Jim Ross Blog: Slammy Awards, Building Young Stars, His New Podcast
His New Podcast: “We have a basic deal in place that looks as if I will start my own podcast in early 2014 for the most elite company in the field. There are details to finalize but things look positive. We are still working on the format but it will be fan friendly and very interactive.”
Tonight’s Slammy Awards “I’m always curious to see how a WWE Slammy’s Show is received and formatted during the three hour Monday Night RAW window. I know that it’s one of the internally busiest days of the year prior to going on the air on what is a ‘short day’ considering the show starts locally in Seattle at 5 p.m. Combining the Slammy Awards with promoting the TLC PPV on the same broadcast seems as if it might be tricky. We’ll find out tonight.”
WWE Building Top Stars For Future WrestleManias: “One thing is for sure, now is the time to rocket ship some young talents in hopes of getting them to the level of a main eventer needed for WM31 and WM32 notwithstanding the years beyond.
Does that mean a Roman Reigns, etc should win the Royal Rumble and play a key role in WM30 leading to bigger things in the coming years?
Promising young talents, as in more than one, have to be given the ball IE the opportunity to truly shine and let them see what they can do to connect fully with the fan base and become a bona fide main event, PPV selling star.”
