Jim Ross Talks WWE & NXT On The Ross Report

On a recent episode of his Ross Report podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross recently spent some time talking about the upcoming Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar showdown at WWE SummerSlam, as well as the current crop of talent in NXT. Featured below are some of the highlights.

On Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns closing SummerSlam being a potential problem: "Reigns and Lesnar I guess will go on last at SummerSlam. I assume that. I don't know that. But if it is the last match of a long night, is that position you want to have your Universal title displayed under? I'm not sure. I'm not sure at all and I wonder what kind of reaction these two gentlemen are going to receive from the live audience. And if it is overtly negative, is that the image or the sound that you go off the air with? Just my question."

On The Undisputed Era and Aleister Black: "I love Roderick Strong. I love Adam Cole. Kyle O'Reilly's really good. Gosh, I mean there's a ton of talents and I'm going to leave out a bunch of guys. I like Aleister Black. I mean, their cupboards aren't bare by any stretch."

On it being hard to pick just one talent that stands above the rest in NXT right now: "It's hard to name one guy who stands out head and shoulders above everybody else because I believe it's that competitive, and I think, as fans, for us, that's a good thing. The NXT guys have done a tremendous job in recruiting [and] scouting talents. So there's a lot of parity, so at some point, natural athleticism, acquiring their skillsets, improving their skillsets, will set in and then talents will start distancing themselves. But, right now, a lot of those guys are nose-to-nose. But Strong and Cole, you can't go wrong with either of those two picks. And it's time for them. It's time for them to tell a great story, and come in, and blow the audience away, and they can do that."
