WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry over at his website where he gives his thoughts on Monday’s episode of RAW. In the blog, Ross commented on Kevin Owens winning the WWE Universal Title in a Fatal 4-Way Elimination match against Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, and Big Cass.
"Congrats to Kevin Owens on his win Monday night on RAW and becoming the 2nd Universal Champion thanks to a massive and surprising assist from HHH. So, Owens essentially cheated to win the title in a presentation that presented more questions than answers as the broadcast went off the air. Let us remember that is is usually successful when pro wrestling villains 'cheat' to win things of significance and the Universal Title is certainly significant even though some fans choose to die on the hill of the title belt not being to their liking and the actual name 'Universal' is a negative. Creating new,' marriages' and rivalries gives all talents involved a chance to shine and make positive impressions. People who are already damning the Monday Night RAW creative regarding the Universal title are arguably jumping the gun as we all need to see how these new, reshuffled decks play out over time."
Ross added that he is curious to see where the Owens - Triple H storyline goes and that it could lead to something significant at WrestleMania 33.
"Curious to see where this latest development takes long time and established star in WWE, @TripleH. That development likely will lead to something significant at WM33 in Orlando."
Neville, who wrestled Chris Jericho on the show, is a talent that Ross thinks is special and would be great in the cruiserweight division.
"Neville is a talent who has something special and would likely be a great addition to the Cruiserweight roster if the plans are for the smaller athletes to mean as much as they can become. I can easily see a hot, Cruiserweight division adding to RAW TV shows and live events especially if the title has clout and can build equity."
Ross also talked about the cruiserweight division and more. You can read the entire blog here. In you haven’t, you can listen to the latest episode of the Ross Report here:
