WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on jrsbarbq.com. As always, you can purchase JR’s BBQ products on WWEshop.com. Here are some highlights from this entry:
– Roman Reigns winning with his spear over Mark Henry was big…no pun intended. If I had to pick an early favorite to either be the WWE World Champion at WM31 or to win the title there, it would be Reigns. How Roman Reigns is ‘built’ going forward is imperative to the long term success of WWE as it relates to constructing the next, major, WWE superstar.
Ambrose played the smarmy, opportunistic villain role extremely well. There is big money in Dean Ambrose. Ambrose still reminds me of a cross between Roddy Piper and Brian Pillman. That’s high praise by the way.
For those wondering, I’ve always been high on Seth Rollins.
– I’m predicting that Swagger and Big E will have a better match than some skeptics think this Sunday on PPV. Much depends on how they are prepared and “coached up.”
– Loved the Cena vs. Cesaro match. One of the best matches that Cena has had in a while. Cesaro is on the cusp of breaking through. Got lots of feedback on why Cesaro did not win and certainly, as it is almost always, an argument can be made on the topic of who wins and who loses. With great commentary, the loser can come out of a great presentation better than when going into the match. I thought Cesaro was made whole after Cena pulled one out in the bottom of the 9th that could have gone either way.
– It’s also good to see that WWE is developing some new, fan favorites IE Reigns, Bryan, Big E, Cesaro (seemingly) and Cody Rhodes. Could that mean that Sheamus, Ambrose and Rollins, Swagger, Rusev, and others are being groomed for key, villian roles?
