Jim Ross Blog: WWE's TV Negotiations, Tag Division Heating Up, Lesnar-Heyman

December 29, 2020 0 By JohnValbyNation

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a blog update at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what he said about:

WWE’s TV Negotiations: “Interesting article in ‘Variety’ on the WWE TV situation. The WWE brand is an amazing franchise with loyal fans who will follow their brand to any network much like NASCAR or the NFL, among other franchises. The network in the USA that obtains the TV rights for WWE content will have a proven winner on their hands and that new relationship, if it happens, would start in the all of 2014.”

“It’s essentially impossible to find another sports-entertainment entity WWE’s name identity and that has no off season and produces new, original programming weekly. That’s a great sales pitch in addition to adding to the loyal, fan base.”

WWE’s Tag Team Division Heating Up:”Seeing all the tag team action reminded me of back in the day when Jim Crockett Promotions used to feature ample, tag team wrestling highlighted by the Jim Crockett Memorial Tag Team Tourney. I enjoyed being a part of that process and feel, if presented creatively, that a similar tournament would be a nice, TV attraction. Tournaments are naturally episodic in how they are structured so the ‘story’ of the process is organically in place.”

“Tag Team wrestling allows multiple talents to get viable, TV exposure. Plus it builds upon their individual personalities and encourages talents to creatively mesh with their partner in some shape, form or fashion. If it’s a good presentation, the fans win because the competition is enhanced and the creative directions that a tag team match can take are essentially endless.”

Paul Heyman & Brock Lesnar’s Returns: “I’d also expect Paul Heyman to return to WWE TV soon as the serious build to WM30 begins in earnest, as usual, after the New Year and leading into the Royal Rumble. That means that one can expect to see Brock Lesnar return as well. I’m still of the belief that Lesnar’s TV persona will get significant and much needed exposure in one form or another to make the “Next Big Thing” as valuable an asset as possible for whoever he faces at WM30.”

There’s much more to this blog update, including JR’s thoughts on Monday’s RAW, Roman Reigns’ breakout potential as a singles star, Daniel Bryan’s role at WrestleMania 30. Head over to JRsBarBQ.com to read the full blog entry.
