Jim Ross Blog: Lesnar/Taker, Lesnar At WM27, UFC Merger

Matt Boone

The following are highlights from the latest online blog of WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross:

JR on Brock Lesnar: "I assume it is ‘possible’ for Brock Lesnar to referee an Undertaker match at Wrestlemania but I don’t feel that it’s too probable for many reasons."

JR on a WWE Cruiserweight division: "Do I think that WWE will re-create Cruiserweight division? I have no idea but there is a general theory among many within the biz that branding a talent as a lightweight, Cruiserweight, etc makes them be perceived as less marketable and not on the level of the ‘heavyweights.’"

JR on UFC/WEC merger: "UFC merging with WEC is a smart move for UFC. It expands their talent roster with new faces for PPV and immediately creates new bouts to market. The smaller guys are dynamic and exciting to watch fight and will add in a positive way to UFC PPV presentations. Now the challenge for UFC is to integrate the former WEC talents into their marketing machine and begin to make new stars with which ‘casual fans’ can invest."
