WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross updated his official blog at JRsBarBBQ.com with his thoughts on Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman returning to WWE television, his predictions for the 2016 WWE Hall Of Fame class. Below are some of the highlights.
On WWE needing to heat Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman back up on television:
“WWE needs to heat up @HeymanHustle and Brock Lesnar tonight on RAW as Lesnar is WWE’s biggest star especially in light of the irregular number of significant injuries that they are attempting to withstand. Pull the trigger and engage the Beast Incarnate in NOLA. Do it early before the National Championship College football game between Clemson and Alabama kicks off.”
On his predictions for this year’s WWE Hall Of Fame induction class:
“My predictions for the WWE HOF this year include: @Sting, @MichaelPSHayes and the Freebirds @JCLayfield, @JackieMooreTx, @Goldberg, and Stan Hansen. Not bad for a first pass. I see that WWE agrees with the headliner as they tabbed Sting as the first inductee in the 2016 class earlier on Monday. Great selection and a ll deserved honor for a man that I’ve known for 30 years and have been privileged enough to broadcast some of his biggest bouts. Steve Borden is one of the nicest people that I’ve known in the business.”
On WWE confirming Sting for this year’s Hall Of Fame class:
“My guess is that Ric Flair is Sting’s presenter as they have a long history with each other , I called their classic, 45 minute draw at the first Clash of Champions in Greensboro back in the day with Ric vs Sting on TBS. I first met Sting in 1986 which is 30 years ago! Wow, where does the time go?”
