JR Blog: Comments on Rookie Talents in WWE

Nick Paglino

Jim Ross has posted a new blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below is a highlight:

"Others want to know if I think it is wrong that some young talents, IE Jack Swagger, Sheamus, etc are getting too much too soon. There is no magical formula or magic wand one can wave over the head of a young wrestler to guarantee their success. I do know this, the business has to get younger and WWE, at least, is attempting to do that which means they are keeping an eye on their long term growth. No one knows what young talent will or will not make it but if they aren’t given the opportunity it’s obvious that they will never get to the Promised Land. I applaud wrestling promotions for providing opportunity for young wrestlers as no one can accurately and definitively way when some one is ‘ready.’ My theory is to get them fundamentally sound, motivated, and throw them in the game and see if they can play."
