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 The Hardys departing from Impact Wrestling and the brothers possibly going back to WWE. Ross shot down the rumors that the Hardys and Drew Galloway decided to not re-sign with Impact Wrestling because of the sale of the company to Anthem. “No matter the reason, it’s inexcusable for any company to allow these high-level negotiations to crash and burn as they did. Fundamentally, to present talents with new contracts essentially only a few days from the TV tapings isn’t good business from my perspective. The two most vital elements in any company promoting any combat sport, including pro wrestling, is talent and television. If either one of those two elements are missing, then failure isn’t far behind. For Impact Wrestling, what was more important than stabilizing the existing talent roster especially the top level of the roster for which Matt and Jeff Hardy and Galloway were a part?”
He stated that he does have a heightened level of optimism for Impact due to Jeff Jarrett returning to the company and the people that he has chosen to help write creative for the company. He stated that WWE would likely be stronger if The Hardys return to the company due to it being their home base. “Matt and Jeff’s departure opens the door for some other, hungry talents to seize their opportunity to become main event players.”
Ross also talked about Seth Rollins wrestling Triple H at WrestleMania 33. He said that this storyline is the most intense and personal issue that the WWE is booking right now. He believes that this match should be a slobber knocker and that there’s no reason why this match can’t be the match of the night in Orlando.
