WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross took to his blog for his weekly review of “Monday Night Raw,” this week, and had some strong thoughts about the go-home episode for “TLC.” Below are some of the highlights.
Ross praised Dolph Ziggler’s work, alongside his foes in the main event:
“I had no issue with Ziggler losing to the new, top, WWE villain Seth Rollins especially with Mercury and Noble at ringside. Ziggler is building and his fans are solidly behind him which is great that they’ve been patient. I like veteran wrestlers Noble and Mercury role in WWE and think that they add to the process. Plus, it’s fun to see two guys who paid plenty of dues get one more run with the ball.”
He chimed in on the Charlotte and Natalya match, which he thinks is a good representation of what the Divas division can be:
“Really high on Charlotte while Nattie has made herself into a top star by being a loyal, talented team player. That’s how it’s done. The lower the maintenance the better. If more talents simply focused on doing their job and getting better each day than becoming immersed in BS & locker room drama everything generally works better. Charlotte can be a difference maker if she can continue to focus on improving her game and not allow outside distractions to affect her. BTW I was surprised that Charlotte lost in Flair Country.”
Ross also gave credit to Damien Mizdow and The Miz:
“It’s easy to see that Damien Mizdow is getting over. Happy for him. He’s reinvented himself multiple times but always comes to work ready and willing to help the team. Maintains a positive attitude and is always looking for ways to make himself better. Good credo for all of us to utilize.”

I see gold in Charlotte as well, depending on how they play her off on TV. I think she can step right into the fold, though.
