WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry over at his website where he gives his thoughts on various topics. Here are the highlights.
On the TNA Slammiversary PPV: Watched TNA’s Slammiversary PPV Sunday night via the FITE TV App which worked perfectly on our smart TV. Solid show that certainly had its moments and one that I’m happy that I bought. The talents certainly worked hard and there was no shortage of great effort which his where success in any area of life starts.
On Billy Corgan investing in TNA: Speaking of TNA, it has been reported that my old friend Billy Corgan, of Smashing Pumpkins fame, is investing in a minority ownership steak in TNA Impact Wrestling. Hopefully, Billy’s investment will help the ailing brand who’s trying to build their brand on a less than advantageous tv network and on what should be a soon to be relocated time slot due to Smackdown going LIVE on Tuesday nights on the USA Network. Billy is a smart businessman who loves pro wrestling and I wish him and TNA all the success that they can find.
On rumors of WWE running two PPV events per month: If the rumored plans for WWE to run two, brand specific PPV Special’s monthly on the WWE Network after the brand separation are true, then that tells me that WWE is serious about keeping the brands separate which is the number one thing that I outlined as needing to occur for the spilt to have a chance to work.
