Jim Ross Blogs – NXT Stars On RAW, Flair’s Health, NFL/WWE


Jim Ross posted a new blog yesterday, here are the highlights…

On NXT stars possibly appearing on RAW: “I think it would be interesting for some of the NXT talents to have a re-occurring role on RAW as it would help promote the future of the WWE which is the @WWENetwork. If fans can see what they are missing by not watching NXT on the Network they may be more inclined to invest the $9.99 month subscription fee. NXT was the best WWE produced TV of the week last week in my opinion.”

On Ric Flair’s health: “Heard Ric Flair was in the hospital for some minor surgeries IE not considered life threatening. I’ve been told that Ric’s issues were kidney related but that is merely a ‘source says’ matter and speculation but which might indicate a kidney stone issue or something of that nature. Nonetheless, I hope Ric gets better soon. I haven’t talked to him in months but still have great memories of our time on the road together. Speaking of Flair, his daughter Charlotte in NXT is special and is the best new, female in ring talent the WWE has trained in years. She’s the type of talent that a serious, women’s division, if that was desired, can be built around.”

On WWE scouting NFL players as future talent: “Nice to read where HHH is endorsing WWE finding star level NFL players to integrate into the WWE. I’ve been suggesting that for years and I hope that HHH can make it happen but it won’t be easy based on entry level, WWE pay. Same goes for major college football players who are younger and more affordable than NFL vets and whose backgrounds can be vetted thoroughly as well. Obviously, one wants to find athletes from this world who are fans and have the aptitude for the business. With all these various abuse issues occurring in the NFL I’d assume WWE will further tighten up their background checks, etc on new hires. All companies should but some companies can’t afford to do so or won’t see it as a priority because it’s just “wrestling.” Big mistake.”
