Ian Riccaboni reveals the one instruction Tony Khan gave him before ROH Supercard Of Honor

Long time ROH commentator Ian Riccaboni was a recent guest on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast.

During the interview Riccaboni revealed that the only instruction that Tony Khan gave him was to be himself.

“Tony Khan just said ‘hey, be yourself,’” Riccabani said. “That’s been neat. New Japan, it was the same kind of thing. Stylistically, it’s been helpful that Kevin Kelly has been my mentor over the years, it’s been helpful that he’s brought me in. He’s kind of helped craft what I do. What’s neat about that is that he’s a descendant of Jim Ross, and Jim Ross is the descendant of Bill Watts.”

“So there’s this long learning tree that, while I went to school for broadcasting, there’s a good chance it was actually refined or kind of pushed into me by Kevin Kelly, who probably got it from Jim Ross. So there’s this cool kind of learning tree all along the way. I’ve only been asked to be myself, which I’ve been really fortunate because I’m a bad actor and it would be very difficult to be anybody else.”
