WWE News: Jim Ross talks about Roman Reigns' suspension

JR thinks Roman's suspension will benefit him to evolve into a locker room leader.

Good ol JR  will always be considered as one of the pioneers of the business

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross recently posted his comments on the latest happenings in the WWE Universe on his blog. In this blog post, he talks about the re-introduction of cruiserweights in WWE, about Roman Reigns’ suspension, and more.

Comments on WWE suspending Roman Reigns: 

I would certainly keep the triple threat main event for Battleground with Ambrose, Rollins and Reigns as there is no reason to penalize the other talents as it relates to the creative plan and where this triple threat main event fits into the big picture. Depending on the monies earned during the suspension period, Reigns could reasonably lose over six figures of income for his error in judgment. My prediction is that Roman will  return to WWE and evolve into a locker room leader. I truly believe that Roman will return better than when he left in key areas.  
 

WWE’s positivity towards cruiserweight style wrestling: 

WWE reevaluating their corporate, creative stance on “counterweights,” for the lack of a better term, is refreshing. There is a plethora of outstanding, ‘smaller;’ talents who can and will entertain WWE fans with their unique style of presentation and the fact that WWE is providing new wrestlers for their fans to enjoy. It sounds like a win-win for me as this new brand, as Paul Levesque described it Thursday, has a shot at being successful. Smart bookers book to the strengths of their talent roster and not their own personal preferences.

Jim Ross also commented on the lack of “selling” in today’s wrestling. He feels that some talents don’t know how to sell a move properly. In his opinion, great bumps should always be followed by varying degrees of “selling.
