Jim Ross Reveals How He Felt About WWE WrestleMania 18 Main Event

Jim Ross Reveals How He Felt About WWE WrestleMania 18 Main Event

During a Q&A session on his Grillin’ JR podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross revealed some interesting facts about the main events of WrestleMania 18 and 19.

On Triple H vs. Chris Jericho as the main event of WrestleMania 18 over Hollywood Hulk Hogan vs. The Rock:

"Jericho and Triple H had to close the show and follow Rock and Hogan, and that was no favor to those guys.

You know Triple H is going to raise hell if you don’t close the show with the title, Jericho the same, we deserve to close the show with the title, it’s the top match, and you do, I’m not going to argue that point. But on this night, the special night with Hogan and Rock, you have to use a different logic. 

As much as I respect and appreciate Paul Levesque and Chris Jericho, they were put into an unwinnable situation. It was the first time I can recall, before or since I was having a hard time getting up for the main event of WrestleMania, because I just seen the WrestleMania main event. It was Hogan and Rock.

Lawler and I knew that the nWo and Hogan as the villain wasn’t going to be the guy we had in the ring tonight. I said to somebody after the show, it was like the return of The Eagles, all intact and the first song they sung was Hotel California. Everybody knew the words, everybody knew the beat, they knew everything. They had felt it, they heard it before and now we’re seeing our version of The Eagles in Hogan against the new guy, who’s bigger than life.

So we changed the roles. I admire the talent for steering the course, they didn’t do a lot of things differently, the subtle things they did were beautiful and then Lawler and I just went with it. Vince said just go with your instincts, so that’s what we did. We called what we saw."
