Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry. Here are the highlights…
On Punk vs. Lesnar: Loved the physicality of the Punk- Lesnar business in Title Town, sorry, Packer haters. I expect to see plenty of slobber knockers from these two at Summer Slam. Both men like to be physical and to push their adversaries to the limit which endears both to me. What if I said that I think that this match could well end in a submission, would you think that I'm Pet Coon goofy? Never say never in the WWE as both men love to look for tapouts. Is it likely? Probaly not but it certainly could happen. Paul Heyman could certainly be the wild card in this match and one has to assume that Happy Heyman will be involved to some degree. To what degree could determine how this first meeting of Punk and Lesnar ends. By first meeting, I hope/expect there to be another one on one wrestling match between the two.
On Bryan vs. Cena: There seems to be multiple twists and turns as to where the WWE Title situation may evolve. With the McMahon Family involved, the likely show closing main event could end in a myriad of manners. Obviously one can't omit MITB winner Randy Orton from this scenario either. I think that Bryan and Cena will match up well and with the added elements that could be put into play, this match should be excellent. No reason for it not to be. It could be a match of the year candidate and, arguably, might not be the match of the night.
SummerSlam: Summer Slam was always one of my favorite PPV's to broadcast back in the day. It just seemed to be timely as it relates to the time elapsed from WrestleMania. I will be comfortably and happily watching the event from the 2K Sports Suite in the Staples Center come show time.
