WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross recently published a blog post on his website, JRsBarBq.com. Within the post, Ross discussed a variety of professional wrestling topics, hitting on WWE, TNA, and Ring of Honor. Additionally, Ross provided updates on his current endeavors within the business.
“Good Ol’ JR” discussed the ongoing feud between NXT Champion Kevin Owens and WWE United States Champion John Cena. Ross noted that come their match at “Money in the Bank,” Owens should still be the one gaining the upper-hand:
“Hopeful that WWE keeps the Cena-Owens issue alive and the only way that will happen is if Owens, the villain, keeps gaining advantages in any manner possible going forward until the time comes for the big, blow off finale. Owens is NOT ‘over’ yet and for him to start losing to anyone right now isn’t to my way of thinking. Bottom line is that it is more important for WWE at this time to get Kevin Owens established as a main event level villain than it is to allow Cena to even the score.”
Earlier on in the post, Ross talked about the production value for Ring of Honor programming on Destination America. He noted that upgrades should be coming in due time:
“Got some Tweets about ROH’s production values that new viewers had heard me mention on the Ross Report. I’ve been told by ROH management that those upgrades are coming and to be patient. That’s good news. I still think that the hard working ROH talents would better serve themselves inside the ring if they slowed down a gear to have some where to go but no one can ever question the work ethic of ROH talent. ROH should do what they can to edit out dated live event references as it make the viewers think that they are watching an ‘old’ show.”
