Jim Ross Blogs On Ex-NFL Talent Signing With WWE, Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar & More

Jim Ross has a new blog entry available on his official website. Here are some highlights.

On former NFL talent signed to WWE: A couple of the new, former NFL linemen that WWE has signed to begin training have lost well over 100, perhaps closer to 200 combined pounds to get in better condition and to be able to present themselves better on TV.

WWE Tryout Camp: WWE will conduct a closed, invitation only try out camp next Monday-Wednesday in the Los Angeles area that I’m anxious to attend. The recruiting of new, trainees for WWE Development hasn’t been this aggressive in years or so it seems.

Match to steal the show at SummerSlam: I wonder what bout at SummerSlam will slip up on us and ‘steal the show?’ Perhaps Jericho vs. Ziggler or even Rey vs Miz has a shot. Based on what I’ve seen on WWE TV the past several weeks, no one has been better in the ring or out of it than Daniel Bryan.

If he will broadcast at SummerSlam this Sunday: Just because I’m regularly asked, no…I have no plans on broadcasting at SummerSlam this Sunday but will be in LA enjoying the show. Obviously things could change and I’d need maybe 5 minutes notice to be ready.

Lesnar/Triple H match: I expect the WWE Title bout to close the show at SummerSlam but there is no doubt that the HHH-Lesnar encounter has many fans talking. I expect HHH and Brock to be physical, straight forward, and a match that will challenge each man’s will. It’s a distinctly personal issue that features two of the most physically driven men to ever compete in WWE. The Game has plenty of motivation in this personal issue but I wonder if that will be enough to handle Lesnar who has strategically monitored his every step on TV while building viable anticipation for this match and what he plans to do. This one might even be ‘Bowling Shoe Ugly’ in the sense that I don’t think that it will be artistically appealing but it will be intense, guttural, and smash mouth.
