WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted his latest blog online. Here are the highlights.
On WWE Roadblock:
“A solid show that apparently did not adequately motivate the live audience in Pittsburgh. I’m happy that I watched WWE ROADBLOCK on the WWE Network. However, it also reminded me that there are some less than positive trends within the business in general as it relates to in ring execution and logic/psychology that are perplexing.”
On Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte Flair:
“There was lots of pressure on Sasha and Charlotte to have some sort of history making match in the 30 Minute Ironman Match. I enjoyed the match but how the finish was executed was perplexing to me unless it is going to lead to a persona change for either women. The live audience, arguably, harmed this match more than any on the card considering the stipulation and positioning on the card. I had no issue that this match did not close the show either.”
On Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens:
“Tough situation to be in for both Roman Reigns, who is cast as the fan fav but he’s actually not, and for KO who is cast/booked as the villain but he’s cheered versus Reigns. These two worked hard of which I truly appreciate and respect but the run-on finish seemed to fall a bit flat but that may be just me. That matter will obviously be addressed Monday night on RAW so I’ll ‘stay tuned’ as they say in TV Land.”
