Bischoff attempts to revive the Monday Night Wars

"Where we're living out around quite a bit here but eventually it's an ask. The BISCHOFF IS GONNA make a bold move and he's GonNa put. WCW programming head to head on Monday night of against Monday night raw with Nitro when you first hear the news that hey we've got real competition and WCW on Monday night and they're going to be live every week whereas we're taping shows in advance at this point what's your what's your take on that. Do you think this is real competition or is wwe still perpetually going to be a little big brother other of of the WWF. I thought the WF headed a massive head. Start as they do right now. No company is going to threaten. WBZ market share anytime. Anytime soon. Luckily mine or your lifetime. Conrad quite frankly. But that's not a sad sad tale to tell because there's plenty of money out there revenues to to earn in the entertainment world that cutting a W for example can can enjoy enjoy and make significant profits over time. So I I just I think that On what we're talking about Tran thought this left I was thinking about something else is nitro. Oh Yeah Yeah my issue is this. I I questioned where they have the in-house personnel to pull it off in a big way and of course a lot of that stuff was You Know David Crockett part of getting a credit for some of the. Because he was one of the you know one of the producers there an onsite people but giving the staff have to gather to do the the you know to to the rigging the lighting everything I didn't know they were. They were ready to do that because everything had always been such a smaller scale Ale and then to be able to do it live every Monday. A major us a whole different world so I didn't know that that was going to be as successful as it was and it was a pleasant surprise actually because it made the business look better overall because they hate they had great production values in the show's look clean slick. You might not agree with creative. Hell that's normal. You can say that any heir any show with the the the show look good and I thought that was a step in the right direction for them. So so you could. You can tolerate a good-looking show. That might not be the greatest creative for a little longer now forever a little longer than he can. The other way around.

Well, what just to get people's attention around here? Bill on a good reason. You can't go to HR and say, you know, I fired him or her because our appeals attention. But people do that all the time.

He's not right. All right. Jim we need to take a time out right here to let everybody know that it can be a little frustrating, especially if you're in a hurry or running late to find yourself at a railway crossing waiting for a train. And if the signals are going, and the trains, not even there yet, you can feel tempted to try and sneak across the tracks. Well, don't ever trains are often going a lot faster than you expect them to be and they can't stop even if the engineer hits the brakes right away. It can take a train over a mile to stop. And by that time. Well, it used to be your car is just a crushed honk of metal. And what used to be you? Well, better not think about that. The point is you can't know how quickly the train will arrive and the train can't stop, even if it sees you. The result is disaster. If the signals are on and the train is on its way. Well, you just need to remember. One thing. Stop trains can't. So fast forward, not even a year. And now the shoe's on the other foot any find out that the guy whose job you saved? He's now he didn't won't eat it. I don't think he feel comfortable working with me. He wrote in his book he said, I wanna make it clear on air wish. Of course, I didn't like working with Jim Ross, Tom Jim Ross was I don't wanna say a tyrant. But he was a miserable human being a lot of that had to do with the fact that he reported Bill watts and he had to take a lot of watts as shit Jim had support Bill. Watts decisions. Whether he agreed with them or not he had to be his hatchet, man. Jim took responsibility for a lot of what Bill. Watts chose to do. It was a miserable position to be. And you continue one of the things I respect about Jim Ross is that he's an incredibly hardworking oil person. If the guy above him says this is what I wanna do. He goes. And does it with a hundred and fifty percent effort with respectable wants that puts him in very difficult position. Bill Shaw move Jim out of. Wrestling operations.

Tune in Stitcher or heroin. Heck, you get your slobber knocker audio. We've free shit you, and we certainly free shit. You also leaving those five star ratings when you get the opportunity, but right now kids, here's what's on my mind. A lot of things on my mind this week, folks. And a lot of interesting things are developing a creatively and the world of pro wrestling. I seen a lot boy since we talked last. I have consumed a bunch of product a bunch of fraud talking about the momentarily, but I think the the the biggest story would have to be the return of the McMahon's Mishra McMahon bents a Stephanie her husband triple h and brother Shane the came back on Monday night, raw they're gonna they're gonna take over the administrative control of these shows on their inner story in their characters and television characters should be interesting should be interesting. I was a little bit disappointed. That there was not more of a shakeup because I have my hopes really sky high maybe too high quite frankly that we would say major implosion of the flagship brand, and it would be beginning to be reassembled before they went off the air to some degree. I got a what I thought was an entertaining. I albeit maybe long for some people's taste for a segment or the McMahon's lay in the lead the land here establishing the lay of the land. But then the rest of the show is kinda felt to me like it was business as usual. So I said to myself, and I did Monday night, KOMO JR. It's a you're talking about creative with show business fighting. How can you get to upset with the play fights? And you are critiquing. It lucky was the NFL playoffs. And then some is gonna say, well JR, you know, kind, of course, that's your business. Yeah. It's it's a but some of my life. So hope it's not years either. I thought the information of Doda view, they're gonna adds new talents. I'm big on lar- Sullivan. The big some guys got this astonishing look if he is cared taken. And he is he is Ron along with no stone unturned he needs to be assigned to an agent that can lead him every step of the way, not a different agent every week. He's got it. He he's a kinda guy would walk down on airport corridor. And everybody would look if you walked zero restaurant people going to look he draws attention. So he's a head Turner. So I'm I'm high on him. He needs his own guy. He thinks his own agent. That's going to bring him along with one on one care. That's my take on that deal. I'm glad he see threes. Getting back on the main roster. Nicky cross really has a unique upside I think in the female division. She's very fundamentally sound I like the tag team of heavy machinery because they are throwback to the looks of the old big barrel chested powerlifting. You know? They're they they steaks and they lift weights. I dig that's good. Then I thought when I first saw Lacey Evans at the first may young classic..

"WWE hall of Famer Jim Ross and now the man himself noodle JR rural. Thank you very much. Anonymous, big voice guy. I body. I am Jim Ross. Thank you so much being with us on the Jim Rausch report here from the mighty was would one pack show tonight. Big time daily brecca bust. Open radio Jonas a little bit later on as will mardi girl. How about that? I got it. Right. First time out so don't. Nope. Bowman buses you spelling freaks Marta both. These guys are compelling gas. Great conversationalist, and I think gonna really enjoy both interviews that were recorded on the cruise of Jericho. So that's still to come. And but first of all, you always know, here's what's on my mind. What's on my mind here this week? With on a sad note. Our good friend Jose at thorough died on Tuesday down in Texas. Eighty three years of age. Jose was a very unique Latin star his Hispanic descent seem to give him a little bit more extra juice in this much as a Jose had the elements that every baby face to be successful must maintain they must possess. And that is his ability to sell his real passion this not manufactured, but it comes from him. And the fact that he never gives up. You get those things you build a trust with your audience. And so you become a dependable investment for them when they're buying a ticket. It's not that hard in. My estimation has to how that hope Dakata me works. Jose was a he was a he'll certain times as well. The everybody is seemingly along the journey. But Jose was just a great baby face full of fire. You knew you would never quit on you. He's gonna fight till very very end. And man, he had some of the best punches that. I think I've ever seen Jose at has some Amtra boxing experience. No doubt about that as well. He's best known for in this generation for training. Shawn Michaels, and I was in cowboy Bill watts office the day that he not watching are have a booking meeting, and he he got a phone call of Jose and tell him Bill trained this kid. Shawn Michaels, I think Sean Higgins about and then but nonetheless. Shawn Michaels and that he wanted to build again this kid a shot and give them a break and hiring. Well, it never seen. Sean. He didn't have any by eight by ten. He didn't have any videotape. Coach Sean was rookie coming out of Jose's training area. And getting his first job in territory. And so built hired him sight unseen strictly on the word of Jose areo. That's how trusted and respected. This man was throughout his career. It was a blessing for me to even know him. He conducted himself even lateness career when he is Shawn Michaels corner like in San Antonio or against Bret Hart and the iron man match like all the con- the consummate pro. So my thoughts and prayers go out to Jose's family and his friends so many in the wrestling business that load Jose as many of us did. And we wish them nothing, but some peace and serenity during this trying time. Mm. So Jose will meet you. But it has been a pleasure. Knowing you until we meet again. We got good news in the food front. Always like starting off something of that food front. I don't know what that means food front is. Meaning to me is that JR products are now in all the Ingles markets throughout the southeast. That's over two hundred stores. So there's an angle store near you. I would sincerely appreciate you checking them out going to the the sauce aisle sausage, and and take by bus product. That'd be nice, my grandkids appreciated, and but take a pitcher, even if you're not in the mood to buy at least take a picture and tweeted to me at J R S V Q. And now we're going to try to do some kind of little something on that front soon. But led to know where you are what store it was. And we've Free State that much. I think we've already got some floating in here already not really officially is. Now, go for it. And I'm going to text message somebody probably about the barbecue sauce. So there's that also, you know, it's always that. Oh w shop dot com. They degrade jobs of facilitating your order the order. Fulfillment. You wheel no saying so w shop dot com. Ingles.

It ruling matches in in in. And the biggest thing is there was no responsibility taken by the very guys have been senior thought. We're taking care of the towns and business was being badly treated up there in. I got a real bad lawsuit back there in those days because nobody nobody came in and helped me. When we had a riot. And they should have been there to help us to help help us get out of it and help protect us. Because you know these riots, of course, the guys they don't know anything about that because none of ever been in one. But we used to have rice back then because our fans will the different persuasion about the business. Well, he's things I saw all I thought even play cards if you want to. I don't care. But when you get when you've at the arena, we're not gonna have any cards at from our before the first bell until until it's over. Pro wrestling gets people have been involved in a million times and you've probably have been involved in two million times where people roll their eyes at the profession.

And I'm wondering, you know, I didn't put him over because he said, you said, well, it makes a company look bad for Hartson by is absolutely horrible. We why would he be if you didn't have some redeeming qualities? Why would I have more show? You know you're asking me these these questions that could certainly have gone through the mind viewer of that that guy's owner what what's midsouth what's going on? Mid Sal guy wrestled, you know, Ted DVR on TV last week, and you said you gotta make everybody has some redeeming qaulity that you one thing, hey, this guy's got big arms bigger body.

Let me tell you something Aretha lacked her severe Retha Aretha liked being a diva she played her role. She was that was her character.

"WWE hall of Famer, Jim Ross. And now the man himself noodle JR very much and Hello again, everybody. We got some Slava audio for you here today. A lot of ground to cover special guest Becky Lynch, joining me here. We'll bit the top about everything that went on this week on smackdown alive. The fact that she's a summer slam main event live a match with not only Carmella Carmella title at stake, but also Charlotte, Becky, best friend in the matches. Well, I wonder how Vicki likes being considered by some as a side kick. I'll ask her that question a little bit later in this broadcast. So again, thanks for being with us so much to cover so many things that will tug on your heartstrings no doubt about that as well. So without any further do because I got a habit I needs it accustomed. No to know, is he really Andre, the giant. Guts to know what's on my mind. Off what's on my mind with our condolences to the families of Nikolai Volkoff, brickhouse Brown. And of course my dear friend, Jerry lawler's family loss the king's son, Brian Christopher Lawler. They all passed away this past Sunday, July twenty ninth. I was in London. The king call me in the middle of the night and for whatever reason I turn my phone on by -brate and it was on a desk cross from where I was sleeping, and I never heard the phone ring. So I missed that call. I always forget that. But any wanna tell you Nikolai, Volkov seventy what a gentle giant he was. I met him in the LeRoy mcgurk territory as one half of the Mongols tag team with no veteran new Newton, tatty Newton, tattoos a senior member of the team, but everybody that could was in was could had vision knew that Nikolai Volkov. I think it was Beppo the. F. o. Gaito Beppo Mongla thing. Be PPO be ET oh, musher Beppo model. Look it up crackdowns to a Ronald care. I remember one trip we drove in my out of Pontiac a transam to door. Never get a two door car. If you're going to travel on the road in a restaurant business, first of all, it was a hundred miles to Joplin Missouri from Tulsa. We're all based in Tulsa. Of the of the forty four. And on the way back, we got a six pack of beer of which I did not drink because I was driving, and I wasn't really a big drinker that time my times have changed. And so anyway, we have the six pack of beer new about four of, no, that Nikolai at two. So four to six. Got that math, right and Nikolai stars playing using my body like drums 'cause we had the radio on some classic rock music or something, and he had his two beers. Got got a very nice buzz and using my body as drums. And by the way, there was not a damn thing I could do about it. He was as big and as athletic and strong. It naturally strong as anybody to that date I had ever seen and what a nice man. I really thought. He's just a terrific guy, and he was such a causes accent and in his athletic ability and his look, he had a look that was a fierce brickhouse Brown also known as fritzy, right? Which leads to a store here minute he passed away after at age. Fifty, seven, prostate cancer often hear wrestlers have prostate cancer issues. I wonder because of the fact that many of them don't have health insurance. That they don't get checked. And if you get frost your prostate checked regularly, then it's very likely you can. You can control any cancer there. So I wonder sometimes caused wrestlers are sometimes negligent about getting insurance and what's the fall, the.
