Jim Ross Blog: Sting’s WWE Status, Renee Young To ESPN? http://www.24wrestling.com/jim-ross-blog-stings-wwe-status-renee-young-espn/ http://www.24wrestling.com/jim-ross-blog-stings-wwe-status-renee-young-espn/#comments Sat, 19 Apr 2014 18:48:41 +0000 http://www.24wrestling.com/?p=43923 WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what he said about:

ESPN Wanting To Sign Renee Young: “Where did the info come from that ESPN was interested in Renee Young? Not saying it’s true or not but it certainly made the rounds quickly within the IWC. Renee is a talented, young woman, without question, and I wish her the best no matter what she decides to do long term with her career. Renee has skills, a great look and isn’t a high maintenance talent but is easy to produce.”

Sting’s WWE Status: “Getting tons of questions regarding Sting signing with WWE of which I don’t know the answer and if I did and was asked to keep it confidential I would, for the record. However, I see it as a no brainer for WWE to sign Sting and to begin immediately in monetizing his intellectual property. WWE owns virtually every minute of video tape that Sting has appeared on except his work in TNA. Some of the UWF content and early WCW matches are particularly outstanding. It’s a match made in grappling heaven even if Sting never wrestles in WWE. In my perfect, booking world, which actually doesn’t exist and is an oxymoronic statement, Sting would have one match…a retirement match at WM31 against a suitable villain even though some will lobby for that retirement match opposition to be Undertaker. A smaller, athletic young talent who needs the “rub” would arguably be ideal.”

Sadler, who worked as a backstage interviewer for TNA, told Newsday,

“Just trying to get the word out about the brand, and let as many people know that there’s another wrestling promotion that’s coming,. What I’d like to do is kind of like what I did with TNA a long time ago, maybe pick a territory and do some live events,” Sadler said.

Sadler said that Global Force is aiming to start running shows this fall and added, “they’re not going to be like traditional wrestling shows.”

As noted earlier this week, the Global Force logo will be appearing on one of Sadler’s cars at the “Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown” next Thursday at South Boston Speedway in Virginia.

Update On Referee Not Knowing The Finish To Undertaker vs. Lesnar http://www.24wrestling.com/details-referee-knowing-finish-undertaker-vs-brock-lesnar/ http://www.24wrestling.com/details-referee-knowing-finish-undertaker-vs-brock-lesnar/#comments Fri, 18 Apr 2014 20:02:58 +0000 http://www.24wrestling.com/?p=43911 As previously reported, WWE referee Chad Patton — who served as the official for the Brock Lesnar vs. Undertaker match at WrestleMania XXX — was not informed ahead of time that Lesnar was going to be defeating Undertaker during the bout. There is, however, some who feel that Undertaker or Lesnar may have tipped him off while they were actually in the ring.

Prior to the match, Patton was pulled aside and told to count to three, as if the match were a shoot, if either guy had their shoulders pinned to the mat. He was told that the only exception would be if Undertaker applied his “Hell’s Gate” submission, to not count Undertaker’s shoulders down while doing that particular move.

Jim Ross Q&A: UFC Stars Transitioning To WWE, Brock Lesnar’s Future & More http://www.24wrestling.com/jim-ross-qa-ufc-stars-transitioning-wwe-brock-lesnars-future/ http://www.24wrestling.com/jim-ross-qa-ufc-stars-transitioning-wwe-brock-lesnars-future/#comments Fri, 18 Apr 2014 19:47:02 +0000 http://www.24wrestling.com/?p=43907 The following are highlights of a new Jim Ross website Q&A update:

On WWE going to Saudi Arabia despite the fact that no women are allowed on the shows: “I think that you are over thinking this matter. Of course it’s all about the money. Whey was it not all about the money? Diversification has zero to do with a country’s laws or customs.”

On how he would book Brock Lesnar now that he has ended Undertaker’s streak: “I am a marketer. If fans get these Q&A’s for free hopefully they will reciprocate by buying some of our family’s products online. Lesnar should become untouchable until he passes the invisible torch at WM31 to the next big thing. I’d not beat Lesnar until WM31 and then only if it made sense and someone was ready to assume that role.”

On the toughest guys in the wrestling business: “The list is endless….so many former NCAA Wrestling Champions along with some legendary street fighters.”

On if he feels UFC guys could transition to WWE: “It’s certainly possible. It’s not an easy transition. More will fail than succeed.”
