From the WWE Rumor Mill: Jim Ross biopic could be on the way
What's the story?
Jim Ross recently put out his autobiography, "Slobberknocker: My Life In Wrestling" and Dave Meltzer has reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that several producers are already interested in putting the WWE Hall Of Famer's incredible life story on the big screen.
In case you didn't know...
Jim Ross is the voice of a generation for pro wrestling fans and he continues to apply his masterful craft to this day. While working for WWE he is still able to do commentary for New Japan Pro Wrestling as well.
He is in high demand and although he might deserve to take it easy at this stage in his legendary career, it doesn't look like Jim Ross is going to slow down anytime soon.
The heart of the matter
Jim Ross' autobiography "Slobberknocker: My Life In Wrestling" is flying off the shelves and Good ol' JR has been busy promoting his new book. It looks like all that hard work has paid off because Ross' incredible life story might have turned a few heads outside of the pro wrestling community.
Dave Meltzer has reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that multiple producers have expressed interest in making a film about Jim Ross and his story through pro wrestling.
It looks like it didn't take Hollywood very long to take notice of Ross' fascinating life story and it might be only a matter of time before his journey is translated onto the silver screen.
If things work out the way we'd like, Jim Ross' fanbase might grow even more soon enough. After all, people might watch a movie about pro wrestling when they don't really watch pro wrestling.
His inspirational and captivating autobiography could provide a great source material for a film that would not only motivate but capture the fascination of millions around the world who might not have ever heard his iconic voice actually call a match.
I would watch just about any movie about pro wrestling but a Jim Ross biopic might be the best idea I've heard in a long time. Hopefully, it won't be as whitewashed as the upcoming Vince McMahon movie, "Pandemonium" is bound to be.
Jim Ross gets pretty deep in his new book and I can only imagine a movie that truly captures the essence of his life story will be a gripping tale that will entrance audiences all over. The only question remains is who they should cast as the legendary pro wrestling announcer?
