– Jim Ross updated his blog over at jrsbarbq.com and with the WWE Network doing pre and post shows on their they have two guys hosting it (Alex Riley and Josh Mathews) One commentator to another, JR gives his two cents in on their skills:
Impressed with Alex Riley on the pre-game and post-game ‘panel’ on the WWE Network. Alex comes by his talking skills naturally and seemingly has a long, productive future in his current role. I enjoyed working with Alex in NXT and feel he’s a potential star on the Network.
Host Josh Mathews also seemed more comfortable in his host role on the panel but the panelists talking over each other endlessly needs to lessen. I think that these pre and post-game shows have unlimited potential. I like the casting of Mathews in this new role.
Andrews Take: They have potential, but do they have the skills to be the next Jim Ross? No not even close. There is only one Jim Ross.
