Jim Ross Blog: Kevin Steen/WWE, Outcome Of Lesnar vs. Cena At SummerSlam, More

0

The following are highlights of the latest blog by WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross:

On Magnum T.A.: “My conversation with Magnum TA which airs on September 23 on the Ross Report was awesome. Terry Allen aka Magnum TA told some amazing stories of his short, six year, amazing career that was ended by a near death car accident that left him partially paralyzed including his thoughts on the Best of 7 series vs. Nikita Koloff and the I Quit Match with Tully Blanchard. Plus, he shared how his family paid the late Buzz Sawyer $10K to ‘train’ Magnum. We also talked about the plans for Terry to become the NWA Champion.”

On Kevin Steen signing with WWE: “Happy for Kevin Steen to be signed by WWE and he will report to NXT in late August from what I hear. I hope that Steen’s WWE wrestling persona isn’t over thought or major league reinvented as I feel that the Montreal native has a solid foundation, is a great, natural brawler, and has mic skills. If WWE exposes Steen’s strengths, they could have a success story on their hands. I am a fan of Steen’s work.”

On the outcome of Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena at SummerSlam: “I’ve thought all along that Brock Lesnar would defeat John Cena for the WWE World Title in LA, which I still think is the right direction to go, but something tells me that WWE may go ‘off speed’ and perhaps utilize Plan B. Could Cena retain on Sunday and then lose to Lesnar on RAW on Monday? Lots of possible scenarios but at the end of the day, in my view, John Cena is so ‘over’ that he doesn’t need the WWE Title. Now is a great time to commit to going younger and Lesnar winning and passing the torch at WM31 facilitates that theory.”
