Jim Ross Talks About Possibly Doing Commentary For New Japan, More

As noted on Tuesday, Jim Ross spoke with the folks at Sporting News for a promotional interview for his MMA announcing debut this coming Friday night in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Below are highlights from the discussion.

On possibly doing commentary work for New Japan Pro Wrestling: “I’m very interested in doing special projects and that certainly would be on that list of a special project. And I think if they were serious about their marketing of their pay-per-views — and I guess their big show is January 4th — that if they were really serious about that event being a hit in the English-speaking countries, that I might be able to help them. I think their style is right down my alley. They’re physical, they’re intense, their wrestling is logical and I am a fan of it. But I wouldn’t want to do it in a TV studio somewhere and doing it as a voiceover. If I did it, I’d want to be in Tokyo.”

On possibly doing some college football commentary: “I would love to put my toe in the water on one of their Thursday night games, a college football game. I’m still selfish in my own desires that I want to watch every Oklahoma game as long as I’m healthy to travel and I’m feeling great. But I would love the opportunity to be a part of a Fox college broadcast on one of their Thursday night games and that way I get the best of both worlds. I could do the game, be a part of the broadcast team and then make my way to see the Sooners play on Saturday.”
