Jim Ross Blog: Update On WWE DVD’s, Brodus Clay, FCW

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights:

– The King and I spent about 2+ hours working on a new project that we will continue to work on over the next month or so. More info on it when the time is right.

– I also worked on a new, DVD project, unaware of the release date, on the Top 50 Finishing Moves in Wrestling on Monday. That should be an interesting DVD and as is customary with ‘lists’ or ‘top ten’s, etc” it will likely be controversial to some fans. Nonetheless I had fun doing it and it brought back some cool memories.

– Had a nice visit with Arn Anderson in OKC and who will be inducted with the Four Horsemen at WM28’s WWE HOF Ceremony the night before WM28. Double A is very deserving and is seemingly an underrated wrestler to many younger fans but certainly not to those of us who saw his work back in the day. He got his start with Cowboy Bill Watts in Mid South Wrestling where many of the game’s biggest stars established their foundation. Arn shaved his long time beard leaving only a mustache which is a departure from his long time, established look.

– Enjoyed a conversation with Brodus Clay who has been long one of my favorite prospects since I started going down to FCW in Tampa to work with the developmental talents. Clay is a big, athletic dude who can provide the sizzle ala Dusty Rhodes (@WWEDusty) but his agility is excellent as well. Like the Dream, Clay can get physical when the need arises and we will see more of that as his development continues.

– Lots of WWE developmental talent on this particular set of TV’s which is good to see. They get plenty of work even though they aren’t ready for WWE TV just yet.

– “Will WWE do more Rivalry DVDs?” Absolutely. Another major production is scheduled for 2012 but I am not sure as to the rivalry that will be featured but the rumors that I hear are fascinating. Obviously, I hope to be involved as I was with the Bret/Shawn DVD which is a must see.
