Jim Ross Speaks On Seth Rollins’ Knee Injury, Plans For John Cena At WrestleMania 33, More


WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog on his website and here are the highlights:

On Seth Rollins’ knee injury:

“Sad to hear that Seth Rollins re-injured his knee Monday night on Raw while being assaulted by Samoa Joe. A torn MCL generally takes about 6-8 weeks to heal and be cleared which might allow Rollins to go ahead with his match at Wrestlemania with HHH. This entire matter will depending on what Dr James Andrews staff has to say regarding clearing Rollins to return to the ring. Rollins showed magnificent resolve rehabbing his last knee injury and I have no doubt that he will do the same again with this less severe injury. Plus I believe that HHH vs Rollins can be a tremendous match without it having to be laden with risky moves for move’s sake. Unless Rollins experiences complications while rehabbing this latest injury, I am optimistic that the Rollins-HHH bout at Wrestlemania will proceed.”

On the rumored WrestleMania 33 match that will see Nikki Bella & John Cena vs. Maryse & The Miz:

“Rumors abound that John Cena will be in a mixed tag bout at Wrestlemania teaming with Nikki Bella vs Mr and Mrs. Mike Mizanan. Further speculation is that it might well be Nikki’s last bout and if so she could retire with her current, significant other, John Cena at her side. It does speak however as to what will be the disposition of the WWE Title that Cena has won or does it essentially say tha Cena may well lose the Title at the Elimination Chamber event later this month. If Miz and Maryse cost Cena John’s 16th title in some form then the mixed tag concept for Wrestlemania has more credence.”

On Corey Graves’ send off from NXT:

“Nice to see Corey Graves get such a classy send off from NXT as he will be moving exclusively to the RAW roster to broadcast with Michael Cole and Byron Saxton. Graves has a stellar upside and I expect him to continue to evolve and up his game and if he does he could make his mark in the pro wrestling broadcast game in a prominent way. Broadcasters, see Mike Goldberg of the UFC, are often times immediately forgotten when they leave a show, even under sensible circumstances. I thought Jerry Lawler would get some special treatment when he left the air on a regular basis after so many years in WWE. Graves is the brightest young, on air talent that WWE has developed in years and will certainly reunite with the talented Tom Phillips, who I am also a fan of, in the future one has to assume. Both Tom and Cory are keepers for sure.”
