JR Blog: PG Wrestling, Stolen WWE Luggage, Squash Matches

Nick Paglino

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

"Do I dislike PG wrestling? No. Absolutely not. A TV rating does not a good, TV wrestling show make. Talented individuals involved in compelling stories makes for a good, TV wrestling show… Does PG essentially mean ’no attitude?’ Not in my view. If one only enjoys wrestling for blood and crass behavior then I question how big a fan of wrestling some actually are."

"Yes I heard about the WWE talents who had items from checked baggage stolen upon arrival in South Africa a day or so ago. I never checked valuables and put things like my CPAP machine and meds in my carry on. Always wore that damned hat. Old school rules say wrestlers never check their gear. Never."

"Would I endorse the return of ‘enhancement matches?’ Absolutely. Perhaps one or maybe two within a two hour wrestling program. Why? A new star might be discovered, the focus of the commentary would be to better acquaint the viewer with the primary subject in the ring, and it would extend the shelf life of many talents. Plus, getting skilled ‘journeymen’ wrestlers on TV seems like the right thing to do. Who knows who clicks with an audience?"
