WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on JRsBarBQ.com. Here are the highlights from his latest entry:
– This week the Ross Report podcast has 2013 WWE Hall of Fame inductee Trish Stratus as my guest in one of the most compelling and informative interviews we’ve had. She tells it like it is from a female’s perspective. Honest, candid content from Canada’s greatest export. The new podcast will drop late this Tuesday or by Wednesday at the very latest.
– Even though I have no plans on attending the WWE HOF Induction Ceremony at this time due to other obligations, there’s no way that I’m going to miss it on the WWE Network of which I enjoy every day. Warrior is a highly intelligent person with unique perspectives on a variety of things and his acceptance speech should be truly unique and intriguing.
Jake Roberts will have a blow away acceptance speech too. Anxious to see who inducts all these deserving folks.
– Thought TNA Lockdown was a better than many TNA PPV’s I’ve watched and was an average presentation in my eyes. I am not a fan of every match being a cage match. I’m not indicting anyone but making every match a cage match puts immense, creative pressure on the talent and there is too much “sameness.”
James Storm, Bobby Roode, Samoa Joe, Bully Ray, and Gail Kim are ‘players’ without question while others in TNA have the opportunity to be as well if they force themselves to continue to change/evolve and not to be comfortable in their current presentations.
Gail Kim is arguably the best female wrestler in the business.
As I have said, I hope ALL wrestling organizations are successful because the more talent that’s earning a good living in the biz the better for all involved.
I do think that the ‘evil administration’ story line served its purpose long ago within TNA. I find it hard to ‘dislike’ the Dixie Carter TV persona.
– RAW emanates from Memphis tonight and one has to be curious to see if Jerry Lawler survives RAW in his hometown or if he’s used to generate ‘heat’ by some up and coming TV Wrestling villain. I hear that some folks don’t fare so well in their home towns on RAW. :) Good luck, King!
