WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross recently updated the Q&A section of his website, JRsBarBQ.com, fielding questions from pro wrestling fans on a wide variety of relevent topics.
In his latest update, highlights of which can be seen below, “Good Ole’ J.R.” addresses the fact that WWE has been having Shane McMahon run RAW the past few weeks despite the fact that he lost in the Hell In A Cell match against The Undertaker at WrestleMania 32.
Ross also touches on topics such as Chris Benoit in the WWE Hall Of Fame, the potential he feels wrestling veteran Sami Zayn has in WWE, rumors that AJ Styles works stiff and more.
On why WWE didn’t have Shane McMahon beat Undertaker at WrestleMania if they were going to have him run RAW anyways:
“Don’t have an answer for you…sorry. It’s obviously not that big an issue to WWE or they wouldn’t have forsaken their top Wrestlemania stipulation after 24 hours. Dave Meltzer and I address this matter on this week’s Ross Report Podcast.”
On Sami Zayn’s potential in WWE and rumors that AJ Styles has been working too stiff:
“Zayn is a main eventer in waiting and he’s likely not going to be waiting long. Talented, dedicated pro. BTW working stiff isn’t a crime but working in a careless manner is. Don’t believe all that you read or ‘hear.'”
On if he thinks Chris Benoit will be, or should be, inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame:
“Old question with the same answer…if Chris could chime in I feel that he would not want to be inducted due to it becoming a distraction and all about the final days of his life and not about his in ring contributions.”
On what it would take for another brand split to work in WWE:
“The full and total commitment by upper management to pull the trigger. It won’t work unless the brand split stays clean IMO.”
