• WWE Hall Of Famer Comments On The Danger Of Closing SummerSlam 2018 With Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns
During a recent edition of the Jim Ross Report, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross talked about the danger of closing SummerSlam 2018 with Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns, who the next big star in NXT will be & more.
Below are the highlights:
On who the next big star in NXT will be:
“I love Roderick Strong. I love Adam Cole. Kyle O’Reilly’s really good. Gosh, I mean there’s a ton of talents and I’m going to leave out a bunch of guys. I like Aleister Black. I mean, their cupboards aren’t bare by any stretch.
It’s hard to name one guy who stands out head and shoulders above everybody else because I believe it’s that competitive and I think, as fans, for us, that’s a good thing. The NXT guys have done a tremendous job in recruiting and scouting talents.
So there’s a lot of parity, so at some point, natural athleticism, acquiring their skillsets, improving their skillsets, will set in and then talents will start distancing themselves. But, right now, a lot of those guys are nose-to-nose.
But Strong and Cole, you can’t go wrong with either of those two picks. And it’s time for them. It’s time for them to tell a great story, and come in, and blow the audience away, and they can do that.”
On the danger of closing SummerSlam 2018 with Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns:
“Reigns and Lesnar I guess will go on last at SummerSlam. I assume that. I don’t know that. But if it is the last match of a long night, is that position you want to have your Universal title displayed under? I’m not sure.
I’m not sure at all and I wonder what kind of reaction these two gentlemen are going to receive from the live audience. And if it is overtly negative, is that the image or the sound that you go off the air with? Just my question.”
