It’s been no surprise to those listening that recently, famous WWE Announcer Jim Ross had been quite vocal about changing brands in his weekly online blogs. He says that most fans probably don’t care about announcers changing brands and that the moves should be reserved for the wrestlers, pretty much indicating that he wasn’t too keen on leaving his position on Raw.

Well, judging by J.R.’s reaction at the announcement, he didn’t look too pleased to say the least.

Aside from now being split from his longtime co-worker, close friend and travel buddy Jerry “The King” Lawler, Ross’s travel routine will be totally different. After all WWE has put Jim Ross through over the years and as somebody who has so much going on outside of the wrestling world (his restaraunt chain, offers to commentate college football on a regular basis), its shocking the WWE would pull this on him.

Taken straight from JR’s blog last Saturday regarding the draft: “I swear that I don’t think that even as I write this on Saturday that the draft has been finalized. If you are like many wrestling fans, including me, and like surprises then Monday night is certainly the night for you. I would wager a case of “J.R.’S BBQ Sauce” that virtually no talent knows for sure what fate awaits them come Monday night,” Ross wrote. “I was asked by a WWE fan in the DFW Airport on Friday afternoon if I thought any of the announcers would be drafted and I answered “no” because at the end of the day does any one truly care who announces what brand and the same goes for the referees. I would be shocked to see any draft pick wasted on an announcer or a referee as WWE fans want to see major superstars change addresses and begin new rivalries along with making fresh matches.”

So what’s your thoughts on the draft? Change for change sake? Good moves for all?
