The following are highlights from the latest online blog by WWE Hall Of Fame announcer Jim Ross:
JR on Kane’s WWE return: “What did I think of Kane’s return to WWE at Raw during the closing moments of the Slammy’s? I thought it was an excellent surprise and it made an impact. Where it goes from here is anyone’s guess but getting back a star with Kane’s name identity is viable for WWE. He also looked to be leaner and in great physical condition. I’m still amazed that many fans thought that it really wasn’t Kane but an imposter or a ‘new’ Kane. Some even thought it was the Undertaker dressed in Kane attire.”
JR on the “Legends Of Wrestling” roundtable: “Will the Legends Roundtables be a part of the WWE Network? I have no idea what programs will air on WWE’s new network set to debut on April 1, 2012 but I personally think that the Legends Roundtables would be an excellent addition to the new network. I do like the thought of freshly produced, first run, reality type programming as I’m a reality show fan. WWE seems very focused on developing several new programming concepts for the WWE Network which I think is smart strategy.”
JR on tag-teams in professional wrestling: “Thoughts on Tag Team Wrestling? What thoughts are there to have? Tag Teams are seemingly an afterthought and not a high priority, by and large, with most wrestling companies. Many fans, especially long time fans, miss the many great tag teams of years gone by as do I. However, I don’t see the current trend changing but I hope that I’m wrong on that one. One thing is for sure and that is if several, legit teams were bonded together that, for many young fans, the tag team aspect of the genre would be new.”
