WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry over at his website where he gives his thoughts on various topics. During the blog, Ross commented on WWE furthering AJ Styles’ storyline with Shane McMahon on SmackDown Live this week. He enjoyed Styles’ performance on the show and has no issue with Styles facing McMahon at WrestleMania 33. “AJ’s greatness will shine through in Orlando on April 2 and Shane’s alpha male personality will push him to be better than he likely actually is. This will end up being a better booking than many perceive plus it was, as the creative worked its way out, the best available option for, arguably, the best in ring talent in the world, AJ Styles, which is a whole other story.” Ross stated that he looks forward to the match and believes that it could steal the show at Mania. He said that he finds that it could well be ill advised to try to hard to make Styles the old school villain in this match. He noted that it’s not happening with today’s fans. He noted that the good news is that Styles has a personal issue as the heel.
Ross brought up the Christopher Daniels – Adam Cole match at ROH’s 15 Anniversary PPV. He noted that the PPV set records for the FITE app and wanted to congratulate both ROH and FITE for that accomplishment. He enjoyed the match from start to finish and thought that it delivered as the main event. “The show closer had to follow EVERYTHING that preceded them which was no small feat if you saw the PPV.”
Finally, Ross teased some news regarding the NJPW – AXS TV relationship. “Hoping to hear more good news regarding the potential of an enhanced relationship between AXS TV and NJPW soon. More exciting days between these two organizations could be on their way.”
