In his latest blog post, Jim Ross strongly hinted that he would jump at the chance to call the upcoming Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe dream match at the upcoming Great Balls Of Fire pay-per-view.
@SamoaJoe getting his long awaited bout with Brock Lesnar is a stellar booking IMO and one that I endorsed at our RINGSIDE Show the night before WM31 in San Jose when Joe was my guest at our RINGSIDE Show. Some naysayers are already questioning this booking which is a head scratcher as some feel that Joe is being positioned for merely a one off against Lesnar which, if true, is not the end of the world by the way for anyone involved. I say that the Lesnar-Joe match will receive plenty of talk/hype over the next several weeks and that the two, physically demanding athletes will provide us a tremendous one on one main event in Dallas.
I am personally looking forward to this match as much as any match I can recall this year and will tell you that it is an announcer’s dream to be privileged to call a bout like this.
Yep, I’m fishing here.
The Lesnar vs. Joe match would be their first-ever encounter and, according to reports from the Wrestling Observer newsletter, is considered to be a “one and done” feud because Lesnar will move on to Braun Strowman at SummerSlam. Ross recently signed a two-year deal with the company so it would not shock me if he was brought in to call this match. He is already scheduled to call the upcoming Mae Young Classic tournament on the WWE Network and he, alongside Nigel McGuinness, is the voice of the new WWE UK brand.
On his new podcast, Ross has The Fight Network’s John Pollock on as his guest to talk about Extreme Rules, Finn Balor’s performance at Extreme Rules, Alexa Bliss’ heel personality, Neville vs. Austin Aries and more. Click here to read the blog.
