Jim Ross has posted his latest blog on JRSBARBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
On Curtis Axel’s IC Title win: Good for Cutis Axel, the new IC Champion. I wish some cynical fans would stop second guessing every more this kid makes until he can get a little farther down the road in his career journey. I’m confident he will evolve into a significant asset for WWE.
On the Dolph Ziggler/Alberto Del Rio feud: The Ziggler vs. Del Rio match had some psychological qualities of the WM13 bout between Bret Hart and Stone Cold. Great in ring storytelling that provides more questions than answers and plenty of follow up material for episodic TV. Del Rio seems more comfortable in the antagonist tole than he does as a fan favorite. However, I do think that many Hispanic fans will still support their countryman. I’m more interested in the personas of both ADR and Ziggler now than I was prior to Payback.
On Rob Van Dam’s WWE return at Money in the Bank: With the return of RVD to MITB in July and coming off the heels of a strong Payback PPV, it seems as if WWE is building discernable momentum and potential, potent, PPV selling storylines for Summer Slam in LA.
