Jim Ross says three British men performed well at NXT Takeover, and only two of them were in the ring.
On Saturday at NXT Takeover: Chicago, Pete Dunne became the second WWE United Kingdom Champion when he pinned Tyler Bate. Jim Ross was on commentary during the match and in his blog from Wednesday, he wrote about the two young wrestlers. Ross said he looks forward seeing more from the two wrestlers down the road.
"Congrats to the two young, British lads, Tyler Bate and Pete Dunne for tearing the house down Saturday night at the NXT Takeover Chicago event that featured a hot live audience. Bate, 20, and Dunne, 23, have bright futures in WWE if they continue to steer the course, always work to improve (their) in-ring and out-of-ring skills and never give anyone a reason to NOT want to do business with them. I like these two young men and look forward to adding a soundtrack to their work whenever I am called upon," wrote Ross.
His praise did not end there, Ross also seemed impressed with his broadcast partner.
"Seems as if the Brits stole the show in Chicago on Saturday night including my broadcast partner, Nigel McGuinness," wrote Ross.
Retired wrestler and commentator Nigel McGuinness has been on commentary for NXT lately and will be working with Ross on the WWE United Kingdom shows. Ross said Nigel has "terrific instincts and product knowledge", and he said he looks forward to working at the commentary booth with McGuinness.
Also in his blog, Ross talked about Raw, Smackdown, and his upcoming schedule of podcasts. His blog and podcasts can be found at JRsBarBQ.com.
