Jim Ross updated the blog section of Here are a few highlights.

Ross on the new NXT: “The rebranding of NXT at Full Sail University on Thursday night was exciting. It’s great to be provided the opportunity to help with any new, WWE venture especially one that will help facilitate young talents the opportunity to move to the main WWE roster perhaps a little faster.

Yours truly broadcast all four programs working with William Regal, Bryon Saxton and Chris Russo in various incarnations. Several young talents stood out Thursday night but arguably the best match of the night was Tyson Kidd vs. Michael McGillicutty that was recorded early in the evening. This match was outstanding in my view and was one of the best bouts that I’ve seen on any WWE TV show in the past several weeks.”

Ross on John Laurinaitis vs. John Cena: “‘Over the Limit’ features WWE’s top antagonist, John Laurinaitis, versus WWE’s top fan favorite, John Cena, in what I expect to be a match chocked full of surprises. How can it not be loaded with twists and turns? Laurinaitis, a former star in Japan and outstanding flag bearer for the Sheepherders aka Bushwhackers, is cornered with his job on the line. Obviously, it doesn’t take the class Valedictorian to figure out that ‘Big Johnny’ needs a few cards up his sleeve because to think that ‘Big Johnny’ can actually beat Cena one on one is a violation of my own, personal wellness/sanity test.”

Ross on CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan: “Punk and Daniel have traveled many miles, figuratively together, and now finally get the opportunity on a WWE PPV to display their skills in a main event forum against each other. I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to this match and would be willing to buy the PPV if only for this bout. The subtleties that these two, skilled artisans of the squared circle possess and will utilize plus the story that they will tell is an announcer’s dream.”
