Jim Ross Blogs On Jimmy Snuka’s Passing, WWE UK Championship Tournament, More


WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted his latest blog online. You can check out some highlights below:

On Jimmy Snuka’s passing:

“Sad to hear of the passing of Jimmy Snuka due to complications with his battle with stomach cancer. The WWE Hall of Famer was a magnificent athlete with natural instincts who was a star in every area that he worked. Unfortunate that Jimmy’s passing has been affected and arguably overshadowed by the dismissed, murder charges against him. Jimmy was always a polite, professional to me and usually responded to, “How are you doing Superfly?” with “Lovely, Bruddah.”  It’s amazing as to what he accomplished in life considering that Jimmy had no formal education to speak of. Nonetheless, the allegations of murder have marred his professional legacy even though there was no trial and the charges were dropped in 2016.”    

On the WWE UK Championship tournament:

“I watched both days of the WWE’s UK tournament on the WWE Network and enjoyed both shows. I especially enjoyed the broadcast team of Michael Cole and Nigel McGuinness who were stellar both Saturday and Sunday. Enjoyed the underdog winning the tournament, the interactive and jacked up live audience, the TV production was excellent and the overall in ring product was solid and at times stellar. 19 year old Tyler Bate is the first champion and is a fine, young prospect who seems to be fundamentally sound and understanding of the basic psychology of the biz well beyond his teenage years. Pete Dunne who many thought would win the tourney is a natural villain and had a distinguished tournament. He’s another keeper IMO. Between Paul Levesque, William Regal and company this group produces great TV which would include the NXT shows.”
