Jim Ross Shoots On The Brand Split In WWE

Published by:

Jim Ross is one insider who knows how the WWE works. He was with the company off and on for close to 20 years. So when he gives his opinion most people listen. Recently the World Wrestling Entertainment started a new brand extension or split if you want to call it. You have the Raw brand which is lead by Stephanie Mcmahon and Mick Foley. And you have the Smackdown Brand lead by Daniel Bryan and Shane Mcmahon. Both shows will be live every Monday and Tuesday night.

There is lot of people who have mixed reviews of the brand split, especially the internet wrestling community who think that it probably won’t work. Also a lot of fans concern is over the Championship and that having two Champions waters down the meaning of the title (Ric Flair had that view as well). ┬áIn this excerpt from the Ross Report Jim gives his side of it. He lets everyone know that he was involved with the first brand split and what he thinks is the difference between now and then.

Good Ol’ Jr is very insightful with his view. He likes the idea and thinks that Smackdown will be much better for reasons outlined in the interview. He really believes that this is an opportunity for all the talent to really take advantage of the spotlight. He thinks that this is the way to find the next big star. He also lays out what he thinks the rules should be to make the brand split work.

Jim Ross Shoots On Dean Ambrose Being World Champion

Even though Jim has been out of the WWE for quit some time, he still is in tune with the product and watches it weekly. Not only was the color commentator if not the greatest color commentator the sport has ever seen he also has a mind for the business. If anyone besides Vince Mcmahon could run a wrestling company I believe it would be Jim Ross.

Recently in the WWE it has undergone some huge changes within a small amount of time. There champion Roman Reigns was dethroned of his WWE title at “Money In The Bank” by Seth Rollins. He was beat cleanly by the heel. Then as Seth was celebrating. The Money in The Bank Winner Dean Ambrose came out and cashed in his contract for a WWE title match and he won. All three members of the Shield was WWE champion in the same night.

Even though Dean is over with the fans, he has had some set backs this year. His match with Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania poorly booked him and even though Brock should’ve won the match it shouldn’t have been so much of a squash match. It made Dean look very weak.

With that behind him though he is now the current face of the WWE product. Good Ol’ Jr gives his thoughts on Dean Ambrose and if he should be WWE Champion. He also talks about WWE booking and if it was a wise ideal to put the title on Ambrose. It’s an interesting interview that if you get a chance you should listen to below.


Jim Cornette Shoots On Shinsuke Nakamura

Published by:

“The King Of Strong Style” Shinsuke Nakamura is the new face in NXT. Shinsuke is not new to wrestling though, in Japan at only the age of 36 he is already considered a legend and one of their greats. He has won the IWGP Heavyweight title twice, and he has been an IWGP Intercontinental Champion and a tag team champion on occasion. The IWGP title is the most prestgious wrestling title there is in Japan. To say that this guy does not bring a background full of greatness is an understatement.

Now that he is in NXT, he has already made a huge impact. In his first match in WWE’s minor league promotion (if you ask me, its best promotion). He took on the “Face of NXT” Sami Zayn. In one of the more memorable matches in the past few years, Shinsuke went on to defeat Sami in an instant classic. Now with a few wins under his belt and a promised match with the NXT Champion, Shinsuke is scheduled for a match with former NXT champ Finn Baylor.

Recently on the Ross Report, Jim Ross sat down with the king of shoots in my opinion Jim Cornette. Jim gives his thoughts on Shinsuke in the NXT. He also tells what he thinks will happen once Nakamura gets called up to the main roster. To give you a hint, Jim is not so sure that Vince will know what to do with “The King of Strong Style”. It’s a good shoot, let us know what you think.
