Jim Ross posted his latest blog at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
AXS TV's feelings on NJPW ratings:
"AXSTV officials are excited about latest TV ratings for New Japan Pro Wrestling with Josh Barnett and me that airs every Friday night on the network at 9/8 PM Central. Josh and I are both competitive and as I've said we're hellbent on becoming the best broadcast team on TV doing pro wrestling. We are coming into a good run of shows with some really amazing bouts with which we are jacked to be a part. Hope that you will watch and/or DVR our weekly shows."
"More unsettling rumors rolling out of Nashville regarding the financial health of TNA Impact Wrestling. Apparently a new investor or buyer is at play for the struggling company. Without significant, live event revenue and a viable, PPV component in the revenue mix it will not be surprising to hear of any pro wrestling company being in financial peril. I hope that the eventual fate of TNA is much different than those within the company and others close to the matter are saying. Nonetheless, it is somewhat obvious that the next few months are going to be crucial in determining the future of the company."
"Divas and now Total Bella's getting more TV love from the E Network. I know many females, according to their husbands and friends, who are major fans of the weekly reality show, including my wife Jan. I enjoy them too as long as they do not appear to be over scripted. Congrats to the Bella's, Daniel Bryan and John Cena on the new show and I hope that it is a success. My instincts tell me that it will feel less 'scripted' than many reality shows."
