Jim Ross has a new blog entry available on his official website where he confirms he'll be headed to my home state of West Virginia this weekend and gives his thoughts from this week's WWE NXT tapings. Below is an excerpt:
NXT Thursday night in Orlando was excellent. Great atmosphere at Full Sail University's 500 seat arena.
Impressed with NXT Champion Seth Rollins who wrestled Jinder Mahal in a title bout. Rollins continues to improve, raise his overall game and up his intensity.
Michael McGillicutty had a helluva bout with US Champion Antonio Cesaro. These are two of my favorite talents on the roster. Not wild about the McGillicutty name but the 3rd generation kid can be a player. Cesaro is a polished in ring talent who can have great bout with a multitude of wrestlers w/ varying skill levels.
Roman Reigns reminds me of a young, early day Rock. Same heritage, 6'4"-265, great presence. The kid has "it" and should be a star if he totally commits in doing so. Smart too with his Georgia Tech education.
Thought Tyson Kidd, who I feel is vastly underrated, had a stellar night vs the talented Leo Kruger.
Sarah Del Ray doing an excellent job working/coaching the Divas. IMO I was the best in ring Divas bouts Thursday night as I've seen in WWe in a while. Layla, Alicia Fox, Paige and newcomer Sasha did well.
