Ross Report Podcast News, Fast Lane Main Event, BigEventNY, Maryland Championship Wrestling, FITE App, Voice Versus, Joe vs Sami

We hope that you are having a productive week and are enjoying life. Great weather in Oklahoma with temps getting into the upper 70's today!  Really enjoyed talking to @RoderickStrong and @RealBrookeAdams on our latest Ross Report Podcast that you can hear for free at, iTunes and right her on the site's homepage.  Subscribe for FREE at iTunes and never miss a show plus it helps us with our numbers and ad sales.

Hoping to see many fans on a busy and anticipated first weekend of March. Friday March 4 I'll join many others in Newburgh, New York for Northeast Wresting mega card while Saturday March 5 I will join approximately 70 others at the BigEventNY convention at the LaGuardia Plaza Hotel in NYC.  Then on Sunday afternoon March 6 @JerryLawler, Booker T and I will join many others in Joppa, MD for Maryland Championship Wrestling super show. Looking forward to all the meet and greets with some terrific fans. I'd love to see you, too.

Tickets to our three, RINGSIDE with Jim Ross & Friends shows at the House of Blues in Dallas are selling briskly at @HOBDallas is predicting that all three shows will be sold out come WrestleMania Texas weekend. Hope to see you there.

The FITE TV App will be your spot to enjoy the sold out Ring of Honor PPV that will celebrate their 14th anniversary with a huge show from Las Vegas on Friday night February 26.

Speaking of Vegas,  I will be there next week for some boxing business and to record 'Schiavello Versus" for AXSTV.  More info coming soon.

Are you as curious as I am about what will go down Sunday at WWE Fast Lane between Lesnar-Reigns-Ambrose? Could the eventual winner Sunday still retain the title opportunity at the April 3 Wrestlemania Texas event? Stranger things have happened. I do expect Roman Reigns to be booed which isn't a bad response unless one is being positioned to be the WWE's top, fan favorite. I only hope that we see some 'off speed pitches' creatively Sunday and that we avoid a Triple Threat Match Main event at WrestleMania Texas.

Liked the conclusion of the Samoa Joe vs Sami Zayn main event on NXT Wednesday night. Enjoyed the show from start to finish and appreciate the broadcasters focusing their audio on what I was seeing on my TV set. Logical, controversy while going off the air isn't a bad thing. Arguably the best match on WWE TV this week.

Watching @BellatorMMA on @Spike to see Ken Shamrock vs Royce Gracie and Kimbo Slice fight DaDa 5000 both of which are considered special attraction matches and neither of which will likely won't go the distance. My pal Sean Grande has the call on Spike tonight. It's a human demolition derby of a fight card because of the older guys on the show but it's must see TV for me.

Happy that Tammy Stych is out of the hospital and on her road to recovering. @WWEHOFerSunny may be a Ross Report podcast guest sooner than later. Her new, autobiography is available now, too.

Congrats to @steveaustinBSR for his 300th podcast this week on It was Steve who sold me on doing the Ross Report Podcast also at and we are now over 100 shows n the can.

Elated to hear that Bret Hart's cancer surgery that saw his prostrate removed has apparently solved his problem. Having experienced prostrate surgery last summer I can tell you that surgery is significant and takes time to hear but it certainly improves one's quality of life.

Remember that my first AXSTV New Japan Pro Wrestling show with @JoshLBarnett will debut Friday night March 4. 

What would you think about a nationally syndicated Jim Ross Show on weekly radio?

The UR Fight iPPV coming to Phoenix on Sunday March 20 has entered my radar. Kurt Angle vs Rey Mysterio, Ken Shamrock vs Dan Severn MMA fight, Chael Sonnen vs Michael Bisping in a Grappling match and a Roy Jones, Jr fight against a 'fan' is intriguing if nothing else.

Hope that you 'Like Us' on Facebook at JimRossBBQ.

A Jim Ross show similar to Taz’s show would be amazing. Taz’s daily radio show is the best “wrestling show” out there. Jim Ross could be the best show if he had the production value and daily radio time that Taz has. More show, less promoting of sponsors would be ideal. But, I get it. Have to shout out to the sponsors...just feels overdone sometimes. Otherwise, I love the Ross Report...just wish we had more of your wrestling thoughts than just the 10 minutes of the start of the show. Interviews are cool, but we tune in to hear Jim Ross...I wouldn't mind listening to him talk wrestling for an hour and a half. Just my opinion.
