PLAYERS: Randy OrtonPaul Heyman

Jim Ross has posted his latest blog, discussing Randy Orton, Paul Heyman’s Twitter rant and more. Check out the highlights:

On Orton’s suspension: “Amazed at the amount of questions we have received on Twitter @JRsBBQ regarding Randy Orton’s 60 suspension from WWE for a 2nd violation of WWE’s Wellness Policy. Not too sure what there is to not understand even though some followers would have likely been better off outside playing with their friends than asking “What is a Wellness Policy?” Others have questioned the need for such a policy which I find absurdly stupid, not the policy but the questioning why one is needed. Bottom line is that the business as always been about such things as “when one door closes, another door opens” and that “being in the right place at the right time” and both are still valid and viable in today’s ever changing world and that includes sports entertainment.”

On Paul Heyman’s rant: “As @HeymanHustle pointed out on Twitter earlier this week and as I’ve mentioned here many times, talents need to become much more motivated and aggressive in obtaining meaningful exposure and then ‘maximizing their minutes.’ As the old sales cliche goes, one won’t get the order until one asks for it. To add to that cliche with another, one can’t sell goods out of an empty wagon. Translation…do what ever is necessary to professionally and legally get noticed and then be able to back it up once your number is called. There has never been a more opportune time for talents who have the drive, determination, ingenuity, and physical talent to elevate as roster depth at the top of the card is ripe for the pickings. If one is afraid to break a few eggs to make the omlet, IE afraid to raise the ire of the establishment to make their point or to facilitate an opportunity, then you’re likely in the wrong business and remember that the lack of assertiveness, with attitude, likely means failure in other walks of life as well. “

On his food products: “I expect various wrestling websites to reprint parts of this blog and only wish more of them would follow the lead of the minority and let fans know that we have a business we are attempting to build at http://www.wweshop.com/Category/JimRoss.”

On Heyman: “Paul likely did not give himself enough credit for the natural talent that he has and that I saw in him when he was a 23 year old in WCW with who most management people did not want to work. Paul could be caustic, abrasive, and hard to work with for some but I saw a natural born antagonist/talker and pushed strongly for Paul to become my partner in Atlanta for Turner’s organization. Were there days that I questioned my decision? Absolutely. However, great talkers and TV villains aren’t easily manufactured, if at all, and the life long fan and student of the business and I had a combustible team that was, hopefully, fun to listen to back in the day. Yes, there were days in WCW that Heyman legitimately drove me borderline insane and truly tested my patience but what we documented on the air was a unique dynamic that, by and large, isn’t provided in today’s marketplace. “

On TNA’s live Impact: “Getting questions of what I thought of Thursday night’s TNA show. I never saw it as I was all in with the @okcthunder vs. San Antonio on TNT. Plus, any comment I make on TNA is generally considered ‘cryptic’ or comes with some outlandish conspiracy theory. Bottom line, I don’t watch their broadcasts regularly enough to evaluate them and if I did what purpose would it serve? I do have many friends there and hope that they have success.”

On FCW: “I’m headed down to Tampa soon to spend a few days at FCW next week. Should be an especially rewarding few days considering all that’s going on there. The upside of several young talents is significant but I’m unaware of their timelines as to when they may be called up to WWE. I personally feel that much of getting called up is up to the talents by making themselves more ‘must see.’ “

On Damien Sandow: “Really am enjoying how WWE has introduced Damien Sandow to Smackdown. Sandow meant something to the viewer when he had his first TV match thanks to vignettes, etc. How a talent is introduced and how they execute their end of the equation is supremely imperative for any young talent.”

On Lesnar’s possible UFC return: “What would I think of Brock Lesnar attempting to become a ‘two sport’ guy and perform in WWE and fight in UFC at the same time frame? I’d suggest that it would be ill advised and that it can’t be done on the highest level of each genre in an efficient manner. Obviously, a person could do it, theoretically, and enhance his earnings over the short haul but it seems as if it would be too taxing an issue on one’s body to attempt such a feat. I have no idea is that idea is even on Lesnar’s radar but we’ve gotten the question here a great deal. I’m not in touch with Brock and haven’t been for years so my take on the matter is merely one man’s opinion.”
