​Jim Ross Runs Down The Entire WWE SummerSlam Card And Gives Predictions, More


The following are highlights from the latest Jim Ross blog, which features
the WWE Hall Of Famer giving his predictions for tonight’s WWE SummerSlam

On John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar: “If you’ve listened
to my Ross Report Podcast on podcastone.com and iTunes you know that I’ve been
saying for months that I thought Lesnar would win the WWE Title at Sumer Slam
even before Cena regained the championship. I will stay with my prediction as I
feel that WWE is grooming Roman Reigns for the to spot and that Reigns beating
Lesnar next year at WM31 would be a big money match if properly built. Yes, one
can build it ‘properly’ even if Lesnar isn’t a ‘full time’ talent. It’s called
smart booking. It was done for decades with the traveling, NWA Champion.”

On The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler: “Timing is every
thing in the wrestling biz and Ziggler has had too many false starts to endure
many more w/o being looked upon by many frustrated fans negatively. I’d put
Ziggler over and take a positive step in restoring the shine to the IC Title and
what it has meant in years past in WWE…the in ring, work horse champ.”

On AJ Lee vs. Paige: “As I have said many times, AJ
is WWE’s top in ring Diva while Paige has the ability to put herself firmly in
that conversation. Although neither lady may find themselves ever on ‘Totally
Divas,’ and they both may not care, I feel that AJ will retain her title

On Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton: ” ‘The Roman
Empire’ begins its build in earnest with a quality win over a proven, top talent
at a major PPV. WWE is doing a nice job building Reigns who is a work in
progress but, as I’ve said, he has until April 2015 to be truly ready for ‘the
spot.’ Funny how some fans of today’s generation are already having issues with
Reigns which, based on their own reasoning, is embarrassing in my opinion.”

On Rusev vs. Jack Swagger: “It is hard to logically
fathom seeing the Russian Flag prevail over the American flag in a match where
capturing the flag determines the winner. I’m going with my fellow Oklahoman
Jack Swagger who will always be the 2nd toughest wrestling from Perry, Oklahoma
(Next to Dan Hodge) Sunday in LA in this traditional, nationalistic story line.
A loss in this type of match won’t hurt Rusev in the least as he is still a work
in progress too. The more personality Swagger demonstrates the better chance he
has to contribute in a more significant way in WWE.”

On Stephanie McMahon vs. Brie Bella: “I like this
storyline, although I wasn’t crazy about the physical therapist component added
last week implicating Brie’s husband Daniel Bryan having an affair with the
physical therapist, and think that WWE can easily get more mileage out of this
pairing. By hook or crook, I’d get Steph over and continue the rivalry in a very
personal way which may include Nikki Bella. Steph has been a star in this
presentation thus far. For a mother of three who has multiple full time jobs
Mrs. HHH looks great and will represent well in the ring.”

On Bray Wyatt vs. Chris Jericho: “Wyatt needs to
win here and if he doesn’t I’d suggest counseling for all involved in the
decision making process. There’s no reason that these two couldn’t have the
match of the night or damn close to it.”

On Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose: “I’d like to see
Rollins win a close one here and am curious to see how the Lumberjack
Stipulation creatively plays into the match. I’d start the show with this match
and feel that these two will tear down the Staples Center if provided the time
so that they don’t have to rush the process.”
