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. He noted that he is anxious to see where the Hardy Boys end up and that they will not have an issue with finding work. “Matt and Jeff would be a great addition to a WWE roster specifically if WWE is committed to Hardy friendly creative for the duo who started in WWE and who I would suggest should wind up there when the time comes. This is a big loss for Impact if this goes down this way.” He noted that it would be a significant get for WWE if the company can close the deal with the Hardys. He noted that if The Hardys stay on the indy scene then they will receive plenty of good paydays. He stated that fans should expect to see more talents depart from Impact due to the creative and management changes. He noted that he thinks that Jeff Jarrett will do a good job with their vision of Impact Wrestling.
Ross also commented on Beth Phoenix being inducted into the 2017 class of the WWE Hall of Fame. He noted that she is a class act and a great in-ring talent. He hopes that her husband Edge will induct her into the Hall of Fame. “Wouldn’t that be a first for a spouse to induct their better half? I also loved that Beth wrestled on her boy’s high school wrestling team. Sad to see so many bitter fans complain about Beth’s selection because Joanie Laurer wasn’t inducted.” He said that Lauer’s day in the Hall of Fame would come some day if it’s meant to be. He added that those sentiments are immature and unnecessary.
