Jim Ross Talks To Sports Illustrated

WWE Hall Of Famers Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler recently spoke with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated to promote their upcoming two-man show at Hilarities 4th Street Theater in Cleveland, Ohio.

During the interview, "Good Ole' J.R." spoke about his feelings on Ronda Rousey vs. Becky Lynch potentially headlining WrestleMania 35 next year.

"I would be very comfortable in booking Becky Lynch vs. Ronda Rousey in the main event at WrestleMania," said Ross. "I wouldn't be offended if they added Charlotte to that match, but right now, Becky and Ronda would be my match on top. That's the hottest thing they have going right now."

Ross claims that a Lynch vs. Rousey headliner would entice Vince McMahon due to the attention it would garner inside and outside of the pro wrestling world.

"Right now, none of the men are red hot," said Ross. "You can't say that about the women. They have captivated the attention of the fans. There is no male red hot enough to make me want to supersede putting them above Rousey or Lynch in the main event at WrestleMania. WWE can also market to the outside world that this is the first time in history that women are going to close the show. That is an amazing opportunity, and these women would be pioneers for the company."
