Jim Ross Q&A: WWE Unifying Titles, Axel’s Short Title Reign, Renee Young
On Curtis Axel’s short Intercontinental Title reign: “It’s all about casting. Axel is more relevant now that he was just a few months ago. Short reign create awareness.”
On whether or not WWE will drop the “big gold belt” when they unify the titles: “I have no idea what WWE creative is doing or is going to do but if I had to guess I’d say the WWE Titles stays and the World Title goes. Bottom line is that I don’t know.”
On whether or not the WWE & World Titles should be unified into one championship: “Again, I don’t know exactly what is going on but it appears that WWE wants to have one primary title going forward. I don’t spend much time on the creative plans of any pro wrestling company.”
On not being “big-headed” even though he’s a great, successful announcer: “I’d surmise it is the way in which I was raised by my Mom and Dad. Plus, who likes being around pompous, arrogant, entitled people? I certainly don’t.”
On the job Renee Young is doing in WWE currently: “Renee has plenty of talent and should continue to do well in WWE as I see her role expanding and then see other opportunities coming her way.”
