Jim Ross Says WWE Made A Smart Move By Aligning Themselves With ESPN

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 the WWE – ESPN relationship, rumors of who might be going into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2016, and more. Here are the highlights.

On the WWE – ESPN relationship:

Smart move by WWE aligning with ESPN. Creates awareness to a new, sports centric audience and may entice displaced fans, and there are plenty of those out there, back to the brand.

On rumors of who might be going into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2016:

Lots of rumors regarding the WWE HOF inductions for 2016 floating around. I will believe them when I see them but there certainly isn’t a shortage of viable candidates. Obviously, the Freebirds will be getting a great deal of support because it’s Dallas and their rivalry with the Von Erich’s there was the stuff of legend at one point in time. The key is to monitor how many inductees are being presented posthumously. That will always be an issue that WWE has to consider along with gender and ethnicity. I’d submit that Sting would be a great HOF candidate this coming year.  

On Jason Jordan and Chad Gable:

Really liking the up-side of NXT’s Jason Jordan and Chad Gable either as a team or positioned as individuals. Seems to me that Jordan, former Indiana Hoosier heavyweight, has been ready for a good while. Nonetheless all talents ar better suited to stay in NXT until WWE creative has a grand way to introduce them. In today’s marketplace one’s introduction and their first 6 months of their call up are essential.

    I seriously doubt if many people who watch ESPN will be persuaded to tune into pro rasslin’, you either are a fan or you’re not, to me that’s like saying if the WWE aligned with Fox news that would help boost ratings..ESPN has been wrestlers and their comments for years and I don’t see a spike in ratings from it..now if they had say Smackdown on ESPN that might be a little different but wouldn’t the same 2+ million viewers watch just the same..like I said you either love it or you don’t watch it and whatever the WWE draws right now is basically what their fan base is..if the WWE wants to entice the fans that left to come back? put on a better program and stop pandering to the PG crowd, you just can’t have it both ways..fans left for a reason, so if you want them back you have to do what they loved before they left, the flip side of course might be they get those people back, maybe, and lose some of the fans they have now
