WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross published a new blog on jrsbarbq.com Monday night. Here are a few highlights:
- Ziggler is going to have a stellar year in 2012. The former amateur standout seemingly does something in every match that grabs my attention. Dolph reminds me of many greats of the game including Pat Patterson, Curt Hennig, and Billy Gunn. Fans that have no patience with where Ziggler currently stands in the 'pecking order' at least in those fan's eyes need to exhale and simply enjoy Ziggler's performances and continue to watch him evolve.
Dolph Ziggler could easily be WWE Champion or World's Champion by WM29. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
- Punk's tenure as WWE Champion is making the coveted WWE Title more meaningful and it's obvious that Punk's popularity is growing. I'm a big fan of CM Punk and feel that he' ranks with the most compelling WWE Champions in recent memory. Punk is smart, physical and durable which are all traits that are invaluable to WWE on many fronts.
- Yes, I'm still working for WWE and consulting in the Talent Development Department and loving it. I'll be with the NXT crew in Orlando again on Thursday July 12. This responsibility is supremely important to the future of WWE plus it keeps me off the road 51 weeks a year. I'm also going to be doing some scouting for potential, new talents.
