Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry, here
are the highlights…
On RAW’s Opening Segment: The opening segment
with the children’s choir eventually wearing sheep masks was provocative but at
the end of the well produced segment I am not sure what was accomplished. Not
sure why I did not ‘get it’ and you’re welcome to insert your own joke here as I
am sure many will. Bray Wyatt should win the cage match this Sunday at Extreme
Rules in Jersey but who knows? Cena is still the face of the company and Wyatt
escaping the cage, I am not an escape the cage aficionado BTW, helps the
newcomer and doesn’t do any irreparable harm to Cena. Plus, it extends the story
line one would assume.
On The Closing Segment of RAW: Older lions vs
the new lions, IE Evolution vs. The Shield, have a clearly defined issue and
should have a good one on Sunday. I’d expect the younger guys to get a signature
win this Sunday. Not sure what the Ric Flair element did for the late show
On Daniel Bryan vs. Kane: The WWE World
Champion Daniel Bryan is ‘injured’ and his title is in serious jeopardy via the
story line but was that message made abundantly clear Monday night? The hero at
risk is a good philosophical, pro wrestling trait. I still think that Kane and
Bryan will have an overachieving match on Sunday.
On His Podcasts: Talking to Bill Goldberg
tonight (Tuesday) for a future Ross Report Podcast. Looking forward to it. The
Gail Kim interview drops later today on podcastone.com and via iTunes. One of my
favorite podcasts to date. Great take on WWE vs. Impact Wrestling. Our Shawn
Michaels podcast will now be split into two parts the first of which will drop
next Tuesday PM May 6. It’s awesome…case closed and must be heard.
