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 Superstar Shakeup. He said that he likes the concept of freshening up the rosters, therefore, creating new rivalries and matches. He noted that the success of failure of this exercise is going to largely be up to the talents to be able to make whatever they are handed, work. He believes that legitimate stars generally find a way but they have to be confident, bold and willing to take a chance notwithstanding doing all that they can to improve their respective game every day to some degree. He added that both RAW and SmackDown Live seem to have had good nights with the reimbursement of key talents. Ross said that only time would tell if it will be considered a success or not, but it looks as if it’s off to a good start.
He gave high praised to Shinsuke Nakamura. “Nakamura is the most unique, main event, fan favorite talent that WWE has promoted in years and arguably forever. Asian, fan favorites are a rarity in North America, but the fans seem to adore the charismatic former MMA star.”
Renee Young has confirmed on her Twitter account that she recently got married to Dean Ambrose. Ross congratulated them and said that they are very nice people and he wished them years of happiness.
Finally, Ross commented on AJ Styles. “AJ Styles is arguably and potentially the hottest fan favorite currently residing on WWE TV who is not officially on that side of the fence. It’s tough to boo a wrestler in today’s presentation of the genre who is as good as AJ.”
