​Jim Ross Blogs On Last Night’s TNA Slammiversary PPV, The Relationship Between GFW & TNA, More


Jim Ross has posted his latest blog entry online. Check out the highlights:

On Slammiversary: “Hope TNA did well on their PPV that I did not watch due to family obligations. I know that they needed a hit and hopefully folks bought the show. Their taping schedule, while it may be good for their financial model, is a system built to never garner success. Taping so much content at one time, much of it out of sequence, etc is not the way to do business. However, if that’s the only way that TNA can afford to tape their TV show then it is what it is. I want this brand, as I do all promotions, to succeed and will continue to watch their weekly shows and pull for them but any company who thinks that they an build their brand back to being close to profitability on a network the caliber of Destination America has to be kidding themselves. It cannot be done. Most people that communicate with me can’t even see the network on their cable systems. I get it but I pay for it in a premium package so that I can watch TNA and Lucha Underground. I watch ROH generally on our local stations in OKC.”

On GFW and TNA working together: “By all reports the talents worked hard which is no surprise to me as I’ve always liked their roster. I have to be honest with you though that I couldn’t explain what a King of the Mountain match is to save my BBQ Sauce. Jeff Jarrett winning the main event surprised me and indicates that there is more coming as it relates to a working relationship between GFW and TNA. In all honestly, they need each other for various and obvious reasons. BTW, I’m happy that Mike Tenay returned to broadcast booth. Sunday night.”

On Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar: “Smart of WWE to allow Seth Rollins to get some steam versus Brock Lesnar last week and the smart money is on Rollins needing/getting more ‘heat’ between tonight and Battleground on July 19. Lesnar won’t get another beat down but Rollins can’t be beat down by Lesnar between now and the St Louis event either. I still think that Wrestlemania Texas is the right spot for Lesnar to win back the WWE World Title if the story is properly told.”
