• Jim Ross Comments On If Impact Wrestling Should Sign Big Cass & Enzo Amore

During a recent edition of The Jim Ross Report, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross spoke on being recruited for ALL IN, not being asked to work Mae Young Classic 2, if Impact Wrestling should sign Big Cass & Enzo Amore and more.

Below are the highlights:

On being recruited for ALL IN:

“I’m going to go to OU football that day. It’s the season opener. I’ve got my priorities. I passed up a good booking from Connie. Connie tried to recruit me. I would love to be there, but I’ve got my priorities, folks, and mine is OU football during the football season.”

On not being asked to work Mae Young Classic 2:

“I’m excited about the Mae Young Classic this year. I enjoyed broadcasting it last year with fellow WWE Hall Of Famer Lita, Amy Dumas. A lot of fun there. I was never crazy about my work on there. We did all those matches twice as a matter of fact. And maybe it was just me. I didn’t get into a good rhythm. And I didn’t get asked back. That’s the bottom line of that deal! But, as [Jerry] ‘The King’ [Lawler] would say, ladies and gentlemen, ‘one can’t grieve forever.’

But I am excited about this because I’m a big fan of women’s athletics. I’m an OU women’s basketball season ticket holder. I went to the women’s college world series in Oklahoma City [Oklahoma]. I love all that stuff. And I want to see these women finally get their break and get the shackles off of them where they have a chance to be stars and earn money like the men. It’s as simple as that.”

On if Impact Wrestling should sign Big Cass & Enzo Amore:

“I see where Big Cass has announced his first post-WWE appearance. He’s going to be appearing at Big Time Wrestling’s upcoming event on Friday, September 21st [2018] at the Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium in Spartanburg, South Carolina. I have been there. Cass is being advertised as Big Cazz, C-A-Z-Z. That’s about as close as you can get. They’re both consonance and you’ve got to wonder if Impact Wrestling has got their eye on this guy. Under the right circumstance, getting all the stars aligned, I still believe Big Cazz has great potential.

Now, I understand too, I’ve said it before on the air, potential [does not] buy the groceries. Somewhere along the way, you’ve got to get to that level where they can’t do without you. So that’s the road he’s on now. He’s going back. So you look at somebody making an impact, what about Impact Wrestling having Enzo Amore, under whatever name, and Big Cazz, on their show? Worse things could happen, right? So, and by the way, Bound For Glory is going to be in New York City, Queens’ Melrose Ballroom in October, so who knows who you might see there? We wish them all the best of luck.”

• Vince McMahon Personally Contacts Former WWE Diva For WWE Evolution PPV

Former WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee was signed by the WWE in 2009 where she spent two years in their developmental brand, FCW (Florida Championship Wrestling). Then a few years later, she was called up to the main roster.

Fast forwarding to 2012, she was pushed as a top star in the Divas division and even had a three-month stint as the General Manager of WWE’s flagship show, Monday Night RAW. She won the Divas Championship a record-tying three times and even held it for a record of 406 days.

She retired from in-ring competition in 2015 and has not been seen on WWE television since her and Paige defeated The Bella Twins in a Tag Team Match at WrestleMania 31.

WWE recently had a poll asking fans which former women’s wrestler they would like to see at the upcoming Evolution PPV. AJ Lee won the poll with a landslide victory.

It is being reported now that AJ Lee has been contacted by WWE in regards to an in-ring return. Vince McMahon personally sent her a message that she would be welcomed back in WWE for their WWE Evolution PPV or a later date of her choosing. WWE made it clear that the door is open.

However, her return seems unlikely as she claimed in her book that she had permanent damage to her cervical spine and that was part of the reason for her retirement. She also claimed that she felt like she was in the middle of the legal battle between WWE and her husband CM Punk.
