Jim Ross had a new pre-Payback 2016 blog, here are some highlights
I communicated many times with Joanie over the past year or so and it was generally about Joanie talking about the fact that she knew that she had to make changes in her life even though she fully realized that the battle would not be easily won. Even Joanie realized that the solution to her issues started with her and no one else which is never eay to admit. Joanie never blamed anyone else for her troubles to me even though some people today are. These issues were far from being about her tenure in WWE, which was hugely successful by the way and, arguably, Joanie’s happiest days, but more about the personal choices that she made after leaving WWE in 2001.
on Eric Young
Good to see Eric Young stick his toe in NXT waters Thursday night at the TV tapings at Full Sail University in Florida. EY is a really good hand and can help the younger talents in NXT while always providing excellent bouts on a consistent basis whether it be on TV or at live events.
on Ric Flair calamity
Since some of you asked, I don’t have a dog in the hunt nor do I know any inside info on the latest Ric Flair calamity that occurred earlier this week in Boston’s Logan Airport. At the end of the day, I can only hope that Ric is healthy and happy with his life. Ric’s Podcast is apparently on hiatus and rumors have it that he may be thinking of moving his show to PodcastOne along with the podcasts of Steve Austin, Chris Jericho, Vince Russo and yours truly.
Reigns over AJ in a match that will pleasantly surprise some naysayers. I expect some outside shenanigans to accompany this bout. I expect AJ to rock the house in his first WWE, PPV main event.
Charlotte squeaks out a quality win over Nattie and I assume that WWE will feel obligated to do one spot with Flair and the Hitman.
Mr. McMahon will decide who runs RAW between son Shane and daughter Stephanie which I see coming down to a ‘competition’ of some sort so as to extend the storyline.
