SummerSlam 2017 takes place this Sunday . The biggest event of the summer presents an ample and attractive poster with interesting combats, which will have great repercussions for the next months in WWE.
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry on his official website, which gives his thoughts on various topics. These are the highlights:
Ric Flair being hospitalized:
“I’ve heard that my long-time friend and the best lifelong professional wrestler, Ric Flair , is in intensive care hospital and has many of us worried . As I write this, no official information on the nature of Ric’s condition has been published, but heart problems are supposedly in the mix. Our thoughts are with Naitch and her whole family for a quick and complete recovery.
“Ric and I were sitting side by side on a USA Airways flight in the late 1980s when we both met my late wife, Jan. Ric likes to tell the story of how he ‘introduced’ Jan and me, So I encourage it because it makes you smile. “
The SummerSlam event this Sunday:
“With regard to SummerSlam, which I have great expectations for, I am anxious to see how Jinder Mahal and Shinsuke Nakamura face bell-to-bell, as this could be interesting. Both men have a lot to prove, at this stage and in this specific fight. Also, I am not of mind that Brock Lesnar will lose his universal title Sunday. I think this great main event is the genesis of the rival Lesnar vs. Strowman.
“I’ll be by the Barclay Center on Saturday night to see NXT TakeOver, which has quite a lot of appeal. TakeOver events never seem to disappoint. Great weekend of TV on WWE Network “.
