-Ross on Monday’s WWE Raw: “Overall, I thought Raw was a solid broadcast but at times it felt like I was being overwhelmed with content. That might be more of an indication of my age or the way I enjoy watching TV and less an indictment on the program. Sometimes I think many wrestling shows cram too much in their hour or two hour format and forget that the vast majority of the viewers have much info to retain in their lives in a 144 hour week.”
-Ross on John Morrison: “Watching John Morrison Monday night, I thought back to the early, early days of HBK and how athletic, quick and innovative Shawn was early in his career which made many of us feel that he was going to be a star from the beginning. Morrison will never, like HBK, be the biggest dog in the fight, but offensive innovation and being unique could take Morrison a long way. I wish he was a Friday night regular but that’s my personal bias coming thru. If John Morrison can approach Shawn Michaels’ level of success, Morrison will then have had a helluva run.”
-Ross on the Tribute to the Troops show: “Many within the the WWE are bound for Iraq, I assume, for the annual ‘Tribute to the Troops’ which will air on NBC later in December. Each individual that makes the trip will come back a better person from what others have told me about their experience of interacting with the troops who so bravely serve our country. I would love to make this trip someday before all is said and done for me in the business. I could always arrange a trip after my WWE days come to a close so there is always hope. My friend Toby Keith goes over to entertain our troops regularly so perhaps I could hitch a ride with my fellow Oklahoman. Nonetheless I admire all the people in the WWE who make this journey and for what they do for the Armed Forces.”
