WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what JR said about:

Thursday’s NXT Tapings: “The NXT TV taping was another great learning experience for all involved. Tag Title tournament culminated along w/ several Divas getting significant TV exposure. As w/ any TV taping, some facets were better than others but in developmental that’s the nature of the beast. Working in WWE Talent Development is a wonderful assignment for me and allows me to contribute to WWE’s future & give back to our business. Helping the young broadcasters is extremely rewarding for me. Being able to offer positive motivation to all those who are just beginning they’ve career journey is rewarding & allows me to come away from each assignment feeling better about my day.”

WWE’s Weekend Tryout CampIn Tampa, FL: “The NXT tryouts started somewhat slowly on an extremely long Friday but Saturday was a superb day. The retention from Friday to Saturday w/ the drills was exceptional. Focus was improved, everyone seemed to be more comfortable. Fun day.”

“Sunday will wrap up the process for the 30+ young men who were invited. Promos & more matches on tap before we wrap things up. If we can replicate the productivity we experienced Saturday, I’d expect a nice handful of offers to be extended over the next few weeks. Getting a WWE contract is daunting but well worth the effort and sacrifices it takes to get a shot at the Promised Land.”

“I choose to mention no names as that wouldn’t be professional in my opiomion but I’ve compiled my short list of those seriously in the hunt.”
