Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry, here are the highlights…
On WWE Tribute to the Troops: Not sure how many fans realize the amount of work that WWE puts in to produce the Tribute to the Troops TV show as they did this week. The most important broadcast the company does this year will air on NBC on December 28. These remote shoots create an amazing workload on the WWE TV production folks, among others, and their efforts should not go unrecognized.
On WWE’s Latest Tryout Camp: WWE starting a new tryout camp today in Orlando at the WWE Performance Center. I miss those opportunities to mentor and communicate with young talents who want to live their dream just as I did. Hopefully everyone attending will report in magnificent physical condition and pay attention. The drills are essential to master and to not replicate previously corrected mistakes in technique. Best of luck to all involved.
On William Regal: Yes, William Regal has a great eye for wrestling talent plus he is a terrific instructor. Any company would better themselves with more William Regal’s associated with them. I’m blessed to call him my friend and am thankful that I had an opportunity to help him sort out his life back in the day. Regal is a huge asset for WWE that often goes unnoticed to the average fan.
On AJ Styles: Will WWE sign AJ Styles? I’d have zero clue on that one but I would say it’s a long shot at best. Not because AJ isn’t an outstanding talent, because he is, but I get the feeling WWE wants to create new stars and those new stars are going to come from the WWE Performance Center exclusively.
On Dolph Ziggler: Is WWE “punishing” Dolph Ziggler? No. If WWE wanted to “punish” Ziggler they would simply not use him on TV and allow him to fade into obscurity. More fans should use their common sense on this one. Dolph is hugely talented and, generally, athletes who are on Ziggler’s level overcome any perceived obstacles. The key is to not check out and to keep turning heads.
