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 former RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair. He said that he doesn’t remember a more athletic, naturally gifted female in the wrestling businesses than what we are seeing from Flair. He added that her in-ring work continues to evolve and that she’s intelligently not going to reside in anyone’s comfort zone and her work helps encourage her peers to not to be ‘left behind.’ “Charlotte has the opportunity to be the biggest female star in @WWE history if she can continue to steer her course and to elevate the female division. Ms. Flair has the chance to become the @HulkHogan of her gender within @WWE over the long haul.”
WWE United States Champion Kevin Owens mentioned on his Twitter account earlier this week that he is working with a fractured thumb. Ross gave props to Owens for working injured.
“Bravo to old schooler Kevin Owens for working through a fractured thumb when many in his profession and age group would likely want time off. @FightOwensFight is a skilled throwback who’s one of my favorites in right talents in the biz today.”
