Jim Ross Talks His MMA Announcing Debut, Vince McMahon During Attitude Era, More

Josh Stewart of Newsday has an interview with WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross, who was discussing his MMA announcing debut at tonight's Battlegrounds MMA pay-per-view. Here are a few highlights:
Making his MMA announcing debut:

"It's [calling MMA] high on my list. Something I wanted to do while I was still motivated to do it."

Working with Chael Sonnen tonight:

"I felt like watching him work on Fox, and Chael's work on UFC, that I could work with him. He was always entertaining, always informative, I felt he had excellent timing, so I felt I could have a blast working with this guy."

Announcing during the Attitude Era:

"He [Vince McMahon] was so busy being an omnipresent role in that soap opera, we weren't produced as heavily as subsequently, when he was back to being the full-time chairman. All those things really gave us the freedom to express ourselves."
