WWE Hall of Famer and former announcer Jim Ross has updated the blog section of his website at JRsBarBQ.com where he talks about if he would be interested in being the general manager of RAW or SmackDown!, if the Undertaker has retired from the squared circle, and a few of his pet peeves in professional wrestling. Below are a few of the highlights:

Ross on if he would like to become general manager of the RAW and SmackDown! brands: “No, thanks. Anoint someone who needs the TV time in hopes of building for the future. The role needs to be tweaked in my view and now is a good time to do so.”

Ross on one of his pet peeves: “Wrestlers who can’t act but attempt to do so on wrestling shows. When in doubt simply be yourself. For the record, I’ve been told that my acting skills suck and that would be an accurate statement. Another personal annoyance on TV wrestling is ‘faux’ laughter. It’s an eye rolling, channel changer.”

Ross on if The Undertaker has retired: “Has Undertaker retired? O.K., let’s think about this one. IF Taker had retired, wouldn’t one think that WWE would memorialize that occasion in a HUGE way? Come on folks, WWE is an entertainment company and when one of the biggest stars in history decides to call it a day, I think I can safely say, that we will all know. So the answer is ‘No’ the Undertaker has not retired and ‘No’ I don’t know when he’s returning and ‘No’ I don’t think that he will EVER lose at a WrestleMania. (Haven’t heard so many NO’s since my senior prom.)”
