Has anyone listened to Grilling Jr, the reformatted Jim Ross podcast? They have one episode out with JR discussing leaving wcw for wwf.
I think Jim is one of the greatest storytellers in wrestling. Very interesting and honest.
I fell off his podcast because I don’t think hes a good interviewer, especially with young talent. He talks over them and gives them advice instead of just listening and asking follow up questions. I miss his weekly take on the product but Ross is a much better subject than interviewer. Conrad’s great as usual.
I loved him talking about commentary as his lifelong passion. A legend!
problem with all of Conrads pod cast is they are too long. Break them up into 2 parters. I know it makes no since but I would listen to two different podcasts at 1 to 1-1/2 hours a week then one of 2-3 hours
There was a time when the Prichard show was going super long, where each episode would be 4 hours. It is difficult to keep up with all of Conrad’s podcasts. WHW with Tony Schiavone sometimes is only an hour and a half if they do an old Crockett TV. The Prichard show has also been a little more condensed lately.
Just found out about this (from this thread) and will give it a listen. For a guy like JR, I think I’ll prefer the Conrad formula of “pick a topic and go through the details with somebody who was there”.
And this may sound stupid, but I couldn’t stand JR’s ad breaks. And as someone who listens to podcasts mainly while driving, this was a big deal. If I never have to hear him do another Stu Hart or Gordon Solie impression, I’m in.
Good question. I am sure its more mental then anything. I just look at the time and think I dont have the time to commit to that long a pod cast but hey I can listen to two others that are equal in time to it.
Anyone listen to the latest episode on Capital Combat '90? It was an interesting episode and felt JR reverted a little back to his preachy old school, “Wrestlers these days need to learn how to sell” ways. I will give JR credit in the fact that he is better than Bruce Prichard at admitting fault and being critical of himself and the companies he worked for.
