Jim Ross Blog: Would Bruno Be A Main Eventer Today, Undertaker NXT Tryouts

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with another blog update, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what JR wrote about:

Undertaker’s Status for WM29: “Will the Undertaker wrestle at WM29? I honestly and truly have no idea. However, I don’t believe all that I read online from those who are speculating multiple tales regarding the subject. Do I think that the Undertaker is done? No. Absolutely not.”

Would Bruno Sammartino Be A Star In Today’s Era?: “Would Bruno Sammartino have made it in today’s wrestling business? Absolutely. Bruno had ‘it.’ ‘It’ cannot be taught or feigned. Bruno knew how to connect with the paying customers. He was believable. Just because Bruno never did a hurricanrana or a tope doesn’t mean he would not have done well. It’s all about talent and television and how the talents are perceived on TV. That means it takes a partnership between the two entities with the talent being the key component.”

Last Weekend’s NXT Tryouts: “Why don’t I give more details on the NXT tryouts WWE held last week? Just being professional. I know who I voted for but I don’t know the final tally of voting so I don’t know who’s going to be offered. The camp started slowly with a long, arduous Friday but picked up very nicely on Saturday and Sunday.”

    would Bruno be a star today?
    who knows!? we know that in ring skill has nothing to do with who vince jr. gets behind.
    imagine how sad it would be to see Bruno job for supercena

    • Steve

      Vince would probably get him on a diet and sent to gym to bulk up

    If you watch those old cards with Bruno headlining, you know he would have been the man. He was so loved by the fans. However, since we are in a day of the fan who roots for the bad guy, maybe…No, he still would have been the man!

  • Johnny Abdul

    this is coming from the same guy that said a couple years ago that Randy Savage wouldn’t fit in their current product.

  • Progress_Now

    lol sure he’d fit in, he’d get the same chants Cena gets. or the same chants Kurt Angle got in his debut match. same chants Shamrock Vs Undertaker at Backlash 1999 got.
