Drew plugs tickets going on sale this Friday and says we are NXT - not the future but right now.
- WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross recently spoke with ESPN to promote his new "Slobberknocker" book at this link. It was noted that today's WWE commentary style is nothing like the sound of the company in 2005 or the late 90's, and that JR has sympathy for the weekly WWE announce teams. He said:
"A lot of folks get angry at today's commentators, but it's how they're produced. It's their skill-set, a lot of them, and it's what is asked of them to perform and to do ... the demands on today's wrestling broadcasters are extensive. The job description of that role has evolved and changed over the years. People can hear, and they can certainly tell that.
"It's changed a lot, and that's due to the fact that there are a lot of producers who are dictating what the product sounds like on the air. It's a different mindset, they were raised differently. They have different values and they perceive things [differently]."
