JR Blog: Are Y2J & Batista Finished With WWE?, FCW, Angle

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

"My most recent trip to FCW in Florida was good. WWE has several, potential main eventers that are being groomed as we speak. No one candidate sticks out head and shoulders above the rest but there are many athletes that I feel will be in the hunt for a WWE roster spots sooner than later… I hope to get more involved in WWE developmental as it's an exciting time with which to be involved in the process. Nothing is more important for WWE's long term success than developing tomorrow's stars and then being ready to fully utilize them once that they are called up to the big time."

"Is Kurt Angle serious about trying to make the US Olympic Wrestling team? Absolutely serious according to Jerry Brisco. Kurt visited Jerry Brisco while Jerry was in a Pittsburgh hospital recently and re-enforced such with Brisco with who Angle is still close. Jerry was  a coach/mentor to Kurt during Angle's WWE run. BTW, Jerry is feeling MUCH better after having two stents put in his neck area for two, seperate blockages that had previously gone undetected."

"Do I think that Chris Jericho and Dave Batista have wrestled their last matches in WWE? No…but that may simply be my personal, wishful thinking. Few performers want to walk away when there's gas left in the tank and with good paydays to be earned. Plus, being on WWE TV is a global marketing tool that furthers other endeavors. Just my two cents and, again, because I like both men's work it may be simply wishful thinking on my part."
