WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on jrsbarbq.com. Here are highlights from this entry: - For NXT talents who may read my blogs and any other young talents who desire a career in WWE, you cannot and will not be successful if you only invest in yourself while you are “at work.” DVD study, reading books on the biz, success stories, self help books, regular gym workouts, etc are not optional in my view but are essential. That also includes being personally responsible with one’s finances to the extend of filing and paying one’s independent contract taxes every quarter. If one isn’t mature and professional enough to handle the very basic elements of personal finance, which is a law BTW, how can the same person be depended upon to became a viable member of the locker room over the long haul? Personal responsibility is a multi faceted element in the total development of a sports entertainer. Uncle Sam rarely loses a match. - It seems as if I never stop getting questions on who will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2014 in New Orleans. Obviously, there are a few former Mid South Wrestling stars that would be viable candidates including Danny Hodge, who is in every wrestling Hall of Fame known to man, I think, the Fabulous Freebirds, and Dr. Death Steve Williams to name a few that come off the top of my biased brain. - Was asked on my weekly radio hit on yahoosportsradio.com today with @SeanPendergast about the promo skills of @CMPunk and @HeymanHustle this past Monday on RAW. Quite simply, Heyman and Punk are at the top of the food chain when it comes to delivering, believeable, organic, suspend-my-disbelief. verbal presentations. They are themselves. They are passionate and they believe what they are saying to be absolute fact. Young wrestlers who can execute their promos in the same manner increase their chances to find success and reach the Promised Land. A bad actor playing the role of a pro wrestler cannot or will not succeed, at least in my opinion. Bottom line for young talents….embellish who you naturally are and let the chips fall where they may.
