Jim Ross posted his latest blog at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
The NXT crowd:
“I went back and looked and the live audience at the NXT Takeover London event and the live crowd did actually sing a pop tune while Bayley was ‘selling’ and it did feel strange. Is this type of crowd reaction good for the business? I’m leaning toward the negative side of that answer. But as everyone knows, I’m an old school, bitter dude who’s angry at the world and I yearn for the days of wool tights and mullets.”
“All these fighters @UFC calling out Conor McGregor, obviously because the Irishman is the new “it guy” in UFC and that’s where one will find the money…the big money. Two quick points, I hope that McGregor has a great financial planning in place where he’s saving much more than he spends on toys, etc plus that this reminds me of when Hulk Hogan was white hot in WWF and when the booking sheets would be distributed that the boys on the road, when three shows a night was the norm, would first look to find Hogan’s name and where he was booked and then examine that card to see if their name was listed too. Everyone wants to follow the money and being on Hogan’s live event cards was where the big money was as a rule back in the day.”
ROH Final Battle:
“CONGRATS to Ring of Honor on a solid PPV Friday night as their wrestlers really performed at a high level. The fans there seemed to have enjoyed themselves which helps the perception of any TV wrestling show.”
