Jim Ross Blog: Cedric Alexander and Kota Ibushi, WWE/LGBT content, Ambrose on Stone Cold Podcast – “The next time Lesnar and Ambrose are booked together should be most interesting”
Jim Ross had a new blog, here are some highlights
on Damien Sandow TNA Debut
Head scratcher…if Damien Sandow is a surprise participant on the live episode of Impact Wresting Thursday night on Pop TV then why was his interview with Rolling Stone released in advance of that event? I know that it will “create more news” and a bit of a buzz but wrestling fans love surprises and this press release, in essence, doesn’t do the surprise element any favors. Nonetheless, Aaron Stevens aka Damien Sandow is a talented performer and will be a welcomed addition to the TNA team. Good signing.
on Cedric Alexander and Kota Ibushi
Really nice bout on WWE Cruiserweight Classic Tournament Wednesday night with Cedric Alexander and Kota Ibushi. Alexander is especially an attractive prospect for WWE as he speaks English which gives him the slight nod over Ibushi IMO. Don’t get me wrong, Ibushi is a young star in the making and WWE would be well served to sign them both and likely will. Paul Levesque won’t allow these two talents to slip by him for sure. Both would make great additions to NXT especially in light of the recent call ups from NXT to the main roster.
on LGBT content
I find it refreshing that @WWE is gong to likely include LGBT content in future storylines. It’s the world that we live in and all people of all races, colors, creed, religious persuasion and sexual orientation should be respected. That’s about as political as you will hear me get in this space.
on Dean Ambrose Calling Brock Lesnar Lazy
Interesting comments made this week by Dean Ambrose and by Daniel Bryan regarding Brock Lesnar being “lazy.” If true, and I’m not saying that it is as I’m not around Lesnar whatsoever, could it be because Brock is residing the dreaded “comfort zone” which is an area that adversely affects professional careers in many fields and certainly negatively affects relationships of all kinds?
The next time Lesnar and Ambrose are booked together should be most interesting.
