Jim Ross has a new blog entry available on his official website. Below are some highlights:
–What’s going to happen at Raw 1000? I honestly don’t know and if I did I would not spoil any surprises. Am I scheduled to be there? Not at this time. That’s the truth. However, it would be a nice opportunity to see many old friends.
-When people ask why certain wrestlers aren’t getting what some fans feel that the said wrestlers deserve, I ask what have those wrestlers done lately to make themselves better? If one thinks that only appearing on TV and live events plus working out and tanning is all the investment a talent needs to make to become viable then think again. I’ve encouraged countless talents to watch DVD’s to study the greats of the business and to pick up on the small things that can still be utilized today. Some nod yes and never follow through.
–What are the dangers of calling matches right at ringside with the announce table right next to the ring. Other than the obvious of becoming a landing pad for large men, one thing that is unsettling is to have another’s blood squirt across one’s face after they have hit an artery in their head. Another’s warm, blood squirting across the face is not a “perk’ ” of the job.
–Do I enjoy being involved with the new, NXT? Absolutely. I’ve always enjoyed working with young talents who want to get better daily and who want to main event a WrestleMania. Not overly interested in those that merely want a spot on the main roster. ‘Special teams’ players are important to any team but easier to find. ‘Starters’ that want to compete and win ‘Super Bowls’ are a different animal.
