It would seem that legendary Wrestling analyst, Jim Ross is sorry for his appearance on Dark Side of the Ring; especially the episode entitled “Plane Ride from Hell,” in which Ric Flair and Tommy Dreamer were essentially painted in a bad light, and suffered extreme consequences that have by now undoubtedly made the rounds of wrestling news and rumors: Flair’s possible AEW debut halted indefinitely, and Dreamer suspended from Impact indefinitely.
Ross feels like the episodes (others as well), might be bad for the industry overall and such accounts (like those seen on the show), might hurt the business and its legends in the long run. He made these comments on a recent episode of Grilling JR.
“…I like those guys. They’re two creators, hard-working young guys, but I didn’t like the show. I thought it was way too negative, and it impacted too many people negatively, I thought. I’ve offended a lot of people by being on that show, which I apologize for…”via Grilling JR /webisjericho.com (Transcription)
Bronson Reed hints at return to the ring and why he wasn’t at Bound For Glory
By stating that he wasn’t at Bound For Glory because of Visa issues, essentially tells one and all where he’s headed in all probability, but he’s still keeping it an overall secret for now—as far as being ‘on the record’ is concerned.
So yeah, just where he’ll end up isn’t official yet, but he states that his legal staff has made it okay for him to wrestle in the states now, so a return to the pro wrestling ring is surely imminent. Fans have been waiting to see him wrestle again for quite some time.
“…It’s a complete nightmare. That’s how it works, but no issues. Everything’s pretty much set in stone now. I have a great set of lawyers, actually, helping me out. As of next week, things should be set in stone for me to be able to work places. I’m not gonna say anything, but I think in November, you’ll get to see Jonah around some places.
At the moment, it’s everything to do with immigration, so I’m not able, legally, to do anything wrestling-wise until all my immigration is sorted, but it should be sorted very soon, and I’m very happy about that…”via webisjericho.com
Owens hints at WWE contract expiry on Raw – hinting at…
Well…it was only a little while ago that he would make an interesting statement on social media…a picture of Mount Rushmore, suggesting that perhaps he would reunite with the Elite…a post that was then quickly deleted, and now this:
“It might be for 3 more months, or 3 more years, that doesn’t matter. What matters, is every single time I’m on Raw, you can believe I will do everything I can to give the WWE Universe something to remember.”via Kevin Owens /Monday Night Raw
These were the words he uttered on WWE’s Monday Night Raw broadcast. Talk about guts, friends. He certainly has the necessary guts to speak his mind , no matter the constraints put on him by the company right now (WWE).
This can also mean though, that he has a contract extension coming up, or he can re-sign and stay with WWE after all…he is a family man, and the offer might be right; he’s obviously very smart too.
On the other hand, AEW might offer him something way better, and the treatment he’s received in WWE hasn’t been stellar despite his capabilities and the crowd reaction he gets, so time will tell.
