What's the story?

WrestleMania is just around the corner, and with WrestleMania week comes many spectacular events from all wrestling personalities and promotions. Friday afternoon, legendary WWE commentator Jim Ross announced on Twitter that his one-man show is returning for WrestleMania weekend.

In case you didn't know...

Jim Ross' career in professional wrestling began back in 1974 working a tri-state area of the NWA territory that included Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana. His big break in wrestling would come in 1987 when he would work for Jim Crockett Promotions; this would later become WCW.

He's most famously known as one-half of one of the greatest commentary teams of all time with Jerry 'The King' Lawler during the WWF Attitude Era.

The heart of the matter

In just a week's time, fans of Jim Ross will be able to purchase tickets for his latest one-man show called SlobberKnocker Sessions on Friday, 6 April. At the time of this writing, no further details were given as to a location, but there will be a book signing and a Q&A session.

Past one-man shows of Jim Ross typically include a guest but were typically much later at night. With this event taking place in the morning, it is not known if there will be a guest or if it will just truly be a one-man show starring JR.

What's next?

Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for further details regarding this special event, and any other events that will be worth mentioning as we approach WrestleMania in New Orleans, Louisiana on 8 April.

Author's take

I decided to attend one of Jim Ross' one-man shows on a whim when I attended WrestleMania 32 in Dallas, Texas two years ago. It was a very late show that was delayed even further as they waited for the crowd who went to the WWE Hall Of Fame ceremony to reach the location of this event.

I highly suggest that if you get the chance to go to one of these show, that you do so. Jim has a lot of great stories to tell and is always engaging with the fans.


The particular show I went to in Dallas, his special guest was Rob Van Dam, and later on Jeff Hardy and Shane Helms 'crashed the party' to make it a very entertaining evening.
