JR Blog: Mistico/WWE Signing, Sting/WWE, Arn Anderson

Nick Paglino

Jim Ross has posted a new blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:

"Sin Cara has a magnificent opportunity to become a global star in WWE. The final verdict, as always, will be rendered by the paying customers based on how well the gifted athlete delivers inside the squared circle. It will be interesting to see what brand, Raw or Smackdown, gets the opportunity to showcase Sin Cara."

"An emailer asked me why Arn Anderson wasn’t a TV color commentator. Double A tried it for a brief period and didn’t like it at all. The HOF qualified, ‘Enforcer’ of the Four Horsemen was a fabulous interview but doing TV color commentary is a different breed of cat that many skilled promo guys simply don’t embrace or enjoy. Arn told me many times that he didn’t like doing color commentary but no one can deny that Arn Anderson wasn’t one of the best ever on the mic in the biz."

"Speaking of ‘Taker, that Sting vs. Undertaker WM27 match that many just knew was going to happen at WM27 looks a little ‘iffy.’ Seriously, I said many times that I did not think that Sting would likely venture into WWE at this point in his career. All people have ‘comfort zones,’ including yours truly, that we are reluctant to leave. In hindsight, at least in my view, more often than not and especially for veterans the ‘comfort zone’ thing isn’t a negative."
