WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross was recently interviewed by Pop Culture to promote his new book, “Slobberknocker: My Life In Wrestling.” He discussed a number of topics, including who he would take if he was starting a wrestling promotion, his thoughts on Roman Reigns, Sasha Banks and Bray Wyatt, and more.
Below are some highlights from the interview:
If Ross were to start his own promotion tomorrow, which WWE Superstar would he bring along?
“I would probably take, because it would be instant credibility to get me started with my imaginary company, Brock Lesnar.”
“Because he’s got name identity, durability, believability, and he would probably more closely represent my stylistic approach that I would probably want to take if I was spending my own money to create a wrestling product.”
Should WWE consider altering Roman Reigns’ big push?
“Well, I think you just got to continue to allow him to be pretty good. You know, whenever the time is opportune. He is better than pretty good and a good kid, realgood kid. Very committed.”
“There’s nothing you say on TV, there’s no pillow vignettes, let’s change his music, let’s change his hair color, let’s change his outfit. You know, let’s change for change’s sake. Let’s change not knowing the selection, but just change for change sake. Because well, it might work. It might not. Steer the course and not be so wrapped up in getting him accepted as a fan favorite or a villain. I accept him as a star. And that’s what Roman Reigns is, he’s a star.”
Which floundering superstar will be a WWE Champion next?
“Probably Sasha,” he said. “I think Bray Wyatt’s an amazing upside. I think he’s a character baby face and I think Sasha Banks is a neutral hee.”
“Bray Wyatt to me is, you don’t have an audience that supports your entrance by being a firefly if they don’t like you,” he reasoned.So I think there’s a foundation there to be a very bizarre, mysterious character babyface.”
“Sasha seems to be at her base, she seems to be at this, as a TV character, as far as how she comes across in my living room when she has a little edge to her and just a little bit of a heel.”
