WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross took to his podcast, “The Ross Report”, to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Ross backed a recent idea by fellow Hall Of Famer Bully Ray for the women’s WrestleMania 35 main event, wanting to see a one-on-one match instead of a Triple Threat, and Seth Rollins being able to believably beat Brock Lesnar. Here are the highlights:
“If you really wanted to add some drama to it, and make somebody, [WWE] may consider Busted Open [Radio]’s Bubba Ray Dudley’s suggestion of making it an elimination match, so you’ve got to have two eliminations before one person’s declared the winner. And to me, that’s not a bad idea whatsoever.”
Rather seeing a one-on-one match: “People are getting all upset about this triple threat thing and the suspension, and the potential for a triple threat match,” Ross said. “Hey, I’m like a lot of folks. I’m not sitting here blind. I would rather see Becky Lynch versus Ronda Rousey because that issue became so strong and so personal.
“I’d rather see, finally, those two one-on-one, but that doesn’t look like the way it’s going and there may be reasons for that you and I aren’t aware of. We don’t know how much longer Ronda’s going to be there, if she’s going to start a family. It’s not exactly something you can mark on your calendar.”
Seth Rollins being able to believably beat Brock Lesnar: “Eddie Guerrero beat Brock Lesnar to win the WWE title in the Cow Palace, right? 15 years ago. So when people say, ‘well, so-and-so, Finn Bálor, is not big enough to beat Brock Lesnar. It’s not realistic. It’s not believable.’ Are you kidding?
“Are you that stupid? Same thing with Seth Rollins. He’s no giant, but he’s a hell of a lot bigger than Eddie Guerrero, he’s bigger than Finn Bálor, so I hope we don’t get that excuse, ‘Seth Rollins is too small.’ He’s not. And there [are] a million right ways to beat Brock Lesnar.” Ross said. “Brock Lesnar has a lot more respect for his income than his win/loss record.
“Trust me on that. So I wonder if Lesnar taking Eddie Guerrero for granted in the Cow Palace 15 years ago to lose the WWE title will have any bearing on how he prepares for a smaller guy. Interesting sidebar story, don’t you think?”
