The Jim Ross Report Recap w/ Rob Van Dam – New “Headstrong” Documentary, The Lost Art of Selling, Should WWE Split WrestleMania Into 2 Days? More!
Ross begins today’s show by sending his thoughts and condolences out to the family and friends of Pedro Morales, who passed away this week. Ross calls Morales one of the all time greats, and notes that he’s one of the few people who was respected by everyone in the business and you never heard a bad word about him.
Ross thought this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw was a “mixed bag”. He liked the Becky Lynch storyline, and notes that Lynch is the hottest performer in the company right now. He can’t see a scenario where Lynch won’t be involved in the main event of WrestleMania with Ronda Rousey and Charlotte.
Ross thinks Rousey brought a lot of new eyes to WWE’s Women’s Division, and he thinks that opened the door for the women to accomplish more. He notes that maybe the triple threat match at WrestleMania will be a double elimination match, where the winner will have to pick up two pinfalls to win. This could really make the winner look like a star.
Ross sends congratulations out to The Revival, who won the RAW Tag Team Titles this past week. He thinks those guys have a chance to bring real tag team wrestling back to WWE if they’re given the right opportunities.
