Jim Ross looks back on his XFL experience, why his one-man shows are a safe haven for pro wrestling fans

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross spoke with the Orlando Sentinel about his run as an XFL play-by-play voice. “I never saw the XFL as a negative,” Ross said. “It’s still on my resume. It wasn’t good quality football, crazy things went on, but it was showbiz. I just looked at it as something different.”

Ross also spoke about his one-man show, which will be in Orlando for WrestleMania weekend. “I’ve been a wrestling fan my whole life, and for so many years a lot of us have been, for lack of a better word, bullied,” he said. “We’ve been teased, kidded, eyes rolled from our peers and family members. ‘You watch wrestling?!?’ I see my shows as a safe zone, a safe haven. We’re all wrestling fans here. At WrestleMania, there will be fans from all over the world all coming together, and we get to talk about wrestling. That’s a great thing.” Read the full interview at Orlandosentinel.com.

The one-man shows take place on April 1-2 at Plaza Live with early afternoon starts to accommodate those with NXT and WrestleMania tickets.
