Jim Ross posted a blog on JRsBarBQ.com in response to recent comments from TNA writer Vince Russo. Here is what Russo originally said:
"Show me the wrestling rule book where it says you can't have a DQ in a cage match. As far as Monday night's match went - there was a reason 'behind the scenes' why the match had to end in a DQ. Also, are you saying that you would never see a DQ in an MMA match because it's inside a cage?"
JR then posted the following response:
"Been reading on line some interviews with those in the biz who feel that Cage Matches need not a winner via the stipulations set forth in the presentation. I could not disagree more. Cage Matches were created to bring about closure, literally and figuratively, and to have a disqualification in a cage match is wrong...in my opinion. Granted, my opinion may not be 100% accurate either but it's my opinion nonetheless.
I'm not even a big fan of 'escaping the cage' to determine a winner in a cage match but I can live with that easier than I can seeing someone get disqualified inside a cage in a pro wrestling match. Ugh."
