One whether or not The Ascension are going “too far”: I haven’t seen enough of them on RAW to make any kind of declaration. I hope that they make it big and their introduction may be being over thought by some. We aren’t supposed to like/embrace heels, right?
Totally agree with Ross on this one. The Ascension are being disrespectful to some of the all-time greats and in this era where everyone is a ‘smart’ fan who likes rooting for the bad guys might have struck a genuine nerve with the audience.
On rumors that he’s negotiating with Lucha Underground: “Word on the internet that I’m “negotiating” with Lucha Underground which isn’t accurate whatsoever. I enjoy their show but I’ve had zero contact with any one there except Chris DeJoseph, who taped an upcoming Ross Report Podcast, (drops March 24) and Matt Striker who I worked with at Wrestle Kingdom 9.
What a shame. While I think Striker and Vampiro are doing a perfectly fine job in Lucha Underground, having more JR announcing is always a good thing.
Thoughts on Marc Mero:I don’t recall having any significant issues wish Mark Mero over the years. He always seemed like a decent man to me.
Mero was on Russo’s podcast, The Swerve, recently and apparently told a story that was highly emotional on the V.I.P. end of the interview. I’m not a subscriber so I missed out. I still like his free stuff, though.
