An evening with WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross in New Orleans

Known to sports entertainment fans around the world as the voice of professional wrestling, good ole J.R. has nearly done it all.

From sports entertainment executive to New York Times Bestselling author, to concurring the struggle of Bell’s palsy and even playing the role of entrepreneur with his own barbeque sauce brand, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has certainly worn many hats.

On Thursday, April 3, he will don his most famous hat, a 200X Resistol, when he takes the stage to share his life story for a one night only engagement at the House of Blues in New Orleans.

As one of the most influential sports executives of the past 40 years, J.R. has been welcomed into the homes of millions of viewers each and every week via WWE. His cool yet dry Southern charm became the soundtrack for some of wrestling’s many memorable clashes and spectacular moments in the sport’s rich history.

J.R.'s tales of the road and personal anecdotes feature some of sports entertainment’s most legendary stars.

After a successful run in the United Kingdom, J.R. will take center stage in New Orleans for two performances on one night, sharing his stories with wrestling fans on Thursday, April 3 in the intimate setting of the House of Blues in New Orleans.

Tickets are currently on sale on and at the House of Blues Box Office.

VIP tickets are available for each performance and include a chance to meet the legendary voice of sports entertainment personally.
