JR recalls announcing “I Quit” match

By : WrestlingDotCom News Posted on

Jim Ross received an email question from a fan about the 1989 “I Quit” match he announced between Ric Flair and Terry Funk.  JR had the following to say on his blog:

An emailer inquired what it was like to broadcast the 1989 famous, “I Quit” match between Ric Flair and Terry Funk with Gordon Solie. First of all, look at all the greats involved in that presentation. Flair, Funk AND Gary Hart along with Solie, the best wrestling broadcaster of all time. It was cool as hell I can tell you broadcasting with my wrestling announcing role model. Gordon had become somewhat irrelevant to the main stream wrestling world when I was able to help facilitate his return to TBS and suggested that we work together as a team on that event. We did other TBS shows as well but the event from Troy, New York was special. Naitch and Terry had a classic, physical battle while Gary Hart was amazing at what he did and, almost as important, what he didn’t do at ringside. Less is often more in this business for the record. Gordon loved to be engaged with the product again and seemed to embrace his role as I was able to do the so called heavy lifting of providing the play by play and Gordon was able to come in and hit us with memorable sound bytes with his unique and cerebral insight to the business. Hopefully, some day, Gary Hart will be in the WWE HOF, too, and I still encourage any fan to read Gary’s book which is simply a classic. Honest, real, up front, and historic in context for any true fan of the business.
