On the latest episode of “Grilling JR”, Jim Ross discussed TNA making the decision to move to Monday nights and how the WWE reacted to it. Here’s what he had to say:
I’m glad they did it because it would settle the issues once and for all that we’re going to be the dominate brand on Monday night come hell or high water. We earned that right through the 83 week debacles, and ass whippings. We were Oklahoma and they were LSU for 83 weeks, it wasn’t fun. So, nobody at our place was worried. Concerned might be a good word, hell I don’t know, know what I mean? We’re aware, we knew we had competition, we had to produce a better product, all that stuff that competition brings you. Competition, folks, is good for wrestling. The best thing for Monday Night RAW right now, if you wanna make RAW better, put another show against it. Now I’m not talking about AEW now, I’m talking about some other group. But you get better when you got competition. That’s what makes games interesting. That’s why they keep score.
