Alberto Del Rio On If He's Heading To ROH, Jim Ross On U.S. Wrestling Today Not Delivering, Impact

- Global Force Wrestling released the latest (10th) part of their interview with Jim Ross promoting the January 4th NJPW PPV from the Tokyo Dome on their YouTube channel. In part 9 above, JR had some interesting comments about today's wrestling product in the U.S.

"I think GFW has the chance to be very successful because the North American fan base are not getting what they want," JR said. "Social media would indicate such. Empty seats indicate such. Small attendance indicates such.

"The professional wrestling product in America right now is not red hot. I wish it were! I wish every company that does this for a living was making money hand over fist, nothing would make me happier. But that's not the case right now. So you hope that Global Force Wrestling is paying attention to the fact that today's genre isn't cool and isn't giving fans what they want across the board."

- Alberto El Patron issued this short message on Facebook confirming that he is heading to Ring Of Honor.

- Last night's episode of Impact Wrestling failed to crack the top 100 in the 18-49 demo. We hope to have viewership numbers for the show soon.
