JR Blog: Christian, Kharma’s Comments, Tough Enough, More



Jim Ross is back with another blog update over on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some of the highlights from this entry:

- Tough Enough ends this Monday LIVE on USA and I hope that it returns for a 2nd season but apparently that isn’t a done deal as of yet. Personally I think the show is well produced and I really enjoyed the work of Steve Austin, Trish Stratus, Bill DeMott, and Booker T. None of the new wrestling talents, as I have mentioned, jumped off the screen at me but becoming a great, in ring talent is always a work in progress and some prospects will never grasp exactly what it is that they need to do to become a star. I’m a believer that it’s a 3-5 year maturation process before most athletes are ready to even think about headlining major events.

- After the vocal minority uproar when Christian lost the World Title on Smackdown, I mentioned that I thought that loss would likely position the skilled veteran from Ontario, not talking about Neil Young here, to become more relevant and valuable to WWE. Seems as if that has occurred as Christian, after this week’s Smackdown broadcast, is arguably the brand’s #1 villain. Of course there will be some who refuse to look at the reality of this matter and the fact that Christian has the opportunity to fill a huge gap and to be in plenty of main events at live events and on TV. Plus, Christian’s verbal skills will be better utilized as an antagonist, IMO. The bottom line is about making money and this certainly positions Christian to have the potential to capitalize on such.

- @Kharma wrote a really nice blog that cleared up the misunderstanding that some people had after her compelling, in ring promo on Monday Night Raw. Too many people acted like idiots and indicted me for all sorts of ridiculous things having to do with racism, being a misogynist, etc before knowing the facts. We lost a fair amount of business here on our website because of the matter which is regrettable.
