Jamie Jones: Ross has tales to tell

Here are the notes and news items from the world of pro wrestling: After more than 40 years in the pro wrestling business, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has lots of stories to tell.

During a spoken word tour this summer, he plans to tell some of them.

“A lot of those stories I’m going to be able to share. I think they’re all part of a changing time,” Ross told wwe.com. “I got in the wrestling business young; I was 22. Just chronologically getting into the business and being able to work the territory as a referee, and then a ring crew guy, and then ring announcing, and then broadcasting, and then promoting. I think this whole journey from when I started in the mid-’70s until today is going to be informative, and I think fans that are really fans are going to enjoy it, as well as the Q&A session, which will be a big part of the shows.”

• Chris Jericho plans to release his next book in February 2014.

• “Stone Cold” Steve Austin is filming another reality show he claims will be the “toughest” show on television. Nothing could be tougher than watching “The Bachelor.”
