Jim Ross Blog: Steve Austin Injury, Becky Lynch Impresses, Lucha Underground, Ryback Reaction – “Tom Brady isn’t going to work for what his center’s earning”


Jim Ross had a new blog later in the week this week, here are some highlights

on Ryback
I read Ryback’s take on the matter and his thoughts on how WWE talents should be paid. While I support and encourage Ryback expressing himself if that is something that he absolutely feels is necessary to do but I do not concur with paying every one equally and on a salary, in essence. Talents have different skill sets and they all bring something unique to the team and some of those contributions are simply worth more money than the contributions of others. In the NFL, Quarterbacks are paid more than centers, for example, and we can all agree that it would be hard for QB’s to function without a good center but they step up to different pay windows as they should.

Tom Brady isn’t going to work for what his center’s earning.

on Steve Austin
Steve Austin is not doing the next post RAW ‘podcast’ with Shane McMahon because he’s not quite up to traveling after having major, rotator cuff surgery a few days ago. Steve is in a very restrictive sling on his right arm and only got the stitches removed from his shoulder a day or two ago. There is no doubt that Mick Foley will do a stellar job going one on one with Shane in what should be a infotaining piece of business. Austin went into WM32 with a slight tear in his right shoulder but it completely tore on the first punch with which Steve nailed Rusev.

on Lucha Underground
The Lucha Underground show on Wednesday night was a memorable broadcast thanks in large part to the women’s match which was sparked by the performance of @SexyStarAAA. Sexy Star had a helluva night and the show was well produced as it’s certainly not your Grandpa’s wrestling, TV show. I like the somewhat campy nature of the concept that will grow on most fans who are looking for something different but still want it to feature wrestling.

on Smackdown
Watching Smackdown Thursday night and continue to be impressed with Becky Lynch’s presence in the ring and her overall skill set. If she keeps her foot on the gas pedal and can avoid the normal, pro wrestler pitfalls such as injuries, personal issues, getting lazy and refusing to accept personal responsibility fo one’s actions, Ms Lynch will be headlining many events in the future for WWE.
