WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated his blog and he talked about TNA improving and Brock Lesnar returning at Summerslam:
On Impact improving: TNA Impact was a much better TV show this past Thursday night on Spike but many of the in ring talking segments could have been just as successful and impactful if they had been shorter. Why pro wrestling companies feel that succinct, soundbytes and cutting to the chase are out of style is beyond me. Plus, having a talent like MVP in MULTIPLE segments only waters down the talent. Overexposure used to be a viable concern of all bookers and upper mgmt types, IE Andre, Bruno, JYD, etc, on weekly TV shows, but it doesn’t seem as if it is any longer which is fundamentally wrong.
On Brock Lesnar headlining Summerslam: I’d book Lesnar to headline Summer Slam in Los Angeles and build the card around him. Yes, I’m prepared for the onset of knee jerkers who will say that Brock is part time and that part time talents are efficient. I don’t concur and think that overexposure is running rampant in the wrestling biz and Lesnar certainly isn’t over exposed. The WWE World Champion doesn’t need to be on every TV or at every live event. That concept is antiquated.
If some fans feel that this may be too predicable, then perhaps some are over thinking a pro wrestling storyline that makes sense. Making sense when executing a story line is much more important than doing the unpredictably stupid moves to just ‘surprise’ he audience. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good pro wrestling surprise as much as the next fan but NOT at the expense of doing the right thing.
