The latest from Jim Ross...
- Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry, here are the highlights…
On The Shield: Hoping that the Shield stay together at Sunday's Payback event in Chicago. With WWE woefully low on top heroes those three can and will continue to grow into their expanded, main event level roles but are they ready to do so solo today? Nope. But they can get there if they steer the course. A hot, protagonist faction is marketable and the longer they can go forward as a unit as they are currently being booked the hotter one of more will be when they turn. Some have speculated that Roman Reigns will defect on Sunday but I hope not. Patience is needed here but the pro wresting business isn't known for it's patience these days or so it seems.
On Cena vs. Wyatt: It will be interesting to see how the Bray Wyatt vs. John Cena match plays out in Chicago. It might be a great time for Wyatt to score a major victory and if he does so I'm curious as to how he gets it done. That outcome and how it is executed will speak volumes as to WWE's long term plans for the third generation talent.
On His Recent Talk With MVP: Had a great Podcast visit with Impact Wrestling's MVP Tuesday night and we talked about, among many topics, his 9 1/2 years in prison and a great deal about Chris Benoit who MVP traveled with extensively in WWE back in the day. Fascinating and compelling stuff. Again, on the home page of the site you will find who will be appearing on the Ross Report Podcast and when.
On His Boxing Commentary Debut: I had a great time in El Paso at Fort Bliss broadcasting Golden Boy Promotions boxing event Monday night that aired on Fox Sports 1. It was a new experience for me professionally and one that I enjoyed. The feedback has been largely positive even from the established boxing community. Getting back into the groove after a somewhat long layoff on Monday Night TV wasn't as difficult as I perceived that it might be. We signed a one fight deal with @GoldenBoyBoxing and @FoxSports1 so, for those asking, I don't know what the future holds as it relates to more boxing broadcasts but we're open to it. I went into the weekend with only one booking it relates to boxing so if I end up doing more fights then it will be a bonus. Time will tell. The highlight of the boxing adventure Monday night was seeing the smile on the faces of the men and women from the U.S. Army, many of who just returned from a one year tour of duty in Afghanistan.
