WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated the blog section of JRsbarbq.com. The following items are among the highlights.
“UFC superstar Conor McGregor sent out a mysterious Tweet Tuesday afternoon hinting that he might be retiring. Let’s cut to the chase..unless McGregor has been so touched by the tragic and unexpected death of a fighting colleague recently and has possibly lost his will to compete, this matter is likely about one the two C’s. The two C’s you ask? They would be ..cash and creative. I’d likely lay some more cash i.e. ‘cheese’ at McGregor’s alligator shoes wearing feet and make him happy.”
Ross on Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson:
“Thought the Bullet Club’s Anderson and Gallows had a nice, impactful debut. I need to see them get on a winning roll on Raw and Smackdown and for WWE to do all that they can from a creative standpoint to tell me who or what the Bullet Club is or was even if WWE can’t utilize the actual Bullet Club logo. It’s still possible to do the same faction with another name if need be.”
Ross on Sami Zayn and Chris Jericho:
“Didn’t bother me seeing the villain, Jericho, defeat the hero, Zayn. These two are merely laying foundations for the future and any top star ala Sami Zayn should be able to lose to another star’s finisher. In a smart booking universe, no one talent would be immune to that rule of thumb. Sami Zayn is a classic overachieving, underdog type wrestler who will never quit and as long as he never quits and gets his share of wins the Montreal native will evolve quite nicely.”
