WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross posted a new blog entry, here are the highlights…
On Daniel Bryan: Daniel Bryan had another terrific night and WWE is booking DB expertly even though some critics will micro analyze the storyline and find fault with it because that’s simply what they do. As I have said for many weeks, I fully expect Daniel Bryan to have a significant “WrestleMania Moment” in NOLA on April 6. Just waiting on a handful of fans to complain now that the Bryan story is now too “predictable.” Please…stop my pain.
On John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt: What if I told you that John Cena and Bray Wyatt will arguably steal the show at WM30? Roll your eyes if you want but when you pair two, athletic performers with legit football backgrounds, both offensive linemen, expect their work rate to increase and their match to be a ’10’ on the physicality chart
On The Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal: Not totally surprised that WWE is going to have a 30 man battle royal in the name of Andre the Giant as WWE usually adds a multi person match to attempt to get as many talents on WrestleMania as possible. I still remain firm that appearing on WM30 is an earned opportunity and not anyone’s right of passage. With that said, I’m not unhappy that several talents will now get in the game. Good for them and hopefully it doesn’t cause the four hour marathon to be shorted on the time needed for specific main event level bouts
On Sheamus vs. Christian: Sheamus and Christian are showing their value to WWE by having consistently strong bouts on a weekly basis. Younger talents can learn a great deal from Christian who is one of our best hires. Jay Reso aka Christian was never a problem and always was a valued team player while I was in WWE. If any thing, Christian has been undervalued at times because he was never the squeaky wheel.
On RAW Improving: Without question the bell to bell content of Monday Night RAW has improved significantly over the past few weeks. Yeah, I know that I[m old school and the butt of the occasional joke on RAW but I know what I like and I like physicality, believability and realism….not bad acting or failed attempts at humor.
