Jim Ross Talks: WWE Brand Split, TNA Going Head-To-Head With Smackdown + More

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry over at his website where he gives his thoughts on the WWE brand extension and more. Here are the highlights.

On the WWE brand split:

The WWE brand split should be perceived by logical, non knee jerk, pro wrestling fans as a good thing IMO. For those who build their arguments against this matter by saying that “WWE always screws thins up, etc. ” I suggest that those individuals retreat to their room and engage in more social media.
The separation should be a clean split and feature no random intermingling and therefore making the opportunities for when both RAW and Smackdown rosters are together be special occasions. Both brands need tag teams, women, cruisers (placeholder name) a nice nucleolus of main event names and both brands need some new call up’s.

On NXT:

NXT also figures into this matter prominently and I don’t see WWE disabling their third brand whatsoever, but NXT also doesn’t need as many viable bodies to make it successful. That’s not a knock but merely a fact as I’m a big, NXT fan.

On TNA possibly changing timeslots:

My suggestion to TNA is to tweak their Tuesday start time to avoid wrestling fan’s having to make a decision of which wrestling show to watch, a live, Smackdown or a taped Impact Wrestling. For TNA to go head to head against WWE on Tuesday nights is ill advised.

Ross also talked about his upcoming projects, you can read the entire blog here.
