WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross published another blog entry this week on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights:
– @WWEDanielBryan vs. @WWERollins was one of the best bouts on RAW in many moons. This was excellent from start to finish, an announcer’s dream really, and is a great match for NXT athletes or those wanting o make it to WWE Development to study. Both the winner and the loser improved their perception and enhanced their personas when this match ended.
– AJ Lee’s impassioned promo was her best ever, for my BBQ sauce anyway, & her segment with Kaitlyn was the most compelling Diva segment that I can recall in quite some time.
– Wyatt Family video #3. Another great, creative production building anticipation for the pending debut of Bray Wyatt and his “Family.” It doesn’t bother me when fans on Twitter @JRsBBQ compare Bray Wyatt with Waylon Mercy no more than it did when fans compared Waylon Mercy to ‘Cape Fear’s’ Sam Cady.
– Antonio Cesaro. Had the best, short Sin Cara match that I can recall and got a nice win in the process. I’m a fan of Cesaro’s work and feel he can evolve into a main event level talent in WWE. Cesaro’s skill set is loaded with subtle things which arguably makes one take a longer route to reach the top. Cesaro’s another talent that I would covet if I ever started a wrestling territory….which I’m not.
– Dolph Ziggler. Happy to see the World Champ back. @HeelZiggler return lacked typical Ziggler flair but I’m sure that he will more than make up for that perception come Sunday in Chicago on PPV. WWE getting Ziggler back is timely to say the least.
– Jericho vs. Punk. Hopefully these two will deliver the goods Sunday based on the hype the hardcore fans are demanding and predicting. I’m not backing away from what I said a week or so ago…this match will be challenging to follow because the crowd’s emotional investment for their hometown hero will be so organically passionate…and loud.
