Jim Ross Criticizes How The Media Has Covered The Coronavirus

On a recent edition of Grilling JR, Jim Ross discussed the Coronavirus. Here are some highlights…

On the media’s coverage of the Coronavirus:

“I don’t know if the media is doing us any favors screaming about it. It’s important to be aware, you have to be smart, and I understand washing your hands and not touching your face, but man there’s a lot of unanswered questions, we’re in uncharted waters.”

“To me, it’s kind of stupid. For a lot of people to project what’s going to happen when they don’t know all the information. We’re talking about an unknown entity and an untraveled road and we’re supposed to be able to navigate that through the media and I think that’s wrong.”

On companies doing empty arena shows:

“I watched a little bit of Smackdown last week from the WWE Performance Center and that’s an interesting thing. I’ve done wrestling T.V. shows back in the day with 20 people in them, T.V. studio type things. We taped them in a barn one time for a while in Tulsa at the Fairgrounds and then you’d have the studio audience of maybe two rows of people.”

“I’ve done these shows before and it looks like we’re going to be doing AEW, at least as I understand it, and by the time people hear this it may change again, but I think that Jacksonville is going to be our place for a while until all this bulls*** blows over and gets addressed. I don’t know what else we could do.”
