WWE Hall Of Famer, Jim Ross On What Matches Should Open And Close WWE Evolution

WWE Hall Of Famer, Jim Ross recently gave his thoughts on tonight’s WWE Evolution on his latest Ross Report podcast, discussing what should main event. Below are some highlights with a H/T to Rajah.com for the transcriptions.

Which match should main event:

“Somebody says the advances were a bit slow. I haven’t heard that other than online from a couple of people. But if you can, if you’re a wrestling fan, get to Long Island on the 28th of October and enjoy the Rousey/Nikki Bella match, Charlotte and Becky in a last woman standing match, which I think should close the show. It probably won’t. Kairi Sane versus Shayna Baszler, NXT [Women’s] title. I love that match. I love that pairing. Then you’ve got the tag match that a lot of people are looking forward to. What [do]Trish and Lita have left in their tanks? I hope that’s not politically incorrect. Because they’re taking on Alexa Bliss, who is red-hot, in her prime, and Mickie James, who is that great veteran who seemingly keeps reinventing herself. And I’m looking forward to that match. That match could go on first as far as I’m concerned. Why not? Star power kicking it off. Lita and Trish are big time, so maybe. The battle royal is on the card. That’s going to be interesting. And then, the Mae Young Classic final will be on that card, I’m told.”

Which match JR thinks should open the PPV:

“So the big question out of that, it’s going to be a hell of a show. I hope you watch it on WWE Network, but, again, the debate’s ongoing as to who is going to close the show and who opens the show. I just told you my pick. I would pick Charlotte and Becky to close the show in spectacular fashion with death defying athleticism and physicality. I say that wink, wink, not death, not real death, but you know what I’m saying. Do you know what I’m saying?” Ross added, “and I’d open the show, I think, with the tag match, Lita and Trish against Alexa Bliss and Mickie James because there is a lot of star power and it gets people emotionally invested early! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.”

On Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair reminding him of Dusty Rhodes and Ric Flair:

“Let me tell you, nothing tops, again, the Becky and Charlotte storyline, and I just believe they have great chemistry. They have that great rivalry. It’s great stuff folks. Enjoy it while it’s here, while it’s going on. That’s one of the great rivalries. That’s like Dusty and Naitch. It’s just one of those rivalries that seemingly has no end, so I don’t want this to end, but we know it will. But, boy, in the meantime, I’m going to eat up all of it that I can. Without a doubt.”
