Jim Ross Speaks On WWE's Growth, WWE Channel, Grisham & Striker

Jim Ross has a new blog entry up at JrsBarBQ.com. Highlights are below.

On WWE's growth: WWE's controlled growth as they continue to grow their brand internationally seems to be the way to go. Systematic, organized touring based on demand for tickets and the power and productivity of their TV partners are two key elements for this potential lucrative business element. As these TV outlets grow they will bring with them better delivery of PPV events which adds to finding "new monies." International business growth, as I have said for years, is exciting for the WWE brand.


On a WWE Channel: As I wrote earlier in the week, the potential of a WWE Channel is another positive. There are virtually unlimited ways to create new programming notwithstanding the Legends Roundtables, watching DVD releases w/ the talents involved with the production, daily blocks of World Class, AWA, etc has credence. Producing internet "radio shows" along the line of ESPN's Mike and MIke, etc would work. Producing a specific number of hours of daily programming and then repeating it seems doable. The potential is really limitless.

On Grisham and Striker: Grisham and Striker are beginning to mesh as a solid broadcast duo and their efforts will continue to be a work in progress which is to be expected. I like their potential. Their progress may see yours truly assume another role TBD upon my return which works for me. I feel that I'm fortune to be able to help the team in a variety of ways. All of that is up in the air and is pure speculation until I've been medically cleared. Maybe there is a three man booth in my future especially on selected PPV's. Who knows but I for one am not concerned. Just anxious to get back in the game.
