JR Blog: Tough Enough Rumors, WMania 27 Main Event, More

Nick Paglino

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

"Lots of on line speculation that WWE and USA Network may bring back the reality TV show ‘Tough Enough.’ That’s new news to me but I like the idea. A true reality show regarding the wrestling genre that is taped outside an arena is more attractive to me than say producing NXT in an arena. Going outside the traditional and established box with the time tested genre works for me as a viewer… Personally, as a fan of WWE and reality TV I would be more inclined to make it a point to watch ‘Tough Enough’ every week than ’NXT.’"

"I have not read the latest dirt that Edge is contemplating retirement. Honestly speaking, any athlete that is Edge’s age, he’s still young but has been in wrestling a long time, and has had his laundry list of injuries must obviously ‘think’ about their future if they are smart and Edge is a very smart guy. Edge has earned exceptionally well and he’s been admirably smart with his funds. I see Edge sticking around and contributing a few more years but he will not be one of the guys who’s 50 or more and still wrestling at the local, VFW Hall for grocery money. Edge is a true student of the game and still has so much to give and him being on Smackdown is timely and smart positioning for WWE."

"I would suggest to you that no one knows for sure what the main event or main events will be in Atlanta at WM27. I would also suggest to you that any one who says that they do know for sure is loaded with manure. Having a big time, marquis main event for WM27 is crucial as it is hard to market this mega event with an ensemble cast and no primary focus on one, major bout."
