JR Blog: Latest NXT Angle, Announcer Advice & Brock Lesnar

Nick Paglino

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

"Monday Night Raw in Charlotte started off really hot and intriguing last night featuring the follow up on the NXT Invasion. The NXT content seems to be the most talked about issue on RAW or any other WWE show right now or at least that’s my take on it. Having NXT content on the PPV this Sunday feels imperative."

"An emailer asked me how to become ‘a WWE announcer like you.’ Last I looked I am not longer a WWE announcer but I strongly urge anyone to first finish their college degree, do all the broadcasting projects one can, even if for free, in any area of broadcasting to be able to make yourself a great ‘reel’, don’t be overly consumed in the genre, don’t have any facial hair, lose any Southern accent, and what ever you do never contract Bells palsy because ‘look’ is crucial. In all seriousness, being a great broadcaster in any genre is as much about natural instincts as any thing."

"Lots of fans wondering what sort of issues Brock Lesnar may have after being out of the Octagon for such a long length of time primarily due to illness as in diverticulitis. Having had the same illness I can say with confidence that Brock should have no issues battling back from the ailment due to the elapsed time of the diagnosis and the treatment that the former WWE Champ received. However, the question that does linger is ‘ring rust’ and that’s the biggest conundrum of all as it relates to the July 3 UFC PPV main event."
