Jim Ross

The following are highlights from the latest online blog by WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross:

JR on Money In The Bank: "Thought the @CMPunk vs. @WWEDanielBryan bout was excellent and the match of the night for my money. AJ fit well into the bout and did not adversely affect the outcome and allowed the bulk of the story, bell to bell, to be about the WWE Title, the WWE Champion, and the #1 contender."

JR on Kurt Angle/Gerald Brisco Drama: "Obviously, Kurt is getting his award and an impromptu comedy bit/rib has been addressed after multiple knee jerk reactions created a buzz on a slow, news weekend. Don't be mistaken, many of us were disappointed that we were not able to see an old friend and stated so but as it bound to happen some things are taken out of context or embellished.

"For those of us who were instrumental in the early stages of Kurt Angle's career, to see him earn an award such as the Frank Gotch Award is a 'win' for us all. For Kurt to be unable to attend was disappointing to everyone involved, including Angle himself. Hopefully Kurt can attend next year and enjoy the wonderful, two day affair in Waterloo. I know that he would love to tour the museum loaded with amateur and pro items…and eat at the Brown Bottle. Plus, he could have some fun at Brisco's expense."

JR on NXT not airing in the U.S.: "I do not know of any plans for WWE.com to air NXT to answer a frequently asked question. NXT is wrestling heavy and, arguably, features more in ring content than any other WWE program."
