Our podcast business is growing weekly and we have you to thank for that.

Greetings to all on Vince McMahon's 70th birthday! I appreciate all my days in WWE even though some were brighter days than others, like any other job, but the 21 years I was there working with Vince were always eventful and, along with Cowboy Bill Watts, Vince taught me the most of anyone in the business. We never always agreed on pro wrestling philosophies but the same can be said of the Cowboy and me. That merely means we both had strong opinions as there are always multiple, right ways to positively execute something in a pro wrestling match.

Thanks to all those that helped us sell out the DC Improv RINGSIDE Show this Wednesday night. Saturday night RINGSIDE w/ Jim Ross moves to NYC's Gramercy Theater with an 8 pm show that has VIP and General Admission tickets still available at the box office and via www.ticketmaster.com.

Our new Ross Report podcast is alive and well here on the homepage of our site, at podcastone.com and at iTunes where you can subscribe for FREE and never miss a show. We have TWO guests, authors Paul O'Brien and Brian Solomon who each have much to say about their outstanding books and their wrestling fandom. Paul has written the brilliant 'Blood Red Turns Dollar Green' trilogy of novels that are absolutely amazing.

Greetings from a steamy, Oklahoma hoping that everyone is having a great day. OUr new podcast with @TheRealAlSnow is getting amazing feedback and the two hour show is funny, informative and insightful with something for everyone.

Here's a few tings that are on my radar:

Good to be back in Oklahoma after a wonderful three nights and four days in Charlotte at the NWA Legends Fan Fest. It was a fun time where I got to meet some great fans and renewed friendships with many of the folks from within the biz that I had not seen in years. The film that I narrated, Mid Atlantic Memories, is available on DVD by going to www.nwalegends.com and I highly recommend it to all fans no matter where you live.

What a week coming up! Will head to Charlotte for the NWA Legends Fan Fest and will do our RINGSIDE w/ Jim Ross Show there on Thursday night at the Hilton University Place at 9 pm right after the debut of the outstanding film, Mid Atlantic Memories of which I narrated.  Check out www.nwalegends.com for all the info. Also, this week, Wednesday to be exact, tickets go on sale for RINGSIDE Shows in Knoxville, Thursday Sept 10, and Houston, Sunday September 20.
