WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross talks Magnum TA, Kevin Steen signing with WWE, and the expected results of John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam
2014-08-13 14:14:29


WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated the blog section of JRsbarbq.com. The following items are among the highlights. To order J.R.'s BBQ products, visit WWEShop.com.

-Ross on Magnum TA: "My conversation with Magnum TA which airs on September 23 on the Ross Report was awesome. Terry Allen aka Magnum TA told some amazing stories of his short, six year, amazing career that was ended by a near death car accident that left him partially paralyzed including his thoughts on the Best of 7 series vs. Nikita Koloff and the I Quit Match with Tully Blanchard. Plus, he shared how his family paid the late Buzz Sawyer $10K to 'train' Magnum. We also talked about the plans for Terry to become the NWA Champion."

Shore's Slant: I just saw Magnum at the Mid-Atlantic Fanfest in Charlotte. If you are unfamiliar with him, you owe it to yourself to learn more about him. The series with Koloff is my personal favorite feud of all time, and I stand by my theory that wrestling would look far differently today had Magnum not wrapped his Porsche, and boy, around a telephone poll.

-Ross on Kevin Steen signing with WWE: "Happy for Kevin Steen to be signed by WWE and he will report to NXT in late August from what I hear. I hope that Steen's WWE wrestling persona isn't over thought or major league reinvented as I feel that the Montreal native has a solid foundation, is a great, natural brawler, and has mic skills. If WWE exposes Steen's strengths, they could have a success story on their hands. I am a fan of Steen's work.

Shore's Slant: I could not agree more. I don't even mind WWE giving Steen some poorly thought out name, but tweaking his character too much would be major error. Take Sami Zayn as the example. They took the mask off--and gave him a stupid name--but that's still the El Generico character.

-Ross on Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena result: "I've thought all along that Brock Lesnar would defeat John Cena for the WWE World Title in LA, which I still think is the right direction to go, but something tells me that WWE may go 'off speed' and perhaps utilize Plan B. Could Cena retain on Sunday and then lose to Lesnar on RAW on Monday? Lots of possible scenarios but at the end of the day, in my view, John Cena is so 'over' that he doesn't need the WWE Title. Now is a great time to commit to going younger and Lesnar winning and passing the torch at WM31 facilitates that theory."

Shore's Slant: Oh no. Cena beating Lesnar at SummerSlam and then losing the title the next night might be the worst idea I have ever heard. And while I like the idea of passing the Torch at Mania next year, WWE better have that person set up right, and that means a ton of work if it is to be Roman Reigns.
