Jim Ross Q&A: WWE Talent Cuts, Roman Reigns vs. Undertaker?, More

Published On August 1, 2014 by (Wrestling News, WWE News)

The following are highlights from a recent Q&A update by WWE Hall Of Famer :

On the piledriver being banned: “I see no upside in keeping a potentially crippling hold in use. It almost ended Austin’s career and many of today’s talents don’t work on it so it wouldn’t be safe as it needs to be. So no I would not endorse using it in general.”

On if he’d book vs. : “Likely not. Face vs. Face with those two doesn’t interest me nor would it help either one.”

On WWE acquiring wrestling libraries: “Acquiring various wrestling libraries was a priority because of the concept of having a network some day. The St. Louis library was sold to a Canadian company and WWE never really got deeply in the negotiations for it as it was sold quickly. Many old territories did not maintain their own libraries which is why WWE doesn’t own them today.”

On if WWE’s cutbacks will result in more talent releases: “I don’t know. I do know that the talent roster needs to be evaluated weekly if not daily to see what ‘new’ is ready to be added and what talents need to go. That process never ends or at least it shouldn’t.”
