JR Blogs On 1000th RAW, NXT A Disappointment, Undervalued Talent



Jim Ross is back with another blog this week. Here are a few highlights.

JR At RAW 1,000th: “I never planned to not attend the celebration, as I prefer to look at it, as RAW1000 is a milestone that I’m proud to say that I was able to contribute to beginning in 1994 when I first appeared on the broadcast.”

“Even though I do not know my exact assignment at RAW1000, I assure one and all that it doesn’t matter to me. Team players contribute where they are needed and determining where I’m needed isn’t my call. All I know is that I will be ‘at the game’ and ready to help the team win in any way that I can. It’s really a simple philosophy that I’ve believed in for many years.”

Does He See NXT As A Disappointment?: “Obviously not. If I did not want to contribute to WWE’s most important department, the development of new talent, then I would have passed. I BELIEVE in the Talent Development Department and honestly feel that there is no more important area within the entire WWE. Attractions sell PPV’s, Merchandise, garner TV ratings, etc. Attractions are main event level superstars with staying power and they are not developed in a few months and sometimes not in a few years. Many of today’s fans have short memories about that process or they simply have never experienced it. Bottom line, some fans have little patience and they feel as if they are ‘owed’ more than they are.”

Most Undervalued Talent In WWE: “I’m not sure, it’s a subjective question, but if I had to make a list it would include William “Don’t call me Steve, Dusty” Regal. An excellent broadcaster, skilled in ring talent and a fantastic teacher to the developmental kids. ”
