Jim Ross Blogs: JBL/Cole/RAW Commentary, NXT & More
Jim Ross has updated his blog over at JrsBARBQ.com. Here are highlights:
On working with JBL and Michael Cole on Monday’s RAW: “Really enjoyed working the three man announce table with JBL and Michael Cole as I felt that we started somewhat slow but really found our rhythm as the show progressed.
JBL is a polarizing personality with big talent and and an edge which adds to any WWE broadcast. A smart antagonist has and always will have a place in sports entertainment television. Michael Cole, in the role that he is currently in, has been outstanding. Michael is a tireless worker who prepares like no one that I’ve ever worked with. He handles the required social media business, etc expertly which is something that I’d be challenged to do in today’s WWE.”
On WWE’s future commentary plans: “I have no idea who WWE plans to pair with Cole in the weeks leading to Jerry Lawler’s expected return to the announce table on RAW but who ever it may be will be receiving a great opportunity for exposure and to enhance their TV persona. JBL’s going to be a little busy over the next couple of weeks traveling to Africa and climbing Mt Kilimanjaro.”
On when NXT will air in the US: “I’ve heard nothing about when or if NXT will begin airing in the United States but the feedback from other regions that air the broadcast has been universally favorable.”
