SuperStar Shakeup Thoughts, The Deuce is on the Loose, @MsCharlotteWWE, Miz & Maryse, @iLikeSamiZayn, the Sleeper?

Greetings one and all and thanks for the visit to our site. Excited about our new, Ross Report Podcast with Debra Miceli aka Madusa that is available now at iTunes, www.podcastone.com and right here on our homepage. 'Deuce is a helluva guest with strong opinions and great stories and experiences. Take a minutia and hit iTunes on our behalf and leave the all important feedback and a potential, five star rating. We appreciate it.

Heading to LAX soon to join Josh Barnett at the AXSTV studios to voice over seven, NJPW shows that will air on Friday nights at 8/7 CT.  With AXS starting to edit their own NJPW shows the turn around time will be greatly reduced.

We are on Facebook at JimRossBBQ.

Enjoyed jumping on Chicago's ESPN 1000 with Jonathan Hood Tuesday night to promote our RINGSIDE Show at the Zanies in Rosemont on Backlash Sunday afternoon at 2 pm before the WWE's extravaganza in the All State Arena later that night. General Admission tickets are available for only $30 while they last at www.ticketfly.com. Our show time is 2 PM and will end at approximately 3:30 which gives everyone plenty of time to make the easy, three mile drive from Zanies to the Arena for Backlash.Excited to have @JeremyBorash with us again as our MC.

Superstar Shakeup Thoughts:

I like the concept of freshening up the rosters therefore creating new rivalries and matches. The success of failure of this exercise is going to be largely be up to the talents to be able to make whatever they are handed, work.

Legit stars generally find a way but they have to be confident, bold and willing to take a chance notwithstanding doing all that they can to improve their respective game every day to some degree.

Both brands seem to have had good nights with the reimbursement of key talents. Only time  will tell regarding this matter if it will be considered a success or not but it looks as if it's off to a good start.

Charlotte is a great choice to build the SDLIVE Women's division around as she's potentially the Austin/Rock equivalent in the world of WWE women's wrestling. Athletes, no matter their gender, don't come along like @MsCharlotteWWE perhaps once in a generation, if we're lucky.

New Day adds to the star power of SDLIVE plus it also provides the brand multiple options going forward as it relates to the three, talented athletes.

Excited to see the continued growth and TV persona development between Miz and Maryse who I feel have just scratched the surface on how good they can become.

Love that Dean Ambrose is going to RAW as it gives him, like everyone else, a timely, fresh start. Ambrose is another talent who should continue to improve and up his game as he has "it" and should be able to contribute at the top of the card for years to come if he remains committed to being better tomorrow than he is today.

That analogy goes for all of us in every walk of life...be better tomorrow than we were today.

The potential of Rusev and Lana is untapped and the better they both become in their respective and unique roles the more money this married couple can earn. I embrace their upside. The toughest learning curve might be for Lana who is compelled to master the skill set of her unique role.

The female aspect of the RAW roster also has some potentially intriguing storylines. I like that talent mix especially the skilled Mickie James and rising star Alexa Bliss and what they can bring to the Monday night brand.

Kevin Owens who is one of my favorite in ring talents currently in the biz is a terrific 'get' for SDLIVE as he can carry any title and have main event level bouts with a variety of his peers. The "Big Cowboy" would have loved @FightOwensFight. 

Saw another glimpse of just how good Sami Zayn can be this week and hope that him going to SD will provide Sami the opportunity that he needs to elevate himself on the roster. Zayn has an amazing skill set.

Bottom line on the Superstar Shakeup is that it feels like WWE got their choices right but it will, again, be largely up to the talents to make this game plan work. Time will tell but this will work if the talents involved take this opportunity to up their focus, preparation and other significant aspects of their vocation.

Enjoyed the Reigns-Strowman business Monday night on RAW. It felt like an old school, Mid South matter from back in the day. It will be even more effective if Roman Reigns is away for a extended length of time 'recovering.' 

Nakamura is the most unique, main event, fan favorite talent that WWE has promoted in years and arguably forever. Asian, fan favorites are a rarity in North America but the fans seem to adore the charismatic former MMA star.

According to Renee Young's Twitter, she and Dean Ambrose are married. My congrats to both these very nice people and I wish them years of happiness.

AJ Styles is arguably and potentially the hottest fan favorite currently residing on WWE TV who is not officially on that side of the fence. It's tough to boo a wrestler in today's presentation of the genre who is a s good as AJ.

Order JR's online with fast, home delivery from www.wweshop.com and in Britain and Europe from www.americansoda.co.uk. Thanks!

For those asking my thoughts on the Mauro Ranallo status, I cover that in this week's Ross Report Podcast that's available to be downloaded for free from iTunes and www.podcastone.com.

The Q&A's here on the site are undated.

Enjoy your day and count your blessings and remember that our tomorrow's are never guaranteed.

 Boomer Sooner!

Thank you for the updates! It's nice to know. cool text
After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS
I wake up everyday with a smile on my face and singing praises to this powerful spell caster called Dr,Abaka who has done me a great favor by rescuing my relationship from break up. I used to think that i have a perfect relationship till when my lover started coming home late and everyday he gives me different excuses then i decided to keep a close eye on him then i discovers that he was having an affair with another Woman, I was heart broken because i trusted him so much and knowing that he has a secret relationship, hurts me a lot.. But i thank all those who placed the contact information of Dr,Abaka on the internet because through that i have been able to contact Dr, and today my relationship has been restored with love and more Respect than ever before. If you are in any kind of relationship or marriage stress i will do you a favor by dropping the contact information's of Dr,Abaka which are via email: ( drabakaspelltemple@gmail.com OR call visit https://drabakaspelltemple.blogspot.com).
