Former WWE and current AEW commentator Jim Ross has given his unique take on WrestleMania, likening the show to having two days of colonoscopies.
Speaking on the latest episode of his Grilling JR podcast, Ross had this to say on WWE’s biggest show of the year.
“It’s like having two days of colonoscopies. I know you have to do it once a year, every five years, but goddamn, everywhere you turn that’s all you hear. I hope it works out for them, a lot of good people booked, it will be another event that will be overanalyzed and the Twitter verse will chime in.”
Just in case you’re not aware, a colonoscopy is the medical term for having a camera shoved up your butt. Actually I have seen some WWE matches that feel like that.
Ross also recalled being asked to commentate on WrestleMania 27 just a month before the show, and it’s safe to say he didn’t particularly enjoy the experience.
“Feeling unwelcome or I’m at the wrong place at the wrong time. I had no joy from working WrestleMania 27, none. I didn’t phone s–t in, I worked hard based on what I had to work with but it’s hard to make [Jerry] Lawler and [Michael] Cole a [Terry] Funk, [Jack] Briscoe classic.
“When that show was over on Sunday and Monday, even though it was a big success, the stadium looked great, but it was just not fun. Bottom line is, of all the WrestleManias I got the privilege of working, this was probably one that I was nonplussed over. Not because of the event, because of my own personal situation.”
Well, we hope everyone enjoys the next two days of colonoscopies.
