Jim Ross is, arguably, the greatest announcer in the history of professional wrestling.

As a man with such a golden standing in the industry, his thoughts carry a certain weight to them. His weekly blog - which can be found at jrsbarbq.com - always contains interesting insights into the business and he often critiques what he sees on WWE television.

The latest topic to grab his attention was WWE champion Dean Ambrose's comments aboout his match with Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 32 on Stone Cold Steve Austin's podcast.

Ambrose suggested that Lesnar was "lazy" and wasn't interested on putting on any kind of classic. Reading between the lines would suggest that the Beast Incarnate was already thinking about his UFC return and the Lunaic Fringe insinuated he was happy to turn up to WrestleMania solely for the payday.

Ross, who signed Lesnar to the WWE way back in 2000 as part of his talent relations role, offered his perspective on the situation, especially after Daniel Bryan appeared to concur with Ambrose on the post-Smackdown LIVE show, Talking Smack.

"Interesting comments made this week by Dean Ambrose and by Daniel Bryan regarding Brock Lesnar being 'lazy.' If true, and I'm not saying that it is as I'm not around Lesnar whatsoever, could it be because Brock is residing the dreaded 'comfort zone' which is an area that adversely affects professional careers in many fields and certainly negatively affects relationships of all kinds?"

JR also added: "The next time Lesnar and Ambrose are booked together should be most interesting."

It's more speculative from JR than anything else, but still, he has already spelt it out for us. Lesnar may well be comfortable as a part-time draw who earns big money. He is not the kind of star that has to do anything out of the ordinary.

He can turn up, german suplex people, F5 people, and get paid. He's obviously happy with that, but it would appear some superstars are not.

What do you think: should Lesnar be giving more to the WWE considering the sweet deal that he gets? Or have the WWE invited this kind of attitude? Let us know in the comments below.
