JR Blog: Chimes In On Charlotte/Paige controversy, Predictions For Survivor Series Tournament, Ronda Rousey, James Storm


Jim Ross had a pre Survivor Series blog, here are some highlights

on Charlotte/Paige controversy
Lots of dialog amongst fans and media regarding the use of the late, Reid Flair’s name Monday night on the closing segment of RAW by his sister Charlotte and her challenger Paige as they looked to add a personal issue element to their title match that will take place this Sunday in Atlanta at the Survivor Series on the WWE Network.

My general rule of thumb is that most promotions are usually better off staying away from using someone’s death, religion and politics in a pro wrestling storyline. I find it counterproductive in this situation that more people seem to be talking about the late, Reid Flair, who I knew his entire life, than they are about he actual title bout between Charlotte and Paige. Nonetheless I am very much eagerly anticipating that bout for which I have high expectations.

on Title Tournament Predictions
Thinking that it will be Reigns vs Ambrose Sunday in the finals of the WWE World Title Tournament with one of them ‘stabbing’ his friend in the back. I’d prefer it was Reigns joining the Authority as I think a long association with the Authority would position Reigns perfectly for a fan favorite turn late next year. However, depending ont he execution of that piece of business I have no major issue seeing Ambrose in that Authority Champ role.

on Ronda Rousey
Anyone who truly believes that @RondaRousey losing to Holly Holm last Saturday night is going to do irreparable harm to Ronda’s career is someone I don’t want doing my taxes or giving me directions. Ronda’s situation provides UFC with an amazing opportunity to tell Rousey’s story of regrouping and ‘getting back on the horse.’ Rousey vs. Holm at UFC 200 would be a fight I’d love to see in person.

on James Storm
Good to hear that James Storm was back at NXT TV tapings in Orlando this week but to the best of my knowledge the cowboy hasn’t signed with WWE as of yet. Storm can help WWE in a multitude of ways IMO.
