Jim Ross revealed in his latest blog that he will be at Sunday’s WWE TLC pay-per-view. “Quick blog with a few random thoughts before leaving for Houston for WWE’s TLC this Sunday night.” You can read his blog in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
On going to FCW this week: The recent trip to Tampa was productive. Wednesday’s promo class is always one of my favorite exercises. Dusty Rhodes, WWE HOF’er, conducts this all important class which lasts about two hours with the students doing extemporaneous promos usually ranging from a minute to 90 seconds on a variety of topics. In today’s sizzle laden presentation of the genre, being able to verbally express one’s self is imperative to make it to the very top level within the biz where the biggest earnings potential resides. I conducted a class on financial planning for the group on Wednesday prior to them going to Orlando for a live event.
On Taz’s new school: Sounds like old friend Taz has come up with an intriguing idea to train wrestlers who have a couple of years experience on how they might get to the next level of their careers. I like the fact that the classes are small which really allows for hands on treatment and training. Check out http://www.teamtaz13.com. If you are serious about getting your career moving then I would certainly give Taz’ new Dojo legit consideration. I wish Taz well on this endeavor as he’s a natural born ‘coach.’
On Sunday’s TLC PPV: I assume that Michael Cole, the voice of WWE, and WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler will comprise a part of the broadcast team but I have no idea who will joining them. Will it be CM Punk, Josh Mathews, Matt Striker or Todd Grisham? Who knows, WWE might use a 4 man booth to make the show sound really different.
