Here are some highlights from Jim Ross’ latest blog on jrsbarbq.com…
– Some internet pundits rip 2 hour wrestling shows on a regular basis and many of them also identify the problem. Arguably, there isn’t enough main event depth to satisfactory fill two hours of in ring wrestling each week. Some weeks are obviously better than others but the depth issue still exists. New stars have to evolve and every individual on every roster has to be utilized in a way to accentuate their strengths what ever those strengths may be.
For example, many of the Divas could probably be utilized more efficiently therefore eventually meaning more to the viewer.
As I have mentioned before, there seems to be a significant gap between the established main event players to the talents who are a work in progress to the inexperienced, new wrestlers. There are three distinct levels of talents, as I see it, and obviously the goal is to get more individuals to find residency at the main event level.
– Jerry Lawler’s run for Mayor of Memphis is going to be challenging for my friend because there will be candidates who will raise plenty of funds to buy ample radio and TV ads to help their cause. Hopefully Jerry will be able to get enough media exposure to assist him in garnering the votes needed to win. Also, if these other candidates feel that the King will be an easy target in a debate they might want to reconsider that ill advised theory. Jerry Lawler can damn sure talk and has the ability to make viable points. Don’t take my word for it, simply You Tube some of his old, Memphis TV interviews.
– It appeared that Dolph Ziggler took a giant step forward as Friday Night Smackdown left the air as the young man seemingly entered into an issue with Rey Mysterio. I’m interested in seeing this pending rivalry develop. It’s time for Ziggler to hunt with the “big dogs.”
– The next young talent on SD to move up seems to be John Morrison who made it clear he wants an opportunity at the World Title sooner than later.
