Been waiting for this one. Thinking very hard about what to say. Still wasn't sure but the picture used for JR seals it.

Go Sooners!

@bill_p: ahhh, missed it, was watching Final Round all weekend.

oh man I'm excited for this

Love to have 47 minutes to sit down good ole' JR. Damn, the things this guy has seen. As long as he didn't try to peddle his terrible Oklahoma bar-b-que sauce

Same thing here, honestly

Edited by SpiderJerusalem

I don't know, this was kinda cool but I would have preferred a normal episode about Mania and their predictions. They seem really restrained and just asking questions as if they were wrestling journalists, which is fine; but it's not really what I listen to the Powerbombcast for.

WHO WOULD GO AND HIT JIM ROSS WITH A CAR? We have to get to the bottom of this!

Posted by EricSmith

Hopefully he is less salty at the business here than he is on his own podcast.

Edited by Hassun

Still the weirdest thing he was kind of pushed out after the drunk Ric Flair hilarity. If that's actually the whole story or real reason of course.

Thank you Jim Ross for making me look up Ray Stevens.

This is neat-- can you put it onto the premium podcast feed as well just so people who don't regularly check the site can get their fix?

Posted by Bill_P

Great job guys! Jim really seemed to like talking to ya'll.

This isn't that far off from being a true statement. At the very least it has my favorite pro wrestling content.

@milkman:

Yeah, I'm an idiot; the title of this interview should have told me as much. Have they said when it's dropping?

By the way, all in all; JR seems like a really cool guy.

I'm a little torn. Like, I'm not way into the idea of bringing people on to shill and shill and shill. But then Jeff is capable of doing a hell of an interview and I'd like to hear more of it.

JR, what a class act. Could listen to the man forever

Posted by Boboblaw

Great interview and fun podcast but yeah definitely would prefer if this was more natural, i.e. do a bit of an interview then go into the normal podcast and just include JR on the usual shenanigans instead of ask a question and let him talk for a while.

Posted by cloudymusic

What a weird website Giant Bomb can be. And I'm all for it.

Posted by Jellybones

Dan trying his damnedest to get JR to say that Kansas City is his favorite BBQ town had me practically rolling on the floor.

@boboblaw: I'm guessing this format is the only way they'll get to do an interview with him, really.

Posted by gvaranini

@boboblaw: JR's time was limited and it's tough to do that kind of format with a guest like this.

That's the carnie mentality that almost all of the old timers in Wrestling have, I've become so used to it that it's kind of comforting. Besides everyone deserves their couple of seconds for a plug if it means we get 40mins of knowledge from one of the most knowledgeable men in the Biz.

I still love F4W. The audio quality is super professional and always an insightful listen for me on the regular.

That's a sweet photo of a Jim Ross wax figure

And that was a great interview guys! I hope that there will be more interviews like this in the future.

@spiderjerusalem: The regular ep is still coming out later this week, hence the "Extra" part of it.

Kansas City BBQ Quality endorsement!

THAT MAN HAD A FAMILY!

Edited by dougfunk15

@spiderjerusalem: agreed. cool to get JR on the cast, but a WM Preview would be fun to listen to. ** Edit** Jeff just tweeted out that there will in fact be a "regular episode" of PBCast for Premium members later this week. WrestleMania preview!!! Yippee!!!

what does JR think of ghost problems

Posted by AMyggen

@spiderjerusalem: agreed. cool to get JR on the cast, but a WM Preview would be much more fun to listen to.

We're still getting a normal Powerbombcast WM preview episode, this is just an interview that will run in that episode which they made available to people that aren't subs.

Coming from a long lapsed wrestling fan, this was a great listen with great questions!

Thanks for the interview guys. It was a lot more even keeled than I expected. I listen to Jim Ross's podcast pretty regularly. Although I think he gives WWE too much slack I still enjoy listening to his opinions about wrestling considering that his commentary was a significant part of my childhood. Weirdly enough I kind of prefer the Powerbombcast, sorry Jim. I wish nothing but the best for good ol' JR.

Posted by seannao

Quality podcast and interview! It felt a little cool, understandably, but what a treat! Plenty of insight and some stuff I've never heard before, like why Mick Foley was selected and that he was rejected so many times... I admit it's been a while since I've read Have a Nice Day though, but I don't quite remember him talking about the reason why he was brought into the WWE/F.

I think I could listen to J.R. wax nostalgic for the rest of time.

STUNNER! STUNNER!

Posted by TheKingShorty

Is this going to show up on the podcast feed? I haven't seen it on Overcast yet.

Edited by JRM

Hmmm, I have a feeling this is gunna be a slobber-knocker!

Edit: Just saw that the podcast is only 47 min, that makes me sad.

AS GOD AS MY WITNESS! HE IS BROKEN IN HALF!

Posted by Venekor

I was 10 when watching WWF in 1998 and I loved it, I could understand right from wrong, I knew wrestling was scripted and it had no impact on me mentally. I don't see why they treat kids as being stupid and how they have to turn WWE into Disney to appeal to them... LIKE NO WE HATED DISNEY AS KIDS! What kids wanna see is blood and gore and people smashing each others face in!
