WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted his new blog, where he talks about NXT TakeOver, as well as James Storm appearing for the brand. You can see some highlights below, and the full post at this link.
James Storm to NXT:
"Great get by WWE to swoop up James Storm @JamesStormBrand as he debuted at NXT Thursday night in Orlando. James is a top hand who can work on any roster against any opponent and most importantly can teach, coach and mentor the pups. I'd love to see WWE hire Bobby Rood too as he's a modern day Arn Anderson, high praise, and can do the same, positive things that the Cowboy can do. If NXT is going to become WWE's third, touring brand then adding guys like Storm and Rood makes a ton of sense. James was my guest in Knoxville at RINGSIDE w/ Jim Ross Show and we discussed his possible tenure in WWE if an offer can through. I'm happy that it did."
"Sasha Banks is amazing in that she feels like a heel and enjoys finding and refining the nuances of being a pro wrestling villain. She wants to be disliked and not be perceived as cool. Bailey is the likeable, girl next door who has improved immensely since she first arrived at NXT. That's what hard work and a burning desire to be the best at what one does will do for anyone."
NXT TakeOver commentary:
"Enjoyed the commentary on NXT. I'm cursed in that I likely listen to closely to the announcing and if I have any critiques they are often times misconstrued as me being bitter and/or angry which isn't true whatsoever but I thought the trio did a very solid job. I could tell they were grinding it out through the 30 minute Ironman Match which was likely the longest match any of them have ever done especially on live TV. They were well prepared and remembered that they were on TV, spoke in sound bytes and generally stayed on what I was seeing in the ring which lessens the viewer the opportunity to 'check out' and detach from any emotional investment into the presentation."
