WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry over at his website where he gives his thoughts on Kevin Owens as well as if WWE FastLane is a “throwaway PPV”.
Ross on Kevin Owens: “I think that Kevin Owens is going to be an excellent champion for NXT and he, along with a handful of others are going to be WWE ready much sooner than later. WWE signing some talents with experience from the Indies, etc and then refining their game in Orlando has been a strategic move.”
Ross on if WWE Fastlane is a “throwaway PPV”: “Someone emailed me at our Q&A’s here that they thought that thee WWE Fast Lane PPV was merely going to be a throwaway show & and I couldn’t disagree more or least it shouldn’t be. I’d shoot some major league angles that would lead into WM31 not unlike any major city who had big wrestling cards every month. Always build to the next show, pose more questions than answers and get down and dirty with your key revenue drivers. The competition to see who is going to be in the WWE Title match at WM31 must be keen because nothing in WWE should be more important to any of the talents than being the champion. Sometimes I don’t get that feeling as unless talents are in the immediate mix for the title they rarely mention it.”
