Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry. Here are the highlights…
On The Big Show and RAW’s main angle: Perplexing and unique night in many ways for Monday Night’s edition of RAW. The final two segments of the show had me scratching my head especially that surprising, last commercial break. The obvious, over riding theme of the broadcast was the issue between the South Carolina native Big Show and WWE COO HHH. That’s the match that fans seemingly want to see based on the feedback that I have received and my own take as a fan. I’m curious to see what more will be done to ignite the WWE Title bout at Survivor Series between the “Biggest Gamecock of them All” and Randy Orton considering that HHH has more antagonist momentum than does RKO or so it seems. Nonetheless that ‘s the beauty of producing TV where things can change in a few broadcasts to spark more interest in a specific rivalry. Let’s see if that gets done. Nonetheless, WWE has some work to do to re-address the Big Show situation especially after doing such a stellar job of re-building him over the past several weeks in a nicely done, episodic manner. I still don’t know why no one came out to attempt to help Show who was being assaulted by a corporate gang of assailants. Locker room scared? Had they hit the road?
On Punk, Bryan and The Wyatts: Anxious to watch CM Punk and Daniel Bryan team to face the Wyatt’s down the road. This will help the Wyatt’s develop more villain nuances and give them the proverbial ‘rub’ that they need. Right now the Wyatt’s are only villains because they are battling two, established fan favorites and not because of the style of work of the bizarre trio. I have great expectations for the Wyatt’s in the future but I see them as character, fan favorites at this time. Plus, if Punk and Bryan team…they could some day break up and have a series of classic matches that no one in WWE could follow. That’s my fantasy booking for the day. Follow that, guys.
On the Rhodes Brothers: The reunion of the Rhodes Brothers has been a breath of fresh air within WWE over the past several weeks. Really enjoyable to see their storyline evolve. The grandsons of a plumber have been involved some the best matches on any WWE TV show the past several weeks. That’s not a coincidence. Dustin Runnels aka Goldust rebirth, not only as a performer but as a man, has been nothing short of miraculous.
On the commentary of the six-man tag-team match: Loved the 6 man tag on RAW but thought that 5 guys at the announce table was a little overkill. This idea likely looked like a great on paper but didn’t pan out when the red light went on. It’s all about the execution of the plan. We’ve all been there.
