Jim Ross posted his latest blog at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
WWE releasing Justin Roberts:
“Shocked to hear of the release of WWE ring announcer Justin Roberts. I admit that I have no information as to why but Justin was always a professional, polite young man who loved his WWE job and did a great job ring announcing. No one will ever top The Fink but Justin carried himself well, had a great appearance, and seemed reliable. I treat people as they treat me and Justin Roberts always treated me respectfully and as a true professional. I’d guess that the Phoenix native won’t have any issues finding work. I wish Justin the best.”
Dean Ambrose on Monday night’s RAW:
“Dean Ambrose had a good night. His persona is growing but the constant referring to Ambrose as the ‘Lunatic Fringe’ is borderline overkill. Nonetheless, Ambrose is evolving nicely ever since the spotlight was taken off Roman Reigns due to Reigns surgery.”
Big Show and Mark Henry double teaming Rusev:
“WWE has done a nice job of developing Rusev as a potentially, main event heel but having two ‘faces take out one heel including another knockout did not work for me. It felt illogical when I first saw it and it still felt illogical when I went back and watched it again.”
His “Hell In A Cell” feature for FOX Sports:
“Working on a HIAC feature for @FoxSports website and plan on talking to Mick Foley later today about it. Without question, it seems that HIAC match in Pittsburgh where Foley took flight has, arguably, become the most memorable match in WWE history. Had a great talk with Mick Foley about his memories of that night and hope to hear from ‘Taker if time permits.”
