WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross appeared on Sports Illustrated’s Hot Clicks Podcast this week to discuss Monday’s big RAW 1,000 show.

Here’s a transcript of what JR said about his role at the show:

“It’s kind of like a baseball player going to the All Star game in Kansas City,” Ross said. “I’m just kind of waiting to see what the manager puts on the lineup card. I know I’m on the roster, I know I’m figured to do something, I’m just waiting to see where my name is penciled in. With an old guy like me who’s been around the horn — been weathered — there’s nothing that can be assigned that I probably haven’t already done.”

“In a perfect world I’d love to call a match, but that’s not my call. But I’m ready to play, whatever they want me to do, I’m ready to roll.”
