Jim Ross Blog: Big GFW Announcement, Mayweather/Pacquiao, Hogan/WM32
The following are highlights of a new Jim Ross blog:
On Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao: “The Mayweather-Pacquiao fight was under whelming to say the least. The post match press conference, yes I watched it until well after 2 a.m. Oklahoma time, was even more of an unhinged circus with excuses, outlandish statements and fighters endangering their health as in breaking their arms patting themselves on the back. Manny hallucinated that he thought he won the fight while Floyd gave us an update on his bank account. The fight itself was pedestrian to say the least and never truly created any fire or passion to engage the rich and famous fans there to be seen and obviously not to be heard. Legit fight fans were priced out of the equation but provided TMZ, Entertainment Tonight, etc with plenty of footage and sound bytes to last a week or more.”
On big GFW announcements this week: “Big announcements are coming this week from Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling group about their upcoming tapings to be held at the Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas this summer. I think that many wrestling fans will be pleasantly surprised at the GFW talent roster and will embrace the travel packages.”
On Hulk Hogan wrestling at WrestleMania 32: “Read where Hulk Hogan said that he was going to wrestle at WM32 in Arlington, Texas. Don’t know if that’s wishful thinking or something that has been internally confirmed. If Hogan is going to have ‘one more match,” WM32 would be the place to do it. It would be a nice, nostalgic, special attraction type of bout that I’m sure many fans would be curious to see.”
