LISTEN: Jim Ross lobbied to call Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe match, says “Cody needs this match” with Okada

Thanks to our friends at Sirius XM’s Busted Open Radio for the following:

WWE HOF Announcer Jim Ross joined Busted Open with Dave Lagreca and Larry Dallas today to talk about NJPW G1 Special in USA and more.

He commented on the Kazuchika Okada vs. Cody Rhodes as the main event of Day 1 of the NJPW G1 Special in USA saying “Cody needs this match.” He also would go on to talk about the year Okada is having, recalling the 3 match series he called in ’89 of Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat, saying “I’m not gonna blow that rivalry out of the water, but to discount what Okada’s done with a variety of opponents, with different styles, different build-ups would be a travesty.”

He also commented on Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe for the WWE Universal Championship at WWE Great Balls of Fire, saying he thinks it will be a “classic.” He also revealed he lobbied to call the match at the upcoming PPV.
