WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with another blog over on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights:
– After Raw Monday night in New Jersey’s Meadowlands, I’m heading to WWE HQ to do an extensive sit down interview for Mick Foley’s DVD which is due to be released in 2013. Also going to do some work on a Greatest Rivalry DVD of which I know little about other than it will address rivalries featured on many of the libraries WWE owns. Looking forward to both projects.
– I’m liking the WWE Main event TV format. Enjoy the build up to the main event and the fact that it goes on early in the hour which allows plenty of time to tell a great story. It’s on ION TV Wednesday nights in the USA at 8/7 central.
– Good work being done by @wwejoshmathews and @JCLayfield on Friday night Smackdown. Unique dynamic that is a fresh sound.
– Keep an eye on Big E Langston in NXT. He has intensity that can’t be taught notwithstanding scary strength and great feet for a 280 pounder. There are no guarantees but if ‘E’ turns up the front burner and keeps chopping his share of the wood, there is no reason Big E shouldn’t make it in WWE and in a significant way. Time will tell.
