Jim Ross Blogs On The Hardy’s Departing From Impact Wrestling, Beth Phoenix, More


WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry over at his website. Here are the highlights:

On Beth Phoenix being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame:

“Congrats to Mrs Adam Copeland aka Beth Phoenix for her induction into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2017. What a class act, a great, in ring talent, wife and mom. I hope that her husband Adam Copeland aka Edge inducts her. Wouldn’t that be a first for a spouse to induct their better half? I also loved that Beth wrestled on her boy’s high school wrestling team. Sad to see so many bitter fans complain about Beth’s selection because Joanie Laurer wasn’t inducted. Joanie’s day will come if it is meant ot be and I for one hope that ‘Chyna” does get inducted some day. Those sentiments are immature and unnecessary.”

On The Hardy’s departing from Impact Wrestling:

“Anxious to see where the Hardy Boys wind up but make no mistake that they will have no issues finding, viable work from a variety of promoters. Matt and Jeff would be a great addition to a WWE roster specifically if WWE is committed to Hardy friendly creative for the duo who started in WWE and who I would suggest should wind up there when the time comes. This is a big loss for Impact if this goes down this way. This would be a significant “get” for WWE if WWE can close the deal. But make no mistake, with the Indy scene as it currently it, Matt and Jeff and create plenty of good paydays doing their own thing especially when it pertains to their merchandise business. Expect more talents to likely leave Impact Wrestling as that is the norm for the biz when creative and management changes are made. It’s akin to a sports team replacing their coaching staff with a new one. The new style/philosophy doesn’t always fit for all the incumbent talents. I’m encouraged that Jeff Jarrett and company will do a good job with  whatever they have to work with in Impact Wrestling.”
