WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross shares his love for developmental and gives his thoughts on The Shield, Big E Langston, and Dolph Ziggler
Apr 24, 2013 - 03:49 PM


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: "Even though the Shield had some indy experience before joining NXT, the training that the trio received in Florida has served them well. Further proof to me that NXT is the true future of WWE as it relates to the TV product which is what drives the entire company. Nothing's more important than talent and television within WWE.

The Shield had a pivotal week in the world of WWE TV and it continues this Friday night on Smackdown. Already some fans are clamoring for the trio to break up and go their separate ways. I content that it's too early for that and that there are many productive miles left in this new, hot faction that has a chance to become one of the more significant groups ever assembled in WWE."

Shore’s Slant: Clamoring for them to break up? There's so much more money that is availbe for this group. They will need to split, eventually, but JR is correct that it is way too soon.

-Ross on Big E Langston: "Enjoying the development of Big E Langston who is an intelligent, grounded athlete of immense strength and overall athleticism. E's still evolving/growing but he is making steady progress from my perspective. Patience is the key here which many young talents and seemingly even more fans have little."

Shore’s Slant: I don't get where some of the "Langston sucks" stuff comes from. I hear it in email and see it on our forums. The guy has been in "the show" for three minutes. It's a little early to be proclaiming him either terrible or great.

-Ross on Dolph Ziggler: "Anxious to see what the next step in the progressive chart is for World Champion Dolph Ziggler who was a Jerry Brisco recruit during our days working together and after Dolph had a stellar career wrestling at Kent State. Ziggler is a special talent whether he be a friend or foe [whose] uncanny timing and natural athletic skills are next to impossible to find."

Shore’s Slant: JR also talks about Ryback, in ring work vs. mic work, Undertaker on Raw, UFC 159, and much more, including how much he loves working with developmental talent. That jibes with the rest of his blog as he talks about several talents, including the three above.
