Bad Ass, that he didn’t want to be someone like Ric Flair or Hogan, who hung around too long. He said he didn’t want to still be out there when he looks like a shadow of his former self. And while I HATE that he shaved his head (still really dumb move), while he did look pretty good at this last WM….he still is getting pretty damn close to looking like a “shadow”.

    And AS a longtime fan of his, I don’t want to see that. I think it’s time for him to hang it up. For no other reason than simply to preserve his legacy as is…and not pull a Flair, Hogan, Funk type deal where he just keeps going on and on…….

    Jim Ross for GM, you bet. I think almost everyone loves this guy and even if you don’t you have to respect him, he is the best at what he does.
