Jim Ross Discusses Atmosphere At Final Florida Championship Wrestling TV Taping

Jim Ross posted a brief blog entry on his official website where he commented on last night’s final Florida Championship Wrestling taping. Below is an excerpt:

The atmosphere Thursday night at the last FCW TV taping was intimate and exciting from the sell out, turn away crowd.

As much as the crowd delivered the kids delivered more. I’m amazed at the teamwork and team spirit these young talents possess. It’s refreshing and motivating even for an old veteran like me.

Lots of kids stood out. Rollins, Steamboat, Cesaro, Ohno, Bo Dallas, Bray Wyatt, Brad Maddox, Ascension, Big E Langston, Jason Jordan, Paige, and several others who I’m sure that I’m inadvertently omitting while doing this on the fly from 35,000 feet.

I like the team of Jake Carter and Cory Graves. Their match w/ CJ Parker and Mike Dalton was really nice.

Loved the @thedeanambrose vs @realkingregal bout that had a shockingly, real, physical conclusion. That match was on hour three and will likely air in July but I’m not sure of any of the air dates. When FCW’s TV show runs its course on the Brighthouse Network in Florida, FCW will be replaced by NXT. I’m unaware if the rebranded NXT will air on WWE.com ( doubtful) but will air outside the USA where NXT is currently airing.

I had a blast blast broadcasting w/ WWE HOFer Dusty Rhodes as you will hear if you are able to assess the show which many watch on You Tube.

With FCW in the rear view mirror we turn our attention to the next, NXT taping at Full Sail University in Orlando next Thursday June 14.

    I guess it's safe to say the new NXT will begin showing on TV in the fall season. If WWE doesn't show it on WWE.com, they'll likely upload it to Youtube. The new NXT has too much buzz around it right now to not show it on an official WWE source.

    From what I'm getting from this, seems like it will start after FCW ends in Florida so in mid-July.

    I hope the new season of nxt starts fairly quickly after fcw tv ends that's what i am hoping happens anyway

      You're going to love the new format.
