JR Blog: Will ROH Hurt TNA?, Michael Cole, Cena & More

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

"Do I think that ROH will adversely affect TNA once ROH begins airing their weekly, syndicated TV show? Likely not. Wrestling fans have proven over time that if multiple brands are compelling enough that they will watch. While my focus is on WWE, I am a fan of the genre and wish success to whoever is earning a living in it."

"Can I co-exist working with Michael Cole? Absolutely. I've been around the block once or twice and have partnered with many, many skilled adversarial broadcasters.  Any three man announce booth is always in danger of 'over talking' and King, Cole, and myself will have to be aware of such and make sure our focus is on the talent and not on us."

"Is John Cena THAT controversial? Depends on what context with which one is speaking but I'd certainly say that Cena is definitely a polarizing individual. There's no mid ground as it relates to most fans opinion on Cena as they either like him or they don't.  As a former head of talent relations, Cena is a dream to work with and has a legit, blue collar work ethic."
