Jim Ross Criticizes “Extreme” Rules


Jim Ross recently discussed the use of the word ‘Extreme’ and professional wrestling, saying it doesn’t “enhance anything anymore’ because the product has changed. Here is what he had to say:

“Look, I’m not by any means advocating that ‘oh my god, we’ve gotta get blood back into wrestling.’ I’m not saying that at all but the fact is the product has changed. It’s more refined, it’s more sophisticated, if you will, for the lack of a better term off the top of my head right now. So it’s not really ever going to be related to extreme. That’s not a negative. It’s almost like… ‘extreme,’ to me, is a little bit like the term ‘Diva.’ It kind had its shelf life and let’s move on. It doesn’t enhance anything anymore.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
