Jim Ross hopes the best for Paige, while also talking about WWE's new signees.
On his blog, Jim Ross talked about Paige's possible career ending injury. He's hopeful that she may look to other skill sets and refine those for another role within WWE.
Saddened to read of Paige's neck injury is apparently going to take her out of the ring for good. I was happy to see Paige on RAW Monday night and I know that she can remain a viable figure in the @WWE if she chooses to invest in herself and in the next skill sets that she will need to refine.
Paige has a unique personality that can be amended to allow her to excel in what could be multiple assignments going forward.
Don't count her out.
He also spoke about the signings of War Machine and Ricochet to WWE. Since he is familiar with their work, calling their matches on AXS TV, Ross knows all of them well and feels they'll be good fits on the WWE roster:
From calling their bouts in NJPW for AXSTV the past few years, I've become a fan of the tag team of War Machine, a throw back tag team that has IMO an unlimited upside. Along with a healthy, Revival, these teams will definitely strengthen WWE's talent roster and tag team scene.
Ricochet is a great 'get' for WWE IMO as he's one of the most dynamic offensive wrestlers in the world for sure.
Ross also addressed the notion that talents don't have any say in how they are portrayed on television -- he feels that it's up to them to get themselves over and get to the next level. Those who say otherwise, he says, are people who avoided responsibility to steer their own ship in their career:
WWE has assembled an amazing array of talents, both male and female, that excites me for their future. Next up is to see what talents become more 'hands on' as it relates to their in ring style and TV personal that will get a small handful to the next level of main event money.
Please don't try to sell me on the fact that Talents don't have any thing to say about how they are portrayed and how well they develop their bell to bell personas. The only ones who say that and hope that you might believe them are those wresters who had rather fade the heat and avoid responsibility than attempt to steer their own ship when it comes to, specifically, bell to bell.
