Jim Ross Blog: NXT Eliminations, Win/Loss Records, New Belts

Matt Boone


The following are highlights from the latest online blog from WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross:

JR on NXT eliminations this week: “Even though Husky Harris and Percy Watson being eliminated did not shock me, I feel that both have marketable upsides and in time can be assets in WWE. Any rookie’s journey is a process and a long one at that as I still am under the belief that it takes a solid 3-5 years to fully develop a new, main event level star in the biz…”

JR on win/loss records: “Some pro wrestling fans put too much emphasis on win/loss records and not enough on the overall performance of a bout. Steve Austin didn’t win too many bouts when he first arrived in WWE and his career seemed to work out pretty well.”

JR on WWE tag-title belts: “The new tag title belts and name, WWE Tag Team Titles, makes a great deal of sense to me. Some emailers did not like the design of the titles but I had zero issue with that matter. As I have said in the past, I’m not a ‘belt guy.’”
