On Jim Ross‘ latest Ross Report, JR gives his take on some of wrestling’s biggest topics of the moment including how he’d go about booking the Ronda Rousey & Becky Lynch match at Survivor Series and his thoughts on IMPACT’s new timeslot. Quotes are below (transcription credit should go to @DominicDeAngelo at WrestleZone):

Jim Ross on how he’d book Ronda Rousey and Becky Lynch at Survivor Series:

“I had a good idea for that thing. I figure that Rousey’s gonna go over. And I don’t have a problem with that. One loss, then again depending on how the process evolves, you ain’t gonna hurt Becky Lynch. I’m sorry (ruin your image), it’s not. She’s that over and she has a lot of momentum and so a bump in the road, depending again on how it’s executed is not going to kill her. I like Rousey going for the armbar and Becky refusing to give up and passing out. Or the referee stops it. She doesn’t have to be totally unconscious, but where as she can’t defend herself or make a decision whether or not she can continue or not. If its executed and explained, it’s a hell of a finish. Makes her tougher than a $2 steak and it gets Rousey’s armbar even more over. And you got your big investment, your big ticket player getting her hand raised. That’s just my take on it, but what do I know?”

On IMPACT‘s 10:oo pm EST time slot on Pop TV:

“Doin’ them no favors. Its hammering nails in coffins as far as TV vernacular is concerned. Last week the viewership was hovering around 100,000. You can’t sell goods out of an empty wagon, kids and the wagon’s damn near empty and that’s a shame because they got good creative people, they got a good talent roster, they got a lousy, they meaning IMPACT (pronoun, boy) – that won’t work.

“You’re perpetuating the inevitable and that’s not a good ending.”

JR also gives insight on what he thinks about Hulk Hogan’s appearance at WWE Crown Jewel and the passing of Jose Lothario. To hear all that and more (including a chat with Marty Scurll & Busted Open Radio’s Dave LaGreca) you can subscribe to The Ross Report by going here.
