Jim Ross Blog: More Changes To SmackDown?, Vince's TV Return & More
WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross recently updated his official blog at JRsBarBQ.com with his thoughts on Vince McMahon’s WWE television return, more potential changes coming with SmackDown moving to USA Network, The Rock’s WrestleMania 32 announcement and more. Below are some highlights.
On Vince McMahon’s TV return and being the company’s best heel:
“Vince McMahon was the star of the broadcast . He’s the WWE’s best heel by far. He loves his role, makes it is own and isn’t playing the role of a villain. I thought it was smart booking that WWE promoted the next RAW main event of which is a WWE title match with McMahon as the special referee. How many times will the Montreal Screw Job be referenced between now and January 4th?
“McMahon’s return has been a spark for RAW whose TV ratings have been in the tank.”
On more changes coming to WWE SmackDown:
“Tonight is the final Smackdown TV taping for WWE this year and before Mauro Ranallo takes over as the lead Smackdown broadcaster when the show moves to the USA Network the first Thursday in January. I expect there to be more announcer tweaks as the new year progresses as well.”
On The Rock’s WrestleMania 32 announcement:
“Rock will be a part of WM32 in Texas but will he wrestle? In any event for the Rock to simply be committed to the April 3 event in Texas is HUGE.”
