WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross published a new blog entry on JrsBarBq.com. Here are some highlights.
WWE tryouts: “This camp was primarily made up of amateur wrestlers that included several, multi time All Americans, a Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist, a Pan American Games Gold Medalist, a couple of small college football players, and an active United States Navy Seal.
“All in all, 15 men went through their paces over two days with Friday and Saturday being broken up into two, approximate three hour sessions each.
“This was the best conditioned group of athletes that we’ve ever tried out and I’m fairly certain that WWE will offer multiple contracts to those that graded out the highest. I was hoping going in that we might be able to pick up two or so signees out of the 15 attending but that number could easily be doubled.”
The Wyatt Family: “Bray Wyatt and Family were on the road for WWE this weekend and were getting some positive and approiate reactions. The series of Wyatt Family vignettes is working.”
His spoken word tour in the U.K.: “Tickets for my first ever, Spoken Word tour which will take place in late August in the UK are still selling very well. As a matter of fact, the VIP tickets for London sold out in day one, Manchester has only about 25 VIP tickets remaining with Glasgow and Cardiff having less than 100 each.
