Jim Ross has posted his latest blog online. Check it out below:
On NXT's latest taping: "We had one of our best nights of TV production ever at NXT on Thursday while taping five, one hour broadcasts of NXT. The marathon took less than four hours which is a credit to all involved on the production and organizational side notwithstanding the talents themselves. There were some excellent matches taped including one show that was essentially a tribute to the 'Clash of Champions' TV series where every bout was a title bout. Really solid William Regal vs. Kassius Ohno bout among many other matches that stood out. Loved Antonio Cesaro vs. Adrian Neville. Wade Barrett vs. Bo Dallas rocked as well. The Shield also made an impact at FullSail Arena. I just don't see how any true fan of the biz couldn't enjoy an evening at NXT."
On Big E Langston: "Big E Langston had an impressive night and I look for 'E' to have a memorable 2013 in WWE. Hugely strong, highly intelligent, athletic with good feet, Big E simply needs experience to become what WWE needs from him and that is to be a break through star ala The Shield."
On Brad Maddox: "Good work at the announce desk by Tony Dawson, Tom Phillips, William Regal and Brad Maddox. Maddox could evolve to be very good in the color commentator role as he has a natural gift of gab, good timing and is a bright kid. I always said that he reminded me of the late, Eddie Gilbert while watching Maddox in the ring down in talent development. Michael Cole and I enjoy working with the young broadcasters who are getting plenty of reps in NXT."
On tomorrow's Raw: "HUGE RAW Monday in Philly headlined by both The Rock and John Cena in the house live. The redemption vs. legacy tag lines are all well and good and while being accurate never discount the fact that both men are hugely competitive and accustomed to being 'the man.' They are Alpha Males of which is always interesting to observe. I've often wondered how Rock and Cena would have co-existed during parts of the Attitude Era especially when one throws in an element like @steveaustinBSR. It would have made for an interesting locker room. These two men travel in different circles and have never been in the WWE grind long enough together to build the unique and often times unspoken bond that many performers have. Call me naive if you choose but I see two, strong willed men who will try to show up the other on April 7 when finesse inside the ring ropes won't be acceptable to them or the fans."
On Triple H: "Anyone who thinks that Triple H is ready to stop wrestling and spend full time in the administration end of WWE is insane. That's what's at stake with HHH vs. Lesnar at WM29. I can tell you from experience that working in the office at WWE had many perks and rewards but the constant flow of seemingly endless meetings and the long hours day after day were challenging to say the least. Nothing was better for me, personally, than to be sitting at ringside in an arena full of WWE fans which blew the corporate life away. I have to believe that the Cerebral Assassin feels the same way. When his time comes he will know when to step away but that time isn't now plus guys like him hope if for nothing less than to go out on their own terms which very few wrestlers are able to do. I'd also guess that, even though they might not admit it, that Lesnar and HHH neither feel that their match isn't the main event of WM29. Same goes for Taker vs. Punk. Personally, I wouldn't have it any other way. One always wants their top talents to believe that their match is THE main event whether it's positioned that way or not."
