Jim Ross Blogs On NXT Takeover, Randy Orton Winning Royal Rumble, More


WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog on his website and here are the highlights:

On NXT Takeover:

“Watched the NXT Takeover show in my hotel room, Indigo Riverwalk, in SA on the WWE Network via my iPad. Thought it was a helluva pro wrestling TV show headlined by a classic Bobby Roode vs Shinsuke Nakamura main event that told a terrific story. Excellent booking and execution by the two talents. Nakamura’s selling was a key to the match and added the necessary drama that put the match over the top. Roode has the look and feel of a legit, main event star on any roster for any company.”

On AJ Styles vs. John Cena:

“The John Cena vs AJ Styles bout stole the show in a major way and was one of the better pro wrestling bouts that I’ve seen on TV in a good while. Enjoyed the submission theme that was utilized. Cena wins his 16th World Title tying Ric Flair’s ‘record’ which is  memorable, without question, but I’m a tenure guy and not a multiple time guy as it relates to pro wrestling titles. Cena certainly dispelled those who thought that John’s best days are over as he had one of his best ever bouts n WWE and obviously a large part of that success can be attributed to AJ Styles who again proved to be what I’ve said for months and that is AJ is the best in ring talent in the wrestling biz  for my money. Heard a pundit way that Cena was not a good athlete which is laughable.”

On Randy Orton winning Royal Rumble match:

“Surprised that Randy Orton won the Rumble match and seemingly from the feedback that I’ve been receiving the key word here is “surprise” as that seems to be what most fans needed to see Sunday night than some felt fell short of what was expected. I love surprises too but I don’t feel that the Rumble match was a let down because the rumored, usual candidates did not make a surprise appearance.”
