JR Blog: Raw’s Move to Three Hours, A.W.’s Controversial Joke

Jim RossJim Ross has posted a new blog over at JRsBarBQ.com, and the following are some highlights:

The three hour Raws are going to be daunting animals with which to deal. An impossible mountain to climb? Absolutely not even though some 'experts' already have those thoughts. I'm not in that group and feel that the three hour Monday Night Raw broadcasts provide the potential to get more talents exposure, to rebuild the tag team scene, to provide Divas with more match time and to slow down the storytelling process so that we fans have the time to process the information that we hear and see. So, unlike some, I'd prefer to give the new format a chance to succeed rather than behead it after two weeks which seems knee jerk and senseless. Any thing 'new' generally needs tweaking and this particular situation isn't any different. That's not an indictment but merely a statement of fact.

I missed AW's untimely remark on Raw for some reason Monday night…perhaps I had him 'tuned out' but the matter was addressed quickly by WWE. It's a case of a green talent attempting to garner attention and he made an error in judgment. I'd be shocked if he comes close to making such a remark ever again.
