Jim Ross joined Sports Illustrated’s “Hot Clicks Podcast” to discuss this Monday’s 1,000th episode of RAW. During the podcast, he spoke about his role for Monday’s show.
“It’s kind of like a baseball player going to the All Star game in Kansas City,” Ross said. “I’m just kind of waiting to see what the manager puts on the lineup card. I know I’m on the roster, I know I’m figured to do something, I’m just waiting to see where my name is penciled in. With an old guy like me who’s been around the horn — been weathered — there’s nothing that can be assigned that I probably haven’t already done.
“In a perfect world I’d love to call a match, but that’s not my call. But I’m ready to play, whatever they want me to do, I’m ready to roll.”
