Jim Ross goes off on the status of heels in WWE

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Not sure what prompted this but more, please!

Late last night, former WWE play-by-play man Jim Ross took to Twitter and, for whatever reason, decided to absolutely go off on the status of heels in pro wrestling. We have no idea what prompted this, but considering the source, it's worth taking a look at what he had to say.

As our friend Scott Christ was quick to point out, this is why Batista is doing such a phenomenal job right now. He is nearly universally reviled and he plays that up to the fullest. He could care less about being cool. Once they turned him heel, he took all the qualities fans hate about him and turned them up to 11.

Now consider the rest of the roster and ask yourself if Ross has a point about too many heels trying to be too cool. That's not to say it can't work -- the nWo was the coolest heel stable in history, but they were full of cowards who cheated constantly -- but it goes against the old school mentality Ross works on.
