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 a possible main event for WrestleMania 34 next year in New Orleans. He asked what if WWE had Brock Lesnar defend the WWE Universal Championship against Roman Reigns at the event. He believes that is the direction that WWE is going and that he likes the match as it would give Lesnar a one-year run as champ which also would necessitate Lesnar working a few more dates on his last year of his current contract. He thinks that it’s a logical idea and that Lesnar could defend the championship monthly if WWE wanted him to.
Ross commented on Jack Swagger getting his release granted from WWE, “WWE announced that it has released fellow Oklahoman Jack Swagger from his WWE contract. The former Oklahoma Sooner All-American Wrestler won’t have any issues getting booked. Seems like it would be strategic for Impact Wrestling would jump on the former WWE Champion when he’s legally able to appear on their TV.” He noted that Swagger would be a great addition to the NJPW or ROH roster. He wished Swagger the best.
Ross brought up Christopher Daniels winning the ROH World Heavyweight Championship at last Friday’s ROH 15 Anniversary pay-per-view event. He said that he is proud of Daniels for his achievement of being the ROH Champion and that he and Adam Cole had a classic match that was reminiscent of territory wrestling main events on major cards.
