Jim Ross Blogs: The Next NXT Call-Ups, & More


Jim Ross has posted his latest blog online. Check out the highlights:

On the next NXT star to get called up to WWE: “Who’s the NXT big star to matriculate from developmental to a main, WWE roster? No one knows for sure. No one. Too many variables involved in the situation to adequately answer to the satisfaction of any one with an average IQ. However, @WWENXT has several young talents currently training that have a legit shot to make it to the next level. Many don’t want to hear this as it’s not as exotic a story as the” mysterious, powers that be holding someone down” theory but success is largely dependent on who one sees in their mirror. Irresponsible, young wannabe stars who keep shooting themselves in the feet aren’t gonna win any races. It’s really simple…essentially “Do Right” and devote ample time outside the facility to better prepare for what hopefully will come in time. I wonder how many DVD’s the majority of the NXT talents studied this week. Hmmm.”

On the best NCAA champion to become a pro wrestler: “Best former NCAA Champion turned pro wrestler? Easy for me but I’m biased…the late, Jack Brisco who lost one match in college was a two time all American at Oklahoma State, National Champion and then had the mountainous task of being the NWA World Champion when the title was arguably the most prestigious in all the biz. No former NCAA Champion Wrestler traveled more miles and had more great matches than did “Handsome” Jack who is considered by any aficionado of the genre to be Rembrandt-like and the wrestling ring was his canvas. That means that I respectfully go with ‘BRISCO’ over Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar who I both worked closely with at WWE from their star in WWE.”
