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 future with ROH following their surprise appearance at last Saturday’s event in which they won the Tag Team Titles from The Young Bucks. He said that he loved the surprise booking and title change. He would speculate that the Hardys will still eventually wind up in WWE after WrestleMania 33. “That ‘marriage’ just makes too much sense, IMO, at this stage of the careers of Matt and Jeff plus WWE could utilize the Hardy’s to help add some much needed sizzle to their tag team scene. If the Hardy’s don’t go to WWE, they will not be missing many paydays as this duo is in demand and their new, TV personas are a hit globally.” He added that in any event, you can bet that the eventual destination for The Hardys will continue to get heavy social media coverage.
Ross commented on Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman at Fastlane. He noted that he enjoyed the match and especially impressed with Strowman. He is somewhat stumped as to why Strowman lost more so than why Reigns won but noted that we will hopefully find out soon. He said that Reigns is still in a high position in the company but noted that Strowman has the potential to be a WrestleMania main event talent.
Finally, Ross brought up winning WWE Universal Championship at Fastlane. He said that the Goldberg defeated Kevin Owens at the event to set up Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg at WrestleMania for the championship isn’t a shocker. “Kevin Owens getting reattached to Jericho is a blessing for the talented, Owens who could have the match of the night at ‘Mania which will greatly help the Montreal native. Jericho is as good, if not better, as anyone on the WWE roster right now. Appreciated WWE introducing the challengers for the various title bouts first made me happy. Should be that way all the time.”
