Bob Ross died in 1995. The repeats of his show will go on forever, I think.

Back to Jim Ross for a second, doesn't the reason Jim Ross gave for leaving more telling and more scathing of the trouble with the moral of that lockerroom right now then any WWE doomsday writer.

We have professionals so paranoid that they are using a magnify glass to see if their name is mentioned on his report and how many times and if not they are having a hissy fit! Shouldn't they be a little more confident with themselves, this is sad.

Honestly I consider myself pretty smark but half the time when JR is lashing out at people for interpreting his report I have no idea who he's talking about. Plus everyones going to interpret the report whatever the way they want, he could either make himself more clear and again again if any profession freaks out on how some internet hack interprets the report there some real communication problems with the WWE.

Is there any reason to go to WWE.com now, maybe it's a good thing that the panda got WWF.com it's not like the wrestling company is really using it anymore.

Oh well if JR is paranoid and thin skinned about what he writes and alienate more of his viewership, that's up to him. But I am not taking back my JR visits Big Lazy Kevin Nash home story on the "RossReport Injury Update" thread.

Here's an interesting question: If Jim Ross decides that enough is enough and leaves WWE completely(or someone decides that JR's services are no longer required), who could possibly fill in the play-by-play commentator's position on Raw? Is Jonathon Coachman ready? Is Kevin Kelly still alive?

If Vince would stop being such a cheapskate, they could get Joey Styles, I'm sure. But Vince won't stop being such a cheapskate.

Coachman isn't ready, but then again neither was Cole. I'll stay away from the Kevin Kelly's wife would stop watching RAW if she had to see him on TV comment (well, I guess I won't).
But, remember, Good Ol' JR had to start somewhere. As did Schiavone, and even Gordon Solie had to start at some point. Eventually, the business passes everyone by (look how quickly Bill Watts went from a visionary in '86-'87 to a cheap tyrant in '93 to clueless in '95) and changes need to be made.

If he quit, though, what do you think would happen as far as his personnel position goes? Would chaos reign supreme?

He's been busy ever since he was doing the Ross Report. I don't know how he was doing all that stuff in the 1st place. Sometimes people do get burnt out and just don't give a damn no more. That's understandable.

By the sounds of it, someone got pissed because they weren't mentioned in his reports. Repeatedly not being mentioned. He has critized different issues before and still did the report. Now he's calling it quits, coincidence? I think not. Who has that much stroke? Who is not a common name in the Ross Report except for being injured.

Don't you guys see? I hate to say it but

TRIPLE H BURIED THE ROSS REPORT!

It would probably be like when Ross replaced JJ Dillon in the position in the mid-90's. In all likelihood, Johnny Ace would move into the talent position being held by Ross.

No, no he couldn't. WWE has made offers to Joey Styles in the past, but he's a pretentious fuck who thinks he doesn't need the big-time.

Must be the infomercial success that make Styles and No-Sold-Berg feel like such stars.

Hey back to the Ross BBQ sauce thing, how long does it take to get a product on the market? I remember as far back as 1999 he was commenting on the sauce. That was 4 years ago. Does it really take that long to get bbq sauce into stores?
