Jim Ross Blog: Regal-Ryder on RAW, Jerry Lawler and the WWE Title

Jim Ross is back with another blog over on Here are a few highlights from this entry:

Jerry Lawler and his match with The Miz:
“Any one who thinks that it’s simply not possible for Jerry Lawler, at age 61 and on a week where he buried his 90 year old mother, to win the WWE title against the Miz this Sunday at the Elimination Chamber needs to rethink their position. It is possible and it damn well could happen. I agree that the King is the underdog going in but what a story for the ages it would make if the WWE HOF’er did win the title. I’m not saying bet the farm on it but IF Jerry Lawler were to somehow, by hook or crook, defeat the Miz Sunday it would be one of the hottest topics around the WWE water cooler in years.

I admit that I legitimately have an emotional investment in this one because of my friendship with Jerry and after seeing first hand what he went through this week.

At least can we all agree that stranger things have happened in WWE over the years can we not?

Miz might not realize it today but Miz will be a better wrestler over the long haul after the learning experience that he will have Sunday night competing with the King.”

The underrated William Regal:
“William Regal’s brief yet effective cameo on the vintage (ugh) Khali Kiss Kam Monday night on Raw was yet another example of how talented the Brit truly is and why I consider Regal one of the most underrated talents in WWE. He’s also a legit tough dude let me assure you.”

    hey all…. looks like my first post was pretty close…. just didnt have Stone cold as guest ref….. and another wrestler in cole corner… I think Lawer will win because they have made him put up with so much s^&t the last three weeks.

  • LVW

    Speaking of Lawler and Taker- one of their 1st ever encounters:

  • drizzt73

    What if Lawler, wins and loses to Taker on 2/21/11? They are pushing Taker for Monday.

    @Soulshroude- you can’t have a Miz match without including Riley in it somewhere.

  • Soulshroude

    Correction, Cole interferes, Jerry sees the opportunity as well as does the miz, Cole tries to distract the ref, a chair gets involved. Lawler ducts the chair, rolls Miz into a small package and gets the win. Miz gets it back the following Monday, or has a huge match with the Miz at Mania since Miz does not have an opponent at the moment. Or looses it Monday on account of Cole and takes on Cole at mania.

    If Lawler were to win the title his reign probably wouldn’t last longer than a week.

  • Comic Book Guy

    probably they will let him win it at EC and on monday night the miz might win it back

    “adam… the marketing genious”

    I’d like to see King get the title for a month or so. He deserves it. AND, it will shake things up before WrestleMania.

  • tim

    Give it to him and let Miz get it back the following night on Raw.

  • adam

    they won’t and shoudlnt because hwo the hell are u going to market jerry lawler as wwe champ going into wrestlmania

  • CM Mark

    Go King go. I hated you in the Von Erich title matches. Now I can FINALLY cheer you on. I hope King gets it, come on WWE, give the man a 30 day title run.
