WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry over at his website where he gives his thoughts on Sting vs. Seth Rollins at Night of Champions, Bram being arrested, and Sarita becoming a coach at the WWE Performance Center. Here are the highlights.
On Bram being arrested:
Sad to hear that TNA’s now suspended Bram has been arrested on two, felony counts of domestic battery in Florida. It might be challenging for the Brit to keep his credentials to stay in the USA under these circumstances considering that he has an existing arrest record that prompted him to get released by WWE. The entire matter is unfortunate as Bram aka Thomas Latimer is a solid talent who I thought had a significant upside when I first saw him in WWE developmental. I’d be shocked if TNA retained his services if these charges are validated. Plus, one has to feel empathy for the alleged victim.
On Sting vs. Seth Rollins at Night of Champions:
The Sting-Rollins NOC Title bout is intriguing to me on a variety of fronts. It’s great to see old friend Sting get to headline a major WWE event even though as I write this he has yet to win a WWE bout if you’re keeping score at home. Perhaps tonight will change that piece of business unless WWE is ‘saving’ Sting’s next in ring appearance for NOC. Rollins is evolving into a top hand without question and it will be interesting to see how he and Sting compliment each other’s strengths on September 20 in Houston. I like the booking. I think the match will out perform some skeptics predictions and that it should be a significant night for young, Rollins. Or does Sting score the upset and Sheamus cashes in the MITB Contract to become the Champ? I assume any thing is possible but I see Rollins retaining.
On Sarita becoming a coach at the WWE Performance Center:
Expect former CMLL star Sarita, Sarah Stock, to be a coach in NXT. She’s a really solid wrestler who should make a good teacher/mentor for her students. We wish her the best. She was also a Bells palsy victim a few years ago.
