JR's Blog: Steve Austin, ECW, RAW Rating

Jim Ross is back with another Q&A update at his website, jrsbarbq.com. Below are some of the highlights:

- JR on Austin’s final match: Steve could do well w/ many guys including HBK, Cena, Edge, and Jericho. No one would like to see Austin in one final match any more than me but I really think that ship has sailed. If it doesn’t happen at WM25 then I don’t think it ever will.

- JR on who he would like to manage if he weren’t announcing:
Whoever at the time had the potential to sell the most tkts. Today I might suggest Kozlov as I feel he could be really good.

- JR on if we will see a 2 hour ECW and an edgier ECW:
My guess is no to both questions. ECW’s talent roster is essentially young and w/o depth. Being PG attracts more potentially lucrative advertisers. Going PG makes sense to me.

- JR on why RAW got the 2.6 rating: Well a 13.7 cable rating is stout for Cowboys-Eagles but it all comes back that if any program contains what the audience wants to see they will watch it. No excuses from me.
