Jim Ross Blogs: Monday’s RAW, Ryback’s Situation With WWE

WWE Hall of Fame
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry over at his website where he gives his thoughts on Monday’s episode of RAW, Ryback and more. Here are the highlights.

On AJ Styles, Karl Anderson, and Doc Gallows:

Seems to me that WWE has to accelerate the story telling of who Anderson and Gallows are and their long history with AJ Styles to allow the TV viewer to emotionally invest in what could appear to be no more than a traditional and predictable TV wrestling storyline. The ‘Bullet Club’ phenomenon is not one that has mass audience recognition. I like the faction a great deal but I’m in need of more info to help me form a better opinion on these new, TV characters. I contend that there are others that feel the same way.

On Ryback:

Sources say that WWE decided to send Ryback home after a spirited discussion regarding a new contract. Take it from me and this goes for virtually every walk of life one can imagine, it works infinitely better when one ‘converses’ and not ‘confronts’ when dealing with negotiations or most any facet of business. I’m not saying that was the case here with Ryback and WWE but it’s just good, general info for all of us to file away.

For the record, unless Ryback is going to be booked ala The Warrior, which isn’t a terrible idea,  I can easily see Ryback as a large, overbearing bully of an antagonist in WWE. The character is globally relatable and I think that Ryback could pull it off. I do not know the back story on this matter but when negotiations run into the closing window of an existing contract the talent and the company find themselves in uncomfortable territory. Plus, sometime it is also good for all involved to part and begin anew.

Remember, conversing and not confronting will get you the results that you seek more often than not.

On his future calling boxing:

Enjoyed a productive telephone conversation today and it looks as if there will be more boxing on the CBS Sports Network in my future. This fall we will likely go on Friday nights, all TBD, which means that I will fly out of Vegas early Saturday morning to be at the Oklahoma Football game that weekend. A man’s got to have his priorities, you  know?
