WWE: Don't Waste the Legendary Jim Ross at Wrestlemania

A big mistake could possibly take place at Wrestlemania.

Rumor has it that Jim Ross will be the one doing the commentating during the match between Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler.

Some feel that Ross' long time connection with Lawler serves as a logical reason to do the guest commentating spot.

That would be a waste.

For marketing purposes, it would make all the sense in the world for Ross to commentate for the entire event. Old school wrestling fans would appreciate and so would younger wrestling fans, who cannot see past Cole's character right now.

However, McMahon simply does not want that to happen, as he feels that Ross is a bad fit for the image that his company wants. It's the same reason why he ignores the fans' plea to bring Ross back to Monday Night Raw.

To have Ross doing commentary for just that one match would serve as a source of irritation for viewers. With a potentially classic match between Triple H and Undertaker on the card, it would be annoying to know that Ross is just sitting backstage.

Ross needs to call the entire show or he needs to commentate in the main event matches.

He shouldn't just be commentating in a meaningless match between two guys that shouldn't be wrestling on the biggest wrestling extravaganza of the year.
