Jim Ross Blog: RAW Thoughts, Michael Sam/WWE, NXT, Stephanie & AJ Lee
The following are highlights from the latest Jim Ross blog:
On WWE’s publicity stunt with Michael Sam: “The publicity motivated move by WWE to invite Michael Sam to next week’s RAW is intriguing as far as media exposure is concerned. The former SEC conference defensive player of the year was recently cut by the St. Louis Rams but is likely to be picked up on another NFL team. Sam is the first, openly gay NFL player to come out prior to the annual NFL Draft. It will be interesting to see how Sam’s creatively utilized IF he accepts WWE’s invite. Perhaps WWE is Michael Sam’s plan B. Who knows?”
“This matter will get WWE more national publicity than any thing else advertised on the first RAW of 2014 versus the NFL’s Monday Night Football. Again, will Michael Sam agree to appear? Stay tuned.”
On Stephanie McMahon and AJ Lee: “The tension between Stephanie McMahon and AJ Lee was interesting. Could be an compelling scenario going forward especially the promos.”
On NXT: “Been enjoying the NXT broadcasts on the WWE Network. Generally an excellently paced, one hour show which makes NXT an easy show to watch. Impressed with Charlotte, Ric Flair’s daughter, who has legit athletic skills and a marketable look. I’d merely suggest that she refrain from getting any more tattoos which officially reconfirms that I’m an old school guy. Seriously, Charlotte has a good shot to have a nice WWE career and I speculate that she will be called up to the main roster sometime this year.”
