Jim Ross is back with another blog. Here are some highlights.
WWE NXT: NXT is an exciting new brand for WWE. The evolution of NXT is just getting started but the future is bright from my perspective. The TV shows are improving each taping session and will continue to do so if we all do our respective jobs.
Working on WWE NXT: My work in talent development is enjoyable albeit challenging and it allows me to contribute to the future growth of WWE which is important to me. I’m especially proud of the teaching and development being done at FCW in Tampa by a hard working, dedicated crew.
The Rock Challenging For The WWE Title: So @TheRock is going to attempt to win the WWE Title at the 2013 Summerslam, right? Firstly, don’t bet against that occurring although there are no guarantees in this genre. Secondly, I’d love to see Rock vs. CM Punk as I feel that Punk’s style and aggression would push The Rock and take the ‘Great One’ out of his comfort zone. World class athletes like @TheRock are at their best when they are pushed to the next level much like Austin and Rock did each other back in the day.
WWE ’13’s Attitude Era: Excited about rejoining @Jerry Lawler on the Attitude Era portion of the new, WWE13 video game out this fall. Pre orders are reportedly going really well and more info on pre-ordering can be had at many sites including THQ.com. King and I had a lot of fun recreating our commentary from the Attitude Era of which you will readily hear.
CM Punk Reforming The nWo: A follower on @JRsBBQ on Twitter asked if I thought @CMPunk would reform the nWo. I have no idea if this topic is any thing more than speculation based on my friend Kevin Nash having some fun with the subject on Twitter. Bottom line is that I don’t know but I would be surprised if Punk headed up a faction at this time because he seems to be such a solitary man. The only way that I see that ever happening at this stage of Punk’s career is if he had complete control on who comprised the group.
