It's a beautiful day in Tampa and here are some random thoughts. Remember, unless you're near a Norman, Oklahoma Homeland store that the only way to get JR'S products is online at http://www.wweshop.com/Category/JimRoss.
Loved everything about WM28. The stadium, the look of it, perfect weather, amazing fans, and the total effort of everyone involved with the show.
It was an amazing experience and one that I will cherish forever.
Broadcasting with Michael Cole and The King was great. I thought both guys really had a stellar night.
I sincerely appreciated Michael Cole's handshake welcoming me to the announce table. Very classy.
Calling the epic, memorable HIAC match was one of my career highlights.
Its hard to name a more physical, compelling bout than HIAC as HHH and Undertaker brought amazing physicality and immense passion. They beat the heck out of each other and took us all on an unforgettable ride. A truly awesome performance.
Shawm Micahels contributions to the bout were huge. HBK is so gifted in any role he's in and Sunday was no exception. It was the best, guest ref work I can ever recall.
Live been blessed to be a part of many WrestleMania events but WM28 will always hold a special place in my heart.
WWE AXXESS was a blast. Every fan should experience AXXESS at least once and it gets better every year. The fans who attended Raw on Monday were amazing. One of the best, live audiences ever. Help make an outstanding RAW even better. Brock Lesnar's return to WWE is significant to say the least. I'm excited to see where the future takes the former WWE & UFC Champion. In mere minutes, Lesnar became a force to be dealt with in WWE. Interesting days certainly lie a head for the F5 machine. I covet my time in WWE's developmental program. Been here all week. Working with the enthusiastic, talented young athletes is so rewarding. Great things are on going on Dale Mabry in Tampa. Tonight is the FCW TV taping and I can't wait. Several FCW talents are either being introduced or on the cusp of such on a WWE roster. Expect to see several new personas in the coming weeks on RAW & Smackdown. Congrats to all who've earned an opportunity. Look for my contributions on WWE.com in the coming weeks where I'll be writing about a variety ig topics. Getting home to Oklahoma won't be easy this week as American Airlines had about 65 planes damaged this week at DFW due to softball size hail which resulted in a ton of cancelled flights. Travel is never easy but this week is more problematic than normal. Nonetheless I wouldn't trade the past several days in Florida for anything. Anxious to attend the OU Spring Game on April 14. A little touch of football before the pads are put away for the summer. Our products at AXXESS essentially sold out and I thank all that supported WWE and our efforts. Enjoyed dinner Wednesday night at Charley's Steakhouse in Tampa w/ friend Sean Grande and ESPN's Barry Melrose who are here to broadcast the Frozen Four on ESPN and on Westwood One Radio. I'll be doing my weekly hit on http://www.yahoosportsradio.com Saturday morning at 10:30 central time. Listen live online. Remember to say hello at the upcoming Cauliflower Alley Club function in Las Vegas on April 16-18. Go to http://www.caulifloeralleyclub.org for more info. CAC is truly a great organization. It's grilling season and time to stock up on JR'S products at http://www.wweshop.com/Category/JimRoss. We're close to 400,000 Twitter followers @JRsBBQ. Will soon be penning an article for WWE.com on my many broadcasting partners over the years. Can't forget Magnum TA who I worked with on the 1989 Flair-Steamboat, Chicago NWA TITLE bout. My pal Brad Nessler, who grew up w/ AWA Wrestling, had a blast at WM28. Ness is one of the great play by play voices on ESPN, ABC, and the NFL Network. Thanks for stopping by and I'll have another blog this weekend plus I'll try and address some of your Q&A's as well. Boomer Sooner! J.R.
