-Ross on Billy Gunn: "Happy @RealBillyGunn is officially a member of the training staff at NXT. Billy was one of the best, pure athletes that we ever had on our talent roster. Arguably, the best all around athlete we ever had. Expect huge things from WWE Talent Development in 2013."

Powell's POV: Gunn's stint was previously described as a "trial run" and it obviously went well. That means both members of the New Age Outlaws are once again employed by WWE, as Road Dogg works as an agent.

-Ross on Shawn Michaels: "The next NXT date in Orlando @FullSail is Thursday January 10 with special guest @ShawnMichaels and no, kids, HBK isn't going to wrestle. But it will be great to see Shawn and the athletes at NXT should be very honored to have one of the all time greats, arguably the best ever, there to help THEM get better."

Powell's POV: A rare pro wrestling related appearance for HBK and a cool opportunity for people who live in that area to see him in person. If you attend an NXT event, you are encouraged to send reports on the tapings and live events to

-Ross on The Slammy Awards: "With the Slammy Awards being held this Monday on RAW where the winners will be determined by fan vote on the WWE App, so here are my "votes"... Superstar of the Year...No brainer...WWE Champion @CMPunk. Need I explain? Let us count the days."

Powell's POV: That does seem like an obvious pick along with the breakout star. Ross also previewed other categories in his full blog.

Other topics include more on The Slammy Awards, the Michael Cole and JBL Show, a Ross radio appearance on Yahoo Sports Radio on Saturday morning.
