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 Bill Goldberg appearing on tonight’s RAW to further his feud with Brock Lesnar.
“Big night for WWE RAW in Denver as @Goldberg will appear on the show to apparently address his pending bout with Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series. Curious as to where WWE will place this piece of business that I will certainly be watching before I record this week’s podcast. I like the alleged matchup as Goldberg vs. Lesnar is what I would term as a ‘special attraction’ bout and one that I’d likely not put on last in Toronto if that’s indeed where the return, WM20 bout goes down. My guess is that this match will be much better than many naysayers perceive and likely won’t resemble the MSG match at WM20 that Steve Austin refereed. Will it be a 5-star classic? Only time will tell but generally speaking ‘special attraction’ bouts usually aren’t show stealers, but this presentation will likely outperform expectations. I expect that Goldberg will be jeered in Toronto as Lesnar is now residing in the Saskatoon area plus Goldberg is unfortunately known as the man who ended Bret Hart’s in ring wrestling career. I still think that this will be a ‘one off’ for @Goldberg and I still see Lesnar getting his hand raised.”
Alberto Del Rio and Paige got engaged over the weekend. Ross believes that WWE takes care of their Superstars when it comes to medical care. Ross hopes that Paige can regain her health and find happiness in the pro wrestling world.
“News out of Puerto Rico where Alberto El Patron was wrestling this weekend as Paige proposed to the former WWE Champion who recently left the company to explore other options. Paige is still under her second, wellness policy violation in WWE and will reportedly undergo neck surgery this week and on the WWE’s dime if their medical experts agree that neck surgery is required. Contrary to what some may attempt to sell, WWE takes great medical care of their athletes and no one else in the business even comes close but those companies are rarely critiqued as the big dog in the yard gets most of the scrutiny. As I have mentioned, I am a big, Paige fan and hope that she can regain her health and find complete happiness inside the wrestling business which isn’t always the easiest thing to do for some talents. It would be a shame for multiple circumstances to prevent the talented Brit from achieving her full potential in the business, keeping in mind that one is only young once. Pro wrestling relationships are challenging to navigate based on what I’ve observed over the years even though some fortunately have stood the test of time. However, those seem to be fleeting based on history.”
The walls are beginning to fall on TNA after getting multiple lawsuits filed against them last week. Ross is hopeful that the promotion can get back on solid ground and hit the reset button.
“Gosh, the latest on the TNA Impact Wrestling front office situation certainly reads like a ‘mess’ and I hope that it’s not as convoluted and complex as many report based on lawsuits being filed and tax issues in Tennessee surfacing. I hope that this beleaguered brand can get back on solid ground, hit the reset button and restarting a new, renamed company and see if the promotion can be resurrected. However, to do so on POP TV might be daunting.”
