WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has released another blog on his JR’s BBQ website, and he discussed this past Tuesday’s episode of TNA Impact as well as Randy Orton’s scheduled return on The Highlight Reel with Chris Jericho at Battleground.
On Tuesday’s Impact:
Watched some TNA Impact Wrestling on POP TV Tuesday night and thought that they did some good things on their live show. A bit too much talking for my taste as the promos could have been just as effective by being shorter but that take applies to most in ring promos in the business IMO. If they all felt more natural and organic then I’d say ” go for it” but that’s not the case thanks to having to memorize one’s lines which is often times all too apparent. Nice, impactful debut for Moose in TNA Tuesday night. Good positioning on the “live” broadcast. Moose will be in Oklahoma this weekend wrestling Saturday and Sunday nights. I think that this talent has massive potential. All in all, I enjoyed Impact Wrestling and will continue to do so if they provide me with a plenty of in ring action.
On Randy Orton’s Battleground return:
I can only assume that Randy Orton will be involved in some level of physicality at Battleground in the Jericho Highlight Reel, but that’s merely speculation. Why bring The Viper back to only talk Lesnar and Summer Slam without giving the audience something memorable to take with them?
