Jim Ross posted his latest blog at Here are some highlights:

Ryback's contract:

"Sources say that WWE decided to send Ryback home after a spirited discussion regarding a new contract. Take it from me and this goes for virtually every walk of life one can imagine, it works infinitely better when one 'converses' and not 'confronts' when dealing with negotiations or most any facet of business. I'm not saying that was the case here with Ryback and WWE but it's just good, general info for all of us to file away."

Ryback's booking:

"For the record, unless Ryback is going to be booked ala The Warrior, which isn't a terrible idea, I can easily see Ryback as a large, overbearing bully of an antagonist in WWE. The character is globally relatable and I think that Ryback could pull it off. I do not know the back story on this matter but when negotiations run into the closing window of an existing contract the talent and the company find themselves in uncomfortable territory. Plus, sometime it is also good for all involved to part and begin anew."


"Rusev winning the US Title #1 contenders battle royal did not bother me as I'm one who thought that Rusev was on his way to really being special when his winning steak was prematurely ended. The key with this victory is the always prominent 'follow up.'"
