Jim Ross Blogs On WWE Cruiserweight Division Criticism, Conor McGregor In WWE, His Show In Toronto

Jim Ross posted his latest blog at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights:

Conor McGregor's UFC 205 victory:

"McGregor is the 'King of the World' right now and would likely be on top of WWE's 'hit list' to be a future Wrestlemania celeb participant. He'd likely cost them 'Tyson Money' to get the deal done but it's obvious that the talented Irishman is a businessman who covets the big money. Nothing wrong with that by the way, Plus, Conor sells tickets and PPV's."

The WWE Cruiserweight division:

"Still continue to read where some pundits and fans are growing impatient regarding how fast WWE is establishing their new, Cruiserweight division. I need to see more of the talents outside the ring and to get to know those that actually possess a personality suitable for prime time TV. I am all for his grouping of athletes but many folks need to simply develop that rare trait known as patience when dissecting this matter.

"Much like the brand split, I think that it will be April 2 in Orlando at Wrestlemania before we can truly and intelligently evaluate the success, or not, of that venture. When we see what each brand donates to the WM33 card, we will be better suited to declare our thoughts on the brand separation....at least that's my two cents."

His show in Toronto this Sunday:

"We have some tickets left for this Sunday's RINGSIDE show in Toronto at ticketmaster.ca, www.livenation.com and at the Second City box office including the day of our event. The doors open at noon this Sunday for VIP ticket holders amd at 2 pm for everyone else with the show starting at 2:30 and being over by 4 pm to allow everyone attending the Survivor Series plenty of time to make the easy walk from our venue to the ACC. Hope to see you there if you are in Toronto for this bodacious weekend."

Much more is contained in Ross' latest blog, including his thoughts on Miesha Tate retiring, being interviewed for ESPN's 30 for 30 piece on the XFL, his upcoming autobiography and more. You can check out the full entry by clicking here.
