Jim Ross has a new blog entry available on his official website. Below are some highlights:
-BTW...Heyman mentioning Bruno Sammartino was cool. Any discussion about the WWE Title can't realistically take place without mentioning Bruno. I'd love to see Bruno inducted in the WWE HOF in 2013 in his house, Madison Square Garden, along with Bob Backlund, Mick Foley, among others that are very deserving.
-What about Lawrence Taylor or Regis Philbin for the honorary, "Celeb Wing' for the annual soiree to be held this year in MSG? Let the debate and speculation begin.
-It feels like positive changes are in play in WWE in what feels to be a definite, transitional period. There's nothing wrong with being in a transitional period by the way. Lots of talent who have been groomed for main event opportunities are now being placed in the 'on deck circle' or so it seems. Their own, personal desire to take the next step isn't all about WWE but, more often than not, the people that these individuals see in the mirror. By refusing to accept mediocrity and pushing, pulling, scratching and clawing through the clutter one increases their odds of making it. Granted the odds of becoming a bona fide main event performer in WWE are long to begin with but diligence and working through adversity (I know of what I speak on this one) greatly increases one's chances for success. I'd almost compare today's WWE to a major college athletic team or a pro franchise who is rebuilding around young, talented athletes, plus a few incumbents, who need to continue to push themselves in all phases of their game and not settle. Athletes who reside in their insulated 'nests' IE their comfort zones are problems that must be either solved or eliminated.
-This transition is a long term fix but if the course is steered week in and week out the results will be the development of several talents who can add 'new' to broadcast and live event presentations.
