Jim Ross comments on WWE and Tim Tebow, WWE pre-game shows, an impressive NXT prospect
May 6, 2013 - 02:02 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 Tim Tebow in WWE: "My idea that Tim Tebow might find success in WWE apparently struck a chord with some media types. It's not the worst idea I've ever spewed. Tebow is young, 25, big and athletic, enjoys working with charitable organizations ala Make a Wish Foundation, etc and is coachable. Tim could be a positive role model in the ring and touch lives around the world via the WWE's global footprint. (Of course, being a positive role model in the ring in today's world often times means getting booed out of the building.) Is Tebow to WWE a long shot? Absolutely. I doubt, but don't know, that it's ever been seriously discussed within the WWE. But it's certainly an intriguing idea if for nothing else for a well constructed, long term storyline that could culminate at WrestleMania 30 in New Orleans."

Powell's POV: As Ross noted, it's definitely a long shot. It would make huge headlines for WWE if it happened. He would out-nice John Cena. Forget Cena turning heel, just imagine the box office potential of a Tebow heel turn someday! Okay, I may be getting just a tad ahead of myself.

-Ross on WWE pay-per-view pre-game shows: "For those that have asked, I am unaware of when WWE will have another on-site, pre and post game show for a PPV. If I had to simply guess, I'd assume it would be at Summer Slam but that's far from official. I'm also not aware of what talents would appear on said show if one does air. Personally, I had a great time participating in the last one but I'm not sure that many fans were aware of it or even watched it nor do I know if it will be on the WM29 DVD."

Powell's POV: I really enjoyed the pre-game show concept and would like to see it added for all major pay-per-view events at the very least. I can't say I'm crazy about WWE announcing a 30-minute pre-Raw show on Yahoo every week, but I'd keep an eye on it if it were done in his format.

-Ross on an NXT prospect: "Keep an eye on Enzo Amore in NXT as he made a great, first impression on yours truly last Thursday night at the NXT taping at Full Sail. Significant, verbal upside. Not that familiar with his in ring work yet."

Powell's POV: You can check out Enzo's NXT bio at FCWwrestling.com.
