Jim Ross has a new blog entry up. Highlights are below.
On the Cena/Lesnar match: Cena vs Lesnar- Will Lesnar’s ring rust be a factor? It’s been approximately 8 years since Brock has had a bout in a WWE ring. That could be an issue. Cena seems to feel cornered. Competitive people in this situation are dangerous. Is Cena intimidated by the legend and sheer physical skills of the former UFC Champion? If so, will that take Cena out of his game? Too many unanswered questions for me to feel comfortable about any prediction I make BUT I’m going with Cena to win somehow, someway. Ring rust, Lesnar’s perceived over confidence, and Cena’s sense of urgency fuel my guess.
On the Punk/Jericho match: Punk vs Jericho- Home field advantage should help Punk but it’s no guarantee. Crowd will be rabid especially for this one. This could be a great show closer if called upon and I hope it’s contested mostly in or around the ring. I’ve got Punk winning a heck of a match. However, remember that being at ‘home’ can be a distraction as it relates to family, friends, tickets needed, etc. just something to think about in this WWE Title bout.
