Jim Ross comments on The Shield, Big E Langston, complacent WWE wrestlers
Jan 2, 2013 - 11:08 AM


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 The Shield: "I've been impressed with The Shield and how they have been presented by WWE in addition to the effort displayed by each member of the faction. All three men offer something special. None are overtly head and shoulders above the other and each has the opportunity to become special in their own, individual careers. These men are hungry and seem to be willing to outperform many of their peers within the WWE locker room to earn lucrative spots at the top of the card. More established talents who enjoy their own, self created comfort zones would be well served to look over their shoulders."

Powell's POV: The comfort zone is a big theme of Ross's latest blog. Here's hoping that wrestlers such as Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns will help light a fire under some of the wrestlers Ross is referring to.

-Ross on Big E Langston: "Newcomer Big E Langston has been introduced in a meaningful way by WWE. I have been a supporter of Big E's for quite some time. Having spent a great deal of time in WWE Talent Development and watching 'E' train and getting to know him, he's a bright, athletic young man who will hopefully continue to grind and study his craft. His physical gifts are obvious."

Powell's POV: I like what they've done with Langston so far. He's in a role similar Mr. Hughes or even Big Bubba Rogers (a/k/a Big Bossman), yet it also feels unique even to those of us who remember the way those big men were used early in their careers.

-Ross on complacent wrestlers: "I see too many talents today who are in a comfort zone and are resolved to the fact that they are in an unwanted role that they will never escape. Firstly, ask any successful manager, especially in sales, and they will tell you that a sales staff loaded with personnel who are nestled in their own comfort zone is extremely dangerous. Comfort zones destroy the entrepreneurial spirit of a sports entertainer, a sales person, etc. In the wresting biz, breaking free from comfort zones and becoming a part of the process, whether one is asked to participate in the process or not, is imperative."

Powell's POV: The theme of the blog continues. Ross had a lot more to say about this topic and he also offered thanks for a number of topics heading into the new year.

Other topics include Jan Ross, being a 20-year WWE employee, Dolph Ziggler, Wade Barrett, Sheamus, and much more.
